BALLISTIC FUEL TANK PROTECTION

Ref no. LM13 Battle Jacket

BALLISTIC FUEL TANK PROTECTION (BATTLEJACKET®)

SME is an approved distributor for High Impact Technology’s BattleJacket® Ballistic and Blast Protection in Africa.

The BattleJacket® is an application to a fuel tank which makes the fuel tank self sealing (“healing”). The healing of the tank is due to a unique absorbent elastomer which can also elongate by 350%.

This elongation property allows the bullet to pass through the coating and immediately close. During the passage of the bullet, it dislodges/exposes the encapsulated MEBs (a special swellable super absorbent polymer). A pressure wave forces fuel back out through the entrance hole activating the MEBs, which then react and form a permanent “plug”, thereby self-sealing.
