This video is something of an introduction to ceramic armor. It uses the
suit worn in the most recent Batman movie (The Dark Knight) as a
jumping off point for explaining the production and composition of
ceramic armor plates manufactured by Ceradyne,
one of the leading advanced technical ceramics, for military and police
situations. Besides an overview of the manufacturing process, the video
contains remarkable footage of a soldier picking himself up after being
shot in the chest by a sniper.
