Subject: Liquid Armor the New Bulletproof Vest

Liquid Armor the New Bulletproof Vest Armor Holdings Inc. plans to start selling their "liquid armor" next year. The new armor is sprayed onto Kevlar in ultrathin coats. It's a mix of polyethylene glycol, a polymer, and nanobits of silica. Together they produce a "sheer-thickening liquid" that stiffens instantly into a shield when hit hard by an object. It reverts to its liquid state just as fast when the energy from the projectile dissipates.
