Bomb Suit Tests show advanced materials offer More Protection and Greater Flexibility

The suit uses a range of advanced polymers to enable the necessary blast protection, while allowing a wide range of mobility. The skin of the suit is made from Nomex, a flame-resistant meta-aramid material commonly used by bomb disposal experts and firefighters due to its blast and fire protection properties, and lightweight flexible construction.

The tests show the suit performed well against four life impacting aspects of a blast; flame immersion, high velocity fragment impact, blast pressure waves and ‘tertiary’ effects. Critical to survivability is reducing the impact of blast pressure waves, which alongside flames and fragments, have a devastating impact on internal organs. Read more
