Quardian is a steel that provides resistance to ballistic impact and explosions. Its advanced protection capabilities are validated by numerous independent and accredited laboratories. Quardian is produced in Belgium by NLMK Clabecq, whose expertise in rolling thin steel plates has been recognized for many years.

Quardian ballistic properties are the result of specific chemistries developed in house, a unique process-rolling and quenching and tempering treatments in ultra hig-performance facilities. The different proposed combinations of hardness and tensile strength ensure any client to find the Quardian adapted to the desired protection.

 The unique layout of the rolling mill, along with the modernity and the technicality of the Quenching & Tempering unit, and the quality of the slabs, all combine to produce steel plates with exceptional thickness tolerances, surface finish and flatness. These characteristics give it the advantage of being easily workable.

To ensure that Quardian is compliant with different international ballistic standards, NLMK Clabecq conducts numerous tests in independant labotories, which are recognised worldwide. The most widely used standards of Quardian steel are (among others:) :

- EN 1522 (LN)

- VPAM (L6 - L9)

- STANAG 4569 AEP-55

- NFA 36800

- MIL-DTL-46100E

- ABNT 15000

Quardian can be used in numerous applications to protect life or valuable goods where it may be threatened by gunshots or explosions: civil vehicles, MRAP (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected), patrol vehicles, protected buildings, shooting stands, ships, frigates, etc.  

For five years, Quardian enjoys a growing evolution; it is present on all continents and can be delivered worldwide.
