Ultra Light Anti-Ballistic Nano-Denier material

16 August 2002

USDR Global Aerospace Ltd is developing products for a broad range of applications based upon its proprietary nano-denier G-Lam ultra light weight anti-ballistic material.

G-lam material has excellent dielectric properties and compared to Aramid fibers has very low moisture regain. Applications include direct replacement fairings for helicopters that provide high levels of ballistic protection with no weight penalty, anti-ballistic radomes for airborne, military and law enforcement applications that offer radar transmission transparency and ballistic protection, light weight XO skeletal body armor for the future soldier initiative, portable blast containment units, turbine engine containment systems, and anti-ballistic enhanced aircraft thermal/acoustical insulation blankets.

""We have only scratched the surface of the possible applications for G-Lam and its derivative products. Our engineers continue to find new and novel ways to assemble the materials, modify the surface chemistry, and enhance the materials' capabilities for performance-specific applications. This type of flexibility is a testament of the advancements yet to be realized through our application of the nano sciences to material development."" said John Robinson, chief executive officer of Caring Products International, Inc. and USDR Global Aerospace Ltd.

panel material for initial use in the Company's Guardian Anti-Ballistic Panel Cockpit Security Door. The Guardian(TM) Door maintains a weight of less than 50 lbs., is designed to prevent forced entry into the cockpit, is extremely thin, protects against small arms fire, maintains projectile capturing anti-ballistic characteristics and is non-flammable and non-toxic when exposed to open flame.
