Video Details

Is fiberglass bullet proof? Can it be made bullet proof? Can it be used to increase the "bullet resistance" of other materials? That's what we'll be exploring with this video.

In this video I'll be covering a variety of topics including AR500 steel, bullet proof or bullet resistant materials, the history of bullet resistant materials and even a shout out to ZNAproductions for his excellent video on making a bullet resistant fiberglass plate
