“If I were given a choice to use a plate without MITgel or one with MITgel- it is a no- brainer on which one I would pick---lower pressure means that the force is distributed over a nice wide area and my risk of getting a contusion/broken ribs is significantly reduced.”

TESTS AND VALIDATIONS
Moor Innovative Technologies recognizes the relevance of undergoing compliance testing as well as In-house testing of the components of its products. Significantly, we have undertaken ballistic and impact testing in accredited laboratories in the USA. Among others, the tests included: (1) Ballistic Testing;
(2) BPV insert as a Flotation Device (3) Impact Testing (4) Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (5) High Caliber Velocity Testing (6) Test to Failure 30 shot Test using 9mm, 40cal, .45 AP to 44mag.
All of the tests manifest superior ratings in terms of the products’ ability to stop a projectile, diffuse an impact and capability to withstand extreme temperatures. Detailed results of the tests are made available to interested parties when a mutual nondisclosure agreement is signed.
