What makes our product less than perfect? When we say less than perfect, we are only speaking visually and not physically. Clear Ballistics manufactures excellent products, and even the best makes mistakes. What we mean in nonprofessional terms possibly has amber tones. Amber tones are created when the product is heated too hot, too hot too fast, or cooked too long. The color is very light, in the amber or dark yellow family. The product is still 100% clear but slightly colored. What we mean in nonprofessional terms possibly has small debris or fragments less than 1 millimeter. During manufacturing pieces of foreign matter get into the gelatin during cooking, pieces of burned gelatin, or any other small debris in the gelatin. The ballistic gelatin is still 100% calibrated to meet the FBI standards for testing human tissues
Joe Fit is the next generation of ballistic testing dummies. Joe Fit is the first-ever commercially available ballistic testing dummy that is reusable. Joe Fit is made of our industry leading synthetic ballistic gelatin and meets the FBI protocol for calibrating ballistic gelatin to match human tissue. The design of Joe Fit matches an athletic male in great physical condition.
Joe Fit is perfect for all types of testing with any ammunition, weapons, personal armor, shields, or any other protection equipment. Joe Fit will also allow you to test all types of shrapnel penetrations. This torso will give you the insight to ballistic data that you could never achieve from standard ballistic gelatin due to its physical limitations. Not only will you be able to gain standard terminal ballistics data, you can now get penetrating and non-penetrating ballistic data from the same device at the same time. After preforming all your tests, you can take Joe Fit back to the lab and really analyze all of his wounds, which is impossible with traditional gelatin. Joe Fit is three dimensional on the front and both sides, and his back is completely flat. Joe Fit sits vertical or lies horizontal for all types of testing. Joe Fit measures from top to bottom 20 inches in height, 9 inches front to back, and his shoulders are the widest part of his body measuring 18 inches wide from the outer most edges. He has a rectangular base near his hips that measures 9 inches from front to back by 4 inches in height by 11 inches in from hip to hip. He weighs 60 pounds. Joes sides contour to the familiar V-shape of an athlete. Joes arms are just long enough to provide as placeholders for all types of tactical vest but not too long to be cumbersome to get equipment on and off quickly. Joes neck is two inches in height to help anchor all equipment at the top.
About Our Ballistics 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 moldable 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 FBI protocol for ballistics testing developed for ballistic testing of human tissue.
