The distribution of energy within an armour system is a fundamental principle. The joining of the hard disruptive outer layer and soft absorbing backing layer is often a source of weakness in armour systems, causing premature failure and thus defeat of the armour. Novel adhesive techniques to join these thin layers together could have a greater impact on the armour performance with minimal additional weight. Doping epoxy with tungsten powder is one such technique that is currently being considered.
