Global Bullet-proof Glass Market: Overview
Bullet-proof glass, also referred to as transparent armor, ballistic glass, or bullet-resistant glass, is an important element of security systems installed at places that are likely to encounter violent assaults such as robberies, or in cash trucks, banks, premium vehicles, display cases, ATM booths, and other applications that call for advanced security features and protection from bullets and small projectiles. Bullet-proof glasses are intended to resist one or more rounds of bullets depending on the thickness of the glass or on the weapon used to fire at them.
Bullet-proof glasses are made from a variety of materials, including thermoplastics, acrylics, polycarbonates, and glass-clad polycarbonates, depending on the level of protection sought for an application. Most bullet-proof glasses are made of layers of one or more types of these materials or the conventional tempered glass. In some cases, bullet-proof glasses may not contain even a miniscule amount of actual “glass” to call it so.
