ArmorCore is our line of UL Listed Bullet Resistant Fiberglass Panels. Armorcore is manufactured and sold worldwide direct from the Heart of Texas daily. Waco Composites has focused exclusively on this product line during the last decade and has become a leading manufacturer in the security industry. ArmorCore panels combine woven-roving fiberglass with resin and are cured in a press with heat and pressure. These panels encapture the ballistic projectiles in a process called ply-delamination. This process defeats the projectiles without ricocheting or spalling. This design makes ArmorCore one of the safest, most inexpensive, and easy to work with ballistic protection solutions available. ArmorCore is used primarily in wall systems, furniture and doors, and vehicle armor.
