Israel-based ApNano's subsidiary develop the new NanoArmor line of nanotechnology bullet-proof jackets.
The Nano Armor products will be made of tungsten disulfide (WS2) nanoparticles and enable it to produce over 50% lighter weight armor products. The material was subjected to severe shocks generated by firing shots at it at impact velocities of up to 1.5 km/second. The nanospheres withstood the shock pressures generated by the impacts of up to 250 tons per square centimeter. The unique nanotubes of ApNano Materials are up to 4-5 times stronger than steel and about 6 times stronger than Kevlar.
