Polish experts from the research center and Moratex MIAT Institute in Warsaw held a test body armor, in which instead of Kevlar, metal and ceramic plates used non-Newtonian fluid.

Liquid, known as the Shear-Thickening Fluid (STF), hardens on impact, regardless of temperature, providing protection from falling bullets and promoting energy dissipation over a larger area. The composition of the fluid specialists do not open.

"We have been tasked to get a liquid that could stop a bullet, flying at a speed of 450 m / s. In the end, we did it, "- says Marcin Struzhchik of Moratex.



Vest liquid armor is more secure because tight to the body. It allows you to effectively dissipate energy, thereby protecting the internal organs. In addition, these vests less constraining movements.

Polish researchers are also working on the technology of using magnetorheological fluid as armor.

STF and magnetorheological fluid can be used not only for military purposes, the researchers said. These fluids can be used for the manufacture of equipment athletes, bumpers for cars and guardrails.
