USA – -( Morgan Advanced Materials’ Composites and Defense Systems business announces the availability of its buoyant, lightweight rifle plates, capable of stopping 7.62mm rifle ammunition.

The ergonomically designed rifle plates offer exceptional performance and are therefore ideal for police and security personnel.

Extensive testing has proven that the plates perform well, even under extreme temperature conditions, and are capable of withstanding close multi-hit shot spacing.

“Our customers are thrilled with this new technology, since more and more police and security personnel are being targeted by high powered hunting or assault rifles,” said James Kempston, Business Manager of Morgan Composites and Defense Systems.

“Morgan’s new technology protects against these rounds with a highly ergonomic, comfortable and lightweight plate. The result is exiting – a plate that fits and feels like it’s not even there.”

The new rifle plates from Composites and Defense Systems weight less than 1 kg (2.2 lb) and are just 20mm thick. They feature an ergonomic, multi-curve design.
