CAMAC® Spall Liner
CAMAC® spall liner improves crew and platform survivability through the mitigation of behind armour effects, delivering improved protection to the crew against the effects of blast.
We have specific expertise to form CAMAC® spall liner to meet specific platform requirements including shaping to complex geometries and integrating with existing fixtures. This reduces joins whilst increasing the protection level and space available within a vehicle.
Used in combination with CAMAC® structural or appliqué armour, CAMAC® spall armour also offers enhanced protection from Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and artillery fragments.
Flat panel and shaped spall liner options
NP Aerospace offer cost effective flat panel spall liner kit, or performance optimised single piece shaped spall liner to increase coverage and survivability. For a <5% increase in mass, Effective coverage is increased 35%.
Spall Liner Materials
CAMAC® spall liner is available in a range of materials including Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), Aramid Reinforced Composite and Glass Fibre Reinforced Composite.
Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE)
This is our most advanced spall liner option, delivering exceptional ballistic performance at a very low density (~1gcc). UHMWPE provides the highest ballistic efficiency offering high baseline V50 performance and the largest reduction in spall cone angle for a given mass.
Aramid Reinforced Composite
This spall liner has a very low density (~1.4gcc) and display good physical properties. They can be used to support light loads and provide high ballistic and fire / smoke performance. Aramid systems are effective at reducing spall cone angle during overmatch scenarios.
Glass Fibre Reinforced Composite
This spall liner material has a low density (~2gcc) with good mix of physical properties including excellent mechanical strength combined with ballistic and fire / smoke performance. The high tensile and compressive strength of glass fibre are key factors to both ballistic and mechanical performance which allows the panels to be used in structural applications.
Key benefits of using CAMAC® spall liner include:
- Improved crew and platform survivability through the mitigation of behind armour effects, delivering improved protection to the crew against the effects of blast if a vehicle is struck.
- Increased coverage, reduced fixing points and reduced assembly time (shaped spall liners).
- Enhanced protection when combined with CAMAC® Appliqué or Structural armour.
- Ability to form shaped spall armour – reducing interfaces, increasing protection and space efficiency
