Military Soft Body Armour – Protecting the Protectors
“Serving those who serve” means equipping military personnel with the original, battle-proven ballistic fibre: DuPont™ Kevlar® for military body armour.
For forty years, service personnel all over the world have depended on body armour and flak jackets made of DuPont™ Kevlar® fibre to help protect them from ballistic projectiles, explosive fragmentation and other combat hazards.
Since Kevlar® fibre is five times stronger than steel on an equal-weight basis, their military body armour offers superior protection, yet is lightweight and comfortable enough to help improve mobility and reduce fatigue in the field. And because Kevlar® fibre is inherently flame-resistant, it also helps to provide thermal protection from blasts and fire.
Threads of DuPont™ Kevlar® and DuPont™ Nomex® protection innovation help connect science, public safety, and consumers alike.
Best known for its use in ballistic and stab-resistant body armor, Kevlar® brand aramid fiber is credited with helping to save thousands of lives. Lightweight and extraordinarily strong, it’s used to make a variety of clothing, accessories, and equipment safer, more cut resistant and durable.
