This issue of HighTech Materials TOE profiles non-oxide ceramics for bulletproofing applications. Non-oxide ceramics, which includes carbides, silicides, nitrides, and borides, are being widely adopted for bulletproofing applications. These materials are lightweight, hard, corrosion and wear resistant, and have low thermal expansion in comparison to alumina and steal armor. High research funding from governments toward strengthening their defense assets drives innovations in bulletproof non-oxide ceramics. Future technology developments include low-cost manufacturing techniques, developing 3D printed materials, and lightweight ceramics.

The High-Tech Materials TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on various materials across industries. Some material technologies include lightweight materials, bio-based materials, ceramics, smart materials, fibers, nanomaterials, responsive materials, polymers, woven and non woven materials, polymers and plastics and packaging materials.

The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.
