  • Known worldwide as standard ballistic clay, Roma Plastilina No1 is a homogenous non hardening, oil based modelling clay and is the designated backing material for the testing of ballistic vests to both NIJ & HOSDB standards. The ballistic clay comes in a case of 20 bricks. Each brick measuring 140mmX 63.5mm X 76mm and weighing 2-lbs or 907grammes. Color is gray-green.

    The NIJ, HOSDB, SK, ISO and other testing standards from around the world involve firing different types of bullets ranging from 9 mm to .44 Magnums and up to caliber 12/70 shotgun slugs, at body armor placed in front of a tray of ballistic clay, a material that emulates the human body.

    Typically these standard tests require vest designs to stop multiple shots at a certain velocity, and the clay must have less than a specified residual cavity depth commonly referred to as “back face signature deformation”. For example, the NIJ specification requires six shots with less than 44 millimeters of "back face signature deformation".

    Roma Plastilina No 1 Balistic Clay offers all of these advatages:

    • Military specified along with specifications of other testing around the world 
      This is the world stand testing material for all ballistic testing

    • Stable at room temperature.
      Unlike gellatin, water-soaked materials, or water-based clay, Roman Plastilina No 1 Balistic Clay remains the consistency of animal muscle tissue without refrigeration.

    • Ready to use without mixing.
      Roman Plastilina No 1 Balistic Clay does not require mixing, so it maintains the same consistent density from test to test.

    • No refrigeration required.
      Roman Plastilina No 1 Balistic Clay can be used without refrigeration, unlike water-based gels which spoil or need to be refrigerated to consistent temperature to maintain their density from shot to shot. The testing can be done in the field.

    • Re-usable, re-castable.
      Roman Plastilina No 1 Balistic Clay  can easily be melted and re-cast. It quickly sets up for another shot.

    • Closest simulation of actual tissue.
      Roman Plastilina No 1 Balistic Clay  is an excellent match to the density and elasticity of live animal muscle tissue, providing a superior simulation for bullet testing and forensics.

    Roman Plastilina No 1 Balistic Clay is  non-toxic, has a very low incidence of reaction, and has no known health hazards associated with handling or use. It has a faint odor similar to wax. If bullet fragments contaminate the material, it can be cleaned by melting and filtering
