SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SINTX Technologies, Inc.

SINTX Armor is a 10,000 square-foot facility that can manufacture high-performance ceramic armor plates for personnel, aircraft, and vehicles. Products include 100% boron carbide (BoroShockTM), which is a high-strength material designed to protect special forces against high-velocity projectiles. Another product, DuraShockTM, is a composite of boron carbide and silicon carbide that is designed to protect law enforcement personnel.
SINTX’s BoroShockTM and DuraShockTM are advanced material technologies that combine light weight with resistance to projectiles. These features are desired in modern armor systems that must balance high levels of protection against user comfort and mobility. Ceramic armor products are in demand by defense and law enforcement departments worldwide, especially since such products have a finite shelf life, and as newer technologies offer advantages over previous versions.
“SINTX Armor reiterates our commitment toward meeting the global demand for protective ceramic armor,” said Dr. Sonny Bal, CEO of SINTX. “Our expertise in advanced ceramics has positioned us as a leader and innovator in the protective armor industry well into the future.”
After the purchase of B4C LLC and a technology collaboration with Precision Ceramics USA in 2021, SINTX Armor was established as a subsidiary of SINTX Technologies. Since then, SINTX Armor has encountered strong interest and received requests from many customers to evaluate its products. SINTX Armor expects a robust order book in the first half of 2023 and looks forward to participating in the global ceramic armor market – which is projected to reach USD $3.5 billion 2027.
