NP524 is based on the ShieldStrand™ S fiberglass reinforcement recently introduced by OCV Technical Fabrics in 2009. 

With properties approaching classic military ballistic composite fiberglass panels; at noticeably lower prices, NP524 is a valuable alternative that can be considered for all newly designed vehicle armor systems. 

Generally, NP524 produced by Norplex-Micarta offers ballistic performance in a more consistent manufactured product than alternatives. 

NP524 complies with stringent Military requirements as a ballistic resistant material.
