TUCSON, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bourque Industries, Inc. (OTC:BORK) today announced that the Company yesterday demonstrated unprecedented ballistic protection from its new Kryron armor and a significant improvement over earlier test results, defeating several .50 caliber armor piercing rounds with a lightweight armor plate designed for personal body armor.
The tests were conducted at the request of an unspecified military agency, at an unspecified military installation, and with unspecified senior military officials in attendance.
Bourque demonstrated increased protection over previous test results for its Kryron Terminator personal ballistic armor line and exceptional multi-impact capability. A Terminator Fat Boy plate was shot multiple times with .50 caliber AP ammunition and .30 caliber AP ammunition, then reversed and shot with the same rounds again, with no penetration, ricochet, shatter or spall.
In addition, a Terminator Thin Line plate sustained several dozen rounds of 9mm machine gun fire at exceptionally close range with no penetration, ricochet, shatter or spall.
All results were achieved with weight savings over the current industry-standard personal protection armor plates.
Bourque also successfully demonstrated proof-of-concept for industry-leading, multi-impact and lightweight armor protection for land-based US military tactical vehicles and US military aircraft.
“This is the most important testing day Bourque Industries has had, as now all doubt about Kryron's capability should finally be laid to rest,” said John M. Bourque, inventor of Kryron and founder of Bourque Industries. “It is clear that Kryron is the best ballistic armor material on the market today, and the clear choice to protect America's warfighters on land, in the air, and on the seas.”
