A highly crystallized glass candidate armor material known as SITALL has been prepared in plate form suitable for ballistic test and evaluation in complex composite armor systems designed to defeat chemical and kinetic energy threats. Two comparative test formulations of SITALLs were synthesized and characterized as to pertinent chemical and physical properties. The significance of this work is that it indicates the need to further develop crystallized glass formulations which result in crystalline phases which exhibit improved hardness values over those already achieved in these systems.
