Bullet Resistant Polycarbonate is manufactured to high tolerances without ripples or wave patterns and is a non-ricochet material. When fired upon, this product will not ricochet the bullet or any bullet fragments. The bullet is captured entirely within the polycarbonate. Secondly, bullet resistant polycarbonate is non-spalling. Spalling occurs when a material is fired upon and small fragments of that material become airborne, thus causing possible harm itself. Finally, bullet resistant polycarbonate has a slightly grayish tint / no glare quality which make it highly desirable when being used in conjunction with security cameras.
Bullet resistant polycarbonate is available in UL-752 Levels 1-3 and can also be clad with glass for use with exterior applications or where scratch resistance is of concern.
