NIJ Notice of Compliance

Our advanced technologies are already proven. We currently hold NIJ IIIA and NIJ III compliance 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 compliance 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.

Stopping two AP rounds would be impressive. The fact that this plate stopped six rounds from 15 feet is unheard of.

What do the names mean? Here's a quick breakdown - a "key" of sorts - to help explain:

Our current plate options:

  • Duritium III+HS - Standard Hybrid Constructed

  • Duritium III+PS - Standard Polyethylene Constructed

  • Duritium III+GT - Hybrid Construction, Green Tip/Brown Tip/M855 A1 Protection

  • Duritium III+PA - 100% Poly, Lightest Advanced Armor Available

  • Duritium IV+HS - Standard Hybrid Construction at Level IV Threat Protection

 

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).

The Need

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:

  1. How much does it cost?
  2. How much does it weigh?
  3. How versatile/dynamic to the specific need is it?

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.
