Our Applications

Innovative material (C/SiC) solutions for tailor-made high-performance ballistic protection are a new development of the SGL Group. The ceramics developed for this purpose consist of matrix-reinforced carbon fibers and have already proven their extraordinary properties.

Strategic factors such as reduced weight and complex geometrically formed components offer a series of advantages in the areas of protection for military wheeled and track vehicles, helicopters and ships in comparison with conventional ballistic ceramics.
