Uses and Applications
As a superior material for ballistic military and police helmets, DuPont™ Kevlar® fibre has helped to save thousands of lives around the world.
Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) suits are designed using inherent flame-resistant inner and outer layers made of Nomex® fibre and flexible, semi-rigid and rigid ballistic protective elements made of Kevlar® fibre. The suits are tailored for protection and mobility, dexterity and comfort for each body part.
As leader in flame-resistant protection technology, DuPont helps protect industrial workers, firefighters, police officers and military forces against fire hazards.
For 40 years, armed forces personnel have relied on military body armour and flak jackets made of DuPont™ Kevlar® fibre to help protect them from combat hazards.
