CoorsTek produces ceramic armor plates used as the outer layer of lightweight composite armor (armour). Due to the high hardness of the alumina and silicon carbide ceramic plates, they can break up the armor-piercing bullet, and the woven backing (fiberglass, Kevlar™ or Spectra™) catches the fragment. The assembly is approximately half the weight of steel and it does the same job. This armor is used as protection for police, defense and military personnel.
