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.
DuPont offers solutions that help provide chemical protection for a host of different hazards. See how Tyvek®, Tychem® and Nomex® brands help offer the chemical protection for military and police in situations such as initial entry, victim rescue, release mitigation, evidence collection, body removal, site clean-up, not to mention forensics and scene of crime.
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.
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.
