Ballistically tolerant fuel tanks


GKN Aerospace’s world leading material developments offer the fastest seal capability currently available in line with latest military requirements; from 7.62mm to 20mm round protection to all types of fuel containment devices.

Ballistically tolerant (or self sealing) capability can be integrated at the design phase of a vehicle or retro-fitted for most types of configurations. It can be externally fitted to ensure optimised availability of fuel during operations and situations under enemy fire.

In addition, or in its own right, we offer additional enhancements with explosive suppressant (all variants) and anti slosh - all improving platform (air/sea/land) survivability.
