Finally, I have been waiting to hear more about this, for three years. My partners and I had originally contacted Ap-Nano to get additional information three years ago, and to inquire about taking a possible minority stake in their company (venture capital). They did not need it, but we kept tabs on the technology.

Now, I am seeing some amazing movement:

When I say it can stop bullets, it can, BIG ones.

A year ago IsraCast reported on the development of the first commercial nano-based lubricant which was developed by the Israeli company ApNano materials. A year later we find ApNano working also on a wholly different application of their technology - shielding and protection. In recent research lead by Prof. Yan Qiu Zhu of the School of Mechanical, Materials and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of Nottingham, England, a sample of the ApNano material was subjected to severe shocks generated by a steel projectile traveling at velocities of up to 1.5 km/second. The material withstood the shock pressures generated by the impacts of up to 250 tons per square centimeter. This is approximately equivalent to dropping four diesel locomotives onto an area the size of ones fingernail. During the test the material proved to be so strong that after the impact the samples remained essentially identical compared to the original material. Additionally, a recent study by Prof. J. M. Martin from Ecole Centrale de Lyon in France tested the new material under isostatic pressure and found it to be stable up to at least 350 tons/cm2.

ApNano launches Nano Armor subsidiary for amazing Bullet-Proof products
http://www.army-guide.com/eng/article/article.php?forumID=864

The Nano Armor products will be made of tungsten disulfide (WS2) nanoparticles and enable it to produce over 50% lighter weight armor products. The material was subjected to severe shocks generated by firing shots at it at impact velocities of up to 1.5 km/second. The nanospheres withstood the shock pressures generated by the impacts of up to 250 tons per square centimeter. The unique nanotubes of ApNano Materials are up to 4-5 times stronger than steel and about 6 times stronger than Kevlar.

1) how much does it WEIGH

2) Make some armor plates out of it and see if it makes NIJ Level IV....

The coatings sound good too...like BCG...hm...

Its a lot more powerful then what they are saying publicly (phone, email, internet) without a prior signed NCND & LOI.

LOL. A LOT more powerful.

If you think the Israeli's can kick hiney now, wait until they start to roll this technology out...
