Protection of military personnel:
Several of Luxfer’s Elektron® rolled magnesium alloys qualify as military armour material. Good ballistic performance and low density provide high-level troop protection and fuel conservation while maintaining manoeuvrability critical to the success of armoured vehicles.

Escape equipment:
The latest Luxfer carbon-wrapped cylinder technology has been developed to provide rapid-exhaust lightweight cylinders for inflation of aircraft emergency escape slides.
