Our advanced technologies are already proven. We currently hold NIJ IIIA and NIJ III certification for our initial solution offering. This means that our ballistics protection material will stop any handgun made by man including multiple hits from a .44 magnum. NIJ level IV certification is also now available for more advanced assault rifle protection which is usually only a requirement for military application. Our materials and solutions are so strong that we are now finalizing blast-protection solutions with the same light-weight, lower cost, more dynamic principles in mind.
Our current plate options:
Each plate is offered in custom options - changing Hybrid construction for full poly; replacing Cordura fabric cover with Polyurea (which also increases the warranty to 10 years from the standard 5 years).
On 9/28/2016, ShotStop Ballistics formally obtained listing on the National Institute of Justice Advanced Armor Manufacturers List.
In addition to National Institute of Justice certification, all ShotStop engineered solutions go through a long and rigorous testing process and customer-approval process as well as UL listing process before market entry.
ShotStop Ballistics, LLC is a registered SAM (System for Award Management) contractor Cage Code 6E2Z9 listed in the Central Federal Contracting Agency Registry number and we manufacture and maintain QC standards with ISO 9000 facilities.
The chart below is an illustration which compares ShotStop technologies at NIJ level III protection to the three primary competitive technologies (Aramids, Ceramics and Metals). The bottom axis is density per sq. foot (weight) and the vertical axis is price per square ft at wholesale price. The red ink illustrates how our technology compares.

Since 1965, with the invention of Kevlar by US-based scientist, Stephanie Kwolek, the global ballistics protection market has seen little innovation to meet the ever-increasing market needs.
As geo-political uncertainty, crime and terrorism continue to trend upward at alarming rates, the market demand for more dynamic, more affordable, lighter weight ballistics protection raw materials and solutions are heavily intensifying on a global scale.
The three primary questions relating to the purchase of ballistics protection solutions, regardless of public or private sector needs are:
Current market technologies including aramids, ceramics and metals are in many cases too expensive, too heavy or incapable of being engineered to properly fit the true requirements of real world applications.
ShotStop Ballistics, LLC patent protected technologies and processes are finally introducing the disruptive technological advancements that have been demanded by the ballistics protection market for the past 30+ years.
Add comfort to the mix, and it makes our differentiation even stronger. Our Duritium® Technology allows for curves, flexibility and dynamic application in design, which in turn results in a much more comfortable fit for body armor, in particular.
Our purpose is to save as many lives as possible. Our strong company and unmatched ballistics protection technologies are making this a reality.
