Armor and ballistic steel from SSAB

Bullet hitting Armox® plate

On the safe side

If an armored steel plate is the only thing standing between a human being and a bullet travelling at 925 meters per second, it better be Armox® protection plate. No matter if you are building an armored vehicle for military troop transport, a limousine for a corporate VIP or a panic room for a celebrity, Armox® is a bulletproof steel with a proven power to protect lives and property.

A steel armor with a proud heritage

Armox® is made by the Swedish special steels manufacturer SSAB, a world leader in quenched and tempered steel.

This armor plate starts as pure iron ore mined in northern Sweden. Advanced metallurgical processes ensure the steel reaches exactly the right properties to provide maximum protection.

Guaranteed stopping power

Armox® protection plates can be delivered with guaranteed ballistic properties. Each grade and thickness is tested according to the most extensive and stringent international standards.

In addition we cooperate with leading independent laboratories for ballistic testing in order to offer steel plate armor certified to your required standards.

Bulletproof workshop performance

Armox® steel plate is cleaner than most other steels. The low carbon content makes it easier to weld. Electrodes with low hydrogen content minimize the risk for cold cracking.

High toughness relative to its hardness gives Armox® good bending properties. High thickness precision and uniform properties ensure superior repeatability in the workshop.

As we control the entire production process, we can offer tighter tolerances than others. This saves time for our customers as our plates fit right away without levelling after cutting.
