Companhia Brasileira de Cartuchos (CBC), a Strategic Defense Company and world leader in ammunition, is launching in the market the new family of Polymatch ammunition, developed in the main calibers of small arms: 9mm, .45Auto, .40S&W, .38SPL, .357Mag and, soon, .380Auto (which is in the process of approval by the competent organ).
Exclusive for training purposes, their projectiles are coated with four layers of special polymer, and are loaded with adequate projectile weight to provide recoil and accuracy similar to operational ammunition.
The polymer coating of the Polymatch projectile provides less heating and friction in the gun barrel when compared to jacketed projectiles, thus extending gun life.
Another differential is the reduction of smoke emission and less lead accumulation in the gun, when compared to ammunition with conventional lead projectiles. Besides offering consumers the reliability of an original factory ammunition and excellent cost-benefit, it enables constant training.
CBC is the largest integrated industrial ammunition manufacturing complex in the world. Its structure also includes the initiator and propellant factory, machine and technology engineering, as well as quality control and ballistics laboratories.
“All products marketed by CBC are submitted to exhaustive tests during development, covering ballistic performance and compliance with international standards, besides having certificates of qualification recognition from the most renowned world bodies. All this structure combined with its international credibility, made CBC reach the level of world leader in ammunition manufacturing, a source of pride for us Brazilians”, says Paulo Ricardo Gomes, Commercial & Marketing Director of CBC.
The pre-launch of the new Polymatch ammunition family took place in July 2022 at the Platinum Partner stores, of the Retailer Relationship Program (PRLO) promoted by Companhia Brasileira de Cartuchos (CBC) and Taurus. These stores have, among other benefits, early access to product launches of CBC and TAURUS brands.
The official launching of the new Polymatch ammunition family to the market took place on July 18, with commercialization in CBC reseller stores all over Brazil.
