Introduction

About Industeel

Protection steels Industeel is a first-class producer of ballistic protection steel plates. Mars® is a family of steel grades specially designed for military and civil ballistic protection. Its patented chemical composition provides high protection, often beyond technical specifications, with significantly lower weights.


QUIET PLATES:

Thanks to our efficient and soft quenching process, eliminating residual stress, we guarantee quiet plates with:

  • No deformation during and after cutting
  • Low residual magnetism

FLATNESS

Our unique quenching press machine gives excellent results in terms of guaranteed flatness (95% plates <1.5mm/m) assuring:

  • Easier welding
  • Better integration

TIGHT TOLERANCES

In addition to quarto plates, Industeel offers a wide range of cut-to-length sheets (up to 10mm) with tight tolerances (+/-0,2mm) thus allowing weight reduction.

Armor Steel Plates

Mars® 280

Rolled Homogeneous Armor heat treated for maximum resistance to shock. Mars® 280 is a less hardness (typical 280 HBW), high toughness protection steel offering maximum resistance to shock and blast waves for all vehicle structures (main battle tanks, armored personal carriers …).

Mars® 380

Rolled Homogeneous Armor for ballistic protection & evaluation of armor-defeating ammunition
Easy processing (for a wide range of thicknesses), while keeping good and multipurpose ballistic properties for any kind of threat
Adapted metallurgical properties according to specific requirements (chemical composition, hardness range, thickness range…)
Excellent homogeneity and reproducibility
Available in different classes:
Class 1: for vehicules structures
Class 3: for targets for the evaluation of armor-defeating ammunitions Example of Mars® 380 integration

  • Medium and heavy tank structures
  • Floors for all kinds of vehicles
  • Ship and frigate construction
  • Observation posts, buildings

Mars® 440

Medium Hard Armor
Optimal ballistic protection against mines and IED explosion thanks to its excellent hardness, toughness and ductility properties.
Excellent workability particularly bending and welding for building complex designs used for blast protection. (V shape floor)
Available in two versions:

  • Quenched and tempered: for floors and undersides of light and medium vehicles from 4 to 50 mm
  • Air-Hardened, auto-tempering: specially adapted to hot-forming for V shape underbellies of heavy vehicle, from 20 to 80 mm

Mars® 440 has been qualified by the military as preferred material due to its remarkable resistance to blast during testing on prototypes.
Floors structure from light vehicles up to heavy tanks, deflectors to upgrade existing floor, Mars® 440 replies easily to any undersides configurations.

  • Blast and IED protection
  • V shape floors for light and medium vehicles
  • Bottom sides of medium vehicles
  • Underbelly for heavy tank
  • Deflectors to upgrade existing floor

Mars® 500

High-hard armor
Well balanced solution between workability and weight saving used in military and civil applications.
Tight tolerances (+/-0.2 mm) from very thin thickness 2.5 mm up to medium thickness Excellent flatness and homogeneity, Mars® 500 sheets are delivered with a guaranteed flatness of 3 mm/m and uniformity of mechanical properties throughout the material Specific civil levels (FB5 & FB6), special grade (S) has been developed to meet civil market needs.

Applications 500 HB
Excellent flatness, quiet material (no spring back during cutting) make Mars® 500 a perfect 500 HB solution for all welded constructions, avoiding straightening operations. Tight tolerances permit weight saving, offering the lightest solution for a given level of protection.

  • Light & medium vehicle structures
  • Trucks, cabins, vans structures
  • Kit parts for vehicles in civil application
  • Add-on armor kits
  • Window frames

Mars® 600

Ultra-High-Hard Armor
New metallurgical concept combining 600 HB hardness level with excellent ductility and toughness close to a 500 HB material. Ultra-High-Hard Armor steel with very high ballistic performances and integration possibilities
First multipurpose 600 HB with an impressive ballistic behavior in terms of deformation capacity, resistance to multi-impacts and best in its class workability (mainly bending).

Applications 600 HB
Mars® 600 is the material of the future that is changing designs of military programs: light weight solution and possible use as a structure. Its great properties offer limitless usage possibilities.
Example of Mars® 600 integration

  • Light & medium modern vehicle structures
  • Cold formed parts for light and medium vehicles
  • Solid add-on armor with space
  • Front layer of composite solutions
  • Insert for individual protection

Mars® 650

Ultra-High-Hard Armor
Mars® 650 is an ultra-high-hard (typical 650 HBW) protection steel offering uncompromising ballistic resistance performance, for use as add-on armor when weight reduction is essential. Easy integration in multi materials and composite solutions with its incredible flatness of 3 mm/m.

Perforated Mars® 650

Ultra High-Hard-Armor
Mars® 650 is a ultra-high-hard (typical 650 HBW) protection steel offering uncompromising ballistic resistance performance, for use as add-on armor.
In the perforated version, holes are evenly distributed within the surface to interact with the diameter of the incoming threat. The use of specific perforation process leads to very good flatness, absence of HAZ and low residual stress.

Perforated Mars® 650 is intended to be used as add-on armor at some stand-off distance from platform base armor.
Incoming AP projectiles tends to fracture due to bending stress induced by impacts on holes edges or into the ultra-high hard material in-between. If they are not fractured, projectiles are at least diverted from their incident trajectory which thus drastically reduce their residual penetration capability into base armor.
The holes reduce the areal density of armor plate and also limit possible cracks propagation conferring to Perforated Mars® 650 an exceptional multi-hits capability.
It results to a mass efficiency close the one of ceramic/composites solutions, with a much more better multi-hit capability and easier integration.
Perforated Mars® 650 is also used as ventilation grille (engine, cabin).
Example of Perforated Mars® 650 integration

  • Add-on armor on light and medium vehicles
  • Kit parts or pieces for specific parts of all vehicles
  • Ventilation grilles for all range of vehicles
