UL 752 Industry Standards
Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., the world’s oldest and largest, not for profit, independent testing company, wrote the standard for bullet resistant materials. The UL752 standard has been widely accepted throughout the world as the standard for architectural bullet resistive building materials.
ArmorCore® has been tested according to that standard by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.
A ballistic resistive product becomes “UL Listed” after being subjected to a variety of ballistic tests which include shooting the materials while frozen at -25 degrees Fahrenheit and while heated to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. After the initial testing series, the product is then set up for maintenance testing that involves “pulling random samples” without notice from the manufacturer’s routine production on a quarterly rotation. This rigorous testing schedule ensures that the product is being made without variation and has the highest level of ballistic resistive integrity available.
ArmorCore® bullet resistant panels are available in thicknesses to meet all eight UL 752 standards, providing you with a tested and proven solution for any ballistic protection requirement.
State-Of-The-Art In House Testing
Ensuring the ballistic resistive integrity of ArmorCore® bullet-resistant fiberglass panels is a critical aspect of our operation, and why we have developed state-of-the-art in-house testing facilities and procedures.
Within our Waco, Texas manufacturing facility, we routinely perform live round bullet-resistant tests on panels – both as part of our on-going new product development and to provide certainty that the ArmorCore® bullet resistant materials we sell consistently meet the required U.L. 752 and N.I.J. 0108.01 standards.
Within the Waco Composites lab, we have the ability to safely test rounds from .22 caliber to high-speed 7.62 mm and above.
Exceptional in-house testing is one more aspect of the innovation and standard of excellence that has made ArmorCore® the solution of choice for ballistic panel protection.
Documentation and attention to detail are part of our company culture and are central aspects of the Waco Composites Quality Assurance Program. We know the importance our customers put on demonstrated commitment to quality, and for this reason, Waco Composites is an ISO 9001:2015 registered company.
