Make your own Shear Thickening Body Armor
Home made D3O recipe for protection against [an enemy]: 150nm SiO2 spheres in ethanol suspension, ethanol prevents clumping. Try moonshine or
everclear, works dandy.
Sonic diffusion can be used to distribute SiO2.
Mix into Polyethylene glycol at a rate of 50/50 (not likely the most ideal configuration, but it will work).
Pour into plaster molds, bake in the oven to get a solid piece of armor. Plaster molds are suggested to be a “body casting” for a nice form
Add 4 layers of Kevlar to make stronger, kevlar 49 is legal, kevlar 29 is illegal and requires a license for such armor.
Still, any variation of this will be better than nothing, [an enemy] could beat you all day and probably won’t leave any bruises with this stuff
Time to be innovative. I can help anybody interested in protecting themselves from violence. Hope this recipe helps.
Nanorods are better than spheres. Straight fumed silica will not work. Potential of silicon carbide nanorods working better. Methanol may
potentially be used in place of ethanol. Other words are moonshine, or everclear. No indication if ethanol was “anhydrous” or not (though
anhydrous probably won’t work some hydration should make dispersion more uniform).
Integration of kevlar 49 is legal, kevlar 29 is not legal. So long as armor isn’t bullet-proof it is still legal in canada.
Defend yourselves, just because the protest is non-violent doesn’t mean [an enemy] won’t come along and bonk you over the head….. so render
their bonk useless. And make it much harder for them to steal your gas mask you have every right to defend yourself against tear gas and pepper
Additionally Kevlar KM2 may be better suited, doing some research into this now.
Suppliers of materials needed and ordering info will be posted soon!
It is difficult to survive with broken bones and need for medical attention! If the SHTF this might make the difference between life and death.

because: to remove constant references to using this against law enforcement (illegal activity is against the T&C)
