Body armour can incorporate anti-ballistic materials and anti-stab materials.

Materials are often based on Kevlar and this can sometimes be laminated or bonded into trauma plates.

These materials are flexible but, by design, difficult to cut and are normally incorporated as layers within a garment or within an armoured vehicle.

Assyst Bullmer cutters are capable of cutting many layers of anti-ballistic material thanks to the strong engineering within the cutting head.
