Going Ballistic: ArmorThane Tests Gun Fire Protection With Specialized Cameras

Going Ballistic: ArmorThane Tests Gun Fire Protection With Specialized Cameras


Various thicknesses of a typical aromatic polyurea elastomer were subjected to impact from various projectiles.

  1. First off, bare concrete bricks were subjected to projectile shots from a .38 Special and 9mm firearm.
  2. Next, the concrete structure was coated in 1/8 inch of ArmorThane’s protective coating. Gel blocks were positioned in front of the blocks, and the same guns were shot at the target. This time, the bullet was unable to penetrate the structure, and in fact, it reversed course back into the gel before finally making its final exit out the back end of the block.
  3. The final test was completed using the still coated blocks with the gel blocks removed. This time, the bullet penetrated the coating but could not penetrate the concrete block. This test also showed how protective coatings eliminate the shrapnel and allow no concrete chips or fragmentation.
