1. Material Properties:

Hardness: Silicon Carbide (SiC) is extremely hard, reportedly being harder than pure steel by a factor of 127 times. This extreme hardness is due to its unique crystal structure, which is similar to a diamond tetrahedral structure, resulting in high modulus values, hardness, and specific strength.
Density: Silicon Carbide (SiC) has a low density compared to metals, making it an attractive material for armor applications where weight reduction is crucial.
Chemical Inertness: Silicon Carbide (SiC) exhibits chemical inertness in many environments, providing resistance to corrosion and other chemical attacks.

2. Armor Application:

Bulletproof Capabilities: Silicon Carbide (SiC) armor plates are capable of resisting impacts from high-caliber ammunition, including AK47 API, calibre 7.62 mm×51 mm AP(P80), and calibre 12.7 mm×99 API(P1947) gunshots. Their extreme hardness ensures that even with repeated strikes, they maintain their integrity.
Lightweight: Silicon Carbide (SiC) armor plates are significantly lighter than traditional steel armor, reducing the overall weight burden on vehicles and personnel. This allows for improved maneuverability and reduced fuel consumption.
Multi-Purpose Applications: Silicon Carbide (SiC) armor plates can be used in various applications, including helicopters, armored vehicles, police vehicles, and VIP transportation. They can be integrated into seats, floors, walls, and other critical areas to provide comprehensive protection.

3. Manufacturing:

Manufacturing Difficulty: The synthesis of Silicon Carbide (SiC) is challenging, requiring specialized techniques and equipment. This contributes to the high cost of Silicon Carbide (SiC) armor plates.
Cost: Due to the difficulty in manufacturing and the specialized nature of the material, Silicon Carbide (SiC) armor plates tend to be more expensive than traditional steel or aluminum armor. However, the superior ballistic performance and weight reduction often justify the higher cost.

In summary, Silicon Carbide (SiC) armor plates offer unparalleled ballistic protection due to their extreme hardness, lightweight, and chemical inertness. Their multi-purpose applications make them suitable for use in various vehicles and equipment, providing comprehensive protection against high-caliber threats.
