Scientists in Poland working on liquid body armor, report says

Scientists in Poland are working on body armor technology that uses specially-designed liquid to protect against bullets, according to Reuters.

Unlike Newtonian liquids such as water, the Shear-Thickening Fluid (STF) hardens on impact from a projectile, the report says, offering protection from bullets.

The technology has already been touted as a potential replacement for Kevlar in body armor.

Reuters says that the exact composition of the fluid is known only to Poland's Institute of Security Technologies, known as Moratex, and inventors at the Military Institute of Armament Technology in Warsaw.
