Bullet Resistant- Blast Resistant " Window Film".

Bullet Resistant " Window Film". We are just amazed at the number of Window Film companies that advertise that their thin films are "Bullet Resistant" and or can offer protection from large Bomb Blasts, such as what took place in Oklahoma City a few years back. The truth is, it is impossible for any type of "Window Film" to offer real Ballistic Protection at all. Window film resists forced entry and prolonged attack from hammers, hatchets, baseball bats, sledge hammers pick ax, etc. Window Film works very well for this narrow application. We have to wonder who they can sleep at night after making ridiculous claims.

Bulletproof Glass is a colloquial term for glass that is particularly resistant to being penetrated when struck by bullets. However there is no such thing as "BulletProof". The correct term is "Bullet Resistant". True Bullet Resistant Glass is made by laminating multiple layers of glass bonded together with high adhesion bonding interlayers of polyvinyl butyral, polyurethane or ethylene-vinyl acetate. This process is done under heat and pressure in an autoclave.

Bullet Resistant Glass is then tested to specific ballistic threats as set by the National Institute of Justice [ N.I.J.] and Underwriters Laboratories [ U.L.] threat levels. And are independently tested by a certified ballistic testing lab. The most recognized is H.P. White Laboratories Inc., or University of Dayton Research Institute. We have never seen any Window Film Company produce the required Ballistic Test Reports, which is the norm for all Bullet Resistant Glass Manufacturers. They proclaim to have done numerous "BackYard" tests. Some of these so called testers have made the claim the their films slow down the projectile? what....!! your still dead.........!

Real Bullet Resistant Glass can offer protection from small caliber handguns such as .22, 9mm, .44 magnum up to a .50 caliber armor piercing rifle rounds . The thickness of Bullet Resistant Glass can be from .825" thick to over 5" thick and weigh anywhere from 8.89 lbs per sq. ft. to over 50 lbs per sq. ft. False claims by Window Film manufacturers can get people killed. Check with any Bullet Resistant Glass Manufacturer to independently verify this statement.

With regards to "Blast Mitigation" this is a highly specialized area of protection. U.S. Military and Government Contractors such as Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Pine Bluff Military Arsenal, U.S. Army Aviation & Missile Command, Redstone Arsenal, and Ballelle Memorial Institute are working to design protective systems to counter such threats. Window Film is not a proper solution for such a massive threat.

One company called "Glass Strengthening Systems" has made an absolutely ridiculous claim that they did a "Private Test" using 1400 pounds of explosives, and that their "Film" stopped any penetration at 184 feet. I wonder if they had a failure at 185 feet. First, one must wonder how in the world Glass Strengthening Systems could legally obtain 1400 pounds of explosives, let alone detonate them with out proper sanctioning from ATF. Why was this done as a "Private" un sanctioned test. Professionally speaking any "REAL" tests of this manor would be carried out under very strict protocol, under supervision of the U.S. Government, and independently tested by a certified ballistic testing lab. Where is the test data, and certification ?

Kevlar Ballistic Fabrics

Extensive market research has indicated that there is a large demand for Kevlar Ballistic Fabrics, that has largely been unfilled or supplied by companies with little or no experience in Bullet Resistant Products, as such we will be adding a new line of Kevlar Fabrics to our website in the next few days. With Bulldog Direct Protective Systems Inc. being a leading and trusted supplier to the U.S. Military and Government for over 10 years, we have had a high volume of requests from our large customer base.
Ballistic Fabrics

Kevlar® is a para-aramid fiber which displays excellent dimensional stability over a wide range of temperatures for prolonged periods. Even at temperatures of 320° F (160° C) Kevlar® shows essentially no embattlement or strength loss. Kevlar® fiber also has excellent dimensional stability with a slightly negative coefficient of thermal expansion (-1.1 X 10-6/° F or -0.2 X 10-6/° C). Kevlar ® fiber does not melt or support combustion but will start to decompose at about 800° F (427° C).

Kevlar® 29 &129 are tough yarns which are better suited for ballistic protection and are used both in soft body armor applications such as personal protection ballistic vests, and as robust reinforcements for a variety of hard armor applications, racing helmets, ballistic helmets, spall panels, ballistic blankets and electronic housing protection. This Style Kevlar has also been used in many industrial type applications.

Kevlar ® KM2, made in 400 denier, 600 denier and 850 denier, is a high performance product variant specially designed for use in Military ballistic applications. These yarns are used in both soft and hard military products to defeat multiple threats.

Kevlar® LT is a new yarn that’s used in the development of the lightest weight body armor products on the market today. This new yarn is mainly used in the civilian police products to provide comfortable, high level protection.

Kevlar® K-159 was developed for correctional institutions as the first stab resistant fabric.
