Our 20% NATO Ballistic Gelatin Block is the perfect medium to test a variety of projectiles terminal performance. As its name suggests, this gelatin block is specifically produced to meet NATO’s 20% gel standards for ballistic impact testing, which stops projectiles much sooner than 10% gelatin blocks do. In contrast to other available ballistic gelatins, our gel stays clear through multiple impacts and iterations of melting/reforming. This means that you can use and reuse our blocks multiple times without losing the ability to see a projectile’s impact as well as its temporary and permanent wound cavities. This 20% synthetic gel block is formed into the same dimensions as the blocks used by law enforcement agencies across the country and the world: 16 inches long, by 6 inches tall, by 6 inches wide. Beyond bullets, this block is ideal for testing any type of puncture weapon and yields consistent, realistic results.
Our NATO Ballistic Gelatin matches 20% ballistic gelatin standards. This formula of our synthetic ballistic gelatin is 100% clear, reusable, and requires no refrigeration! Our entire line of NATO synthetic ballistic gelatin follows the same protocol for traditional 10% ballistic gelatin. To pass this protocol a BB must meet the following criteria, which is by shooting a BB at 590 feet per second +/- 10 feet, 10 feet away into a block of gelatin, and the resting position of the BB is 4.2 cm 4.6 cm (4.4 Â± 0.2 cm).
About Our Ballistic Gelatin
Clear Ballistics ballistic gelatin is a modern day ballistic gelatin, is 100% synthetic, and contains no organic materials. It has taken the place of conventional ballistic gelatin, which is 100% organic, and completely temperature unstable. It is 100% clear as glass, odorless, reusable, temperatures stable (temperatures up to 240F), and mimics human tissue 100%. It is non-toxic. Our ballistic gelatin is mold able into any shape. Our ballistic gelatin does not mold or rot. Our ballistic gelatin does not require special storage. Our entire ballistic gelatin process is batch controlled. Clear Ballistics does calibration on the gelatin with each batch, and we following the NATO protocol for ballistics testing developed for ballistic testing of human tissue.
