Bulletproof Glass vs 60,000 PSI Waterjet Cutter

With 60,000 PSI of waterjet pressure, there isn’t much that will stand up to the blast. On the waterjet channel, you have seen these guys cut into some pretty hefty materials, slicing through them like a hot knife through butter.

Each time, they try to come up with another interesting material that will be fun to split open or something that seems like it might be a little bit stronger than the last thing to face the water jet.

This time, the guys head out to a shooting range to demonstrate some of the bulletproof glass that they will be working with shortly before heading back to the warehouse and putting the waterjet to the test yet again against this super thick glass that is designed to fend off some of the heaviest artillery on the market today.


Now, a bullet might provide some major force but a concentrated stream of water like this seems like it would be able to slice through a little bit more effectively.
