Weight comparison of armour materialsExote-Armour is a metal matrix composite. It is bound to a metallic or composite liner behind the hard armour base to prevent hard metal particles from the destroyed bullet from penetrating the structure.

Exote-Armour plates can be produced in almost any shape and thickness. The most popular plate sizes vary from 50 x 50 to 200 x 200 mm. Exote-Armour is produced in all thicknesses from 6 to 30 mm.

Exote-Armour's melting point is exceptionally high. It endures acetylene, laser and plasma cutters. The armour is incombustible, non-toxic, rustproof and it does not oxidize.

Exote-Armour objects can be produced as functionally graded compositions where the material characteristics can gradually change from e.g., very hard (for impact side) to softer and stiffer (for side attached to liner).
