A proud heritage of protecting people and property

Armox® was born and raised for one single purpose – to protect human life. We do that by providing the world’s leading manufacturers of protection equipment with the most sophisticated armor and ballistic steel grades.

Armox® grades Get free technical advice

Armox® has been the armor steel of choice since it was launched in 1983. It’s been constantly developed during the years. The protection against ballistic projectiles and explosives is stronger than ever. Today we can reach the same level of security with a steel that is half as thick as 40 years ago. This gives large benefits in handling and weight reduction.

Where protection starts

Production of the world’s most advanced protection plate starts with the careful selection of raw materials. From there we master every step of the production process: steelmaking, metallurgy, casting, slab reheating, rolling, quenching and tempering. 

Our understanding of exactly how each step affects the properties of the steel, the desire to continuously find new ways to refine the process, and the ability to fully control the complete process is how Armox® can offer you a superior range of protection steel.

How to save 50% weight with equal protection

Making this a ‘mission possible’ is the result of unparalleled product development. Reaching the same protection level against projectiles with a plate half as thick allows for 50% lighter armor solutions.
