CeraNova’s transparent spinel delivers the high strength and optical clarity needed to provide protection from small arms fire in ground and air vehicles.  Our spinel was tested by the U.S. Army and has been shown to provide ballistic protection that is comparable or better than a range of competing materials, at an equal or lower cost.  Furthermore, CeraNova transparent spinel can be formed into near net shape parts to enable applications requiring 3D shapes and significantly reduce finishing costs.
