Exote Armor Technology

Exote titanium carbide armor, showing effective endurance in stopping multi-hit attacks.This composite armor material is formed of titanium-carbide metal matrix, attached to metal or composite base liner. Exote armor is produced in various shapes and thicknesses, ranging from small 5x5cm cubes to 20x20cm tiles. This material is claimed to be able to break even the hardest AP bullets, as its structural design and high hardness completely eliminates the penetrating bullet and this fact enabling use of thinner composite liners. The damage to the armor, caused by the absorption of one hit is 20-30% of the caliber of the bullet. According to the manufacturer, Exote resists multi-hits better than alumina or boron carbide ceramics.
