3M Defense Protection Systems utilize advanced materials and unique 3M processing technology to provide an optimal balance of weight, comfort and resistance to a wide range of threats. From head and body protection for soldiers in the field to light weight armor systems for aircraft.
Hollow glass microspheres with a high strength to density ratio. Lightweight but with a strength for processing survival. Potential enhancements high filler loading, reduced warpage/shrinkage, sandability and more.
3M's Specialty Additives, Dynamar PPAs (Polymer Processing Additives), are used at very low levels (200-1000 ppm) and are designed to improve the extrusion processing of polyolefins and other polymers, based on 3M's time-tested formulations and technologies.
