Ballistic materials with lightweight laminate film structure offer greater comfort and multi-threat resistance

Du Pont Engineering Polymers : 24 November, 2013  (New Product)
DuPont Protection Technologies, displayed two new products for body armour protection at Milipol Paris, 19-22 November 2013.
DuPont Kevlar AS450X is engineered for greater comfort to the ballistic vest wearer. Developed for anti-stab, anti-spike and combined ballistic protection in armour applications, it provides the ability to manufacture products that offer significant mobility and driving comfort, particularly when donned in patrol vehicles. The lightweight laminate film structure helps enhance flexibility and can cover a greater surface area.
 
DuPont focused on the variety of risks law enforcement officers face at all times, including handgun (15%), knife (35%) and blunt trauma (50%), as well as difficult climate conditions. 
 
Also being launched at Milipol is DuPont Kevlar XP S104 fabric. It offers enhanced bullet stopping power and reduced back face deformation. The material offers strong ballistic performance and comfort even in wet conditions, so is ideal when working in tropical climates or when stringent wet performance is required.
