Being 5 times stronger than steel in an equal weight basis, DuPont™ Kevlar® is lightweight, durable, and extraordinary strong. Due to the superiority of its properties, Kevlar® is a pioneer in many applications apart ballistic protection. Exceeding sometimes the outer limits of space, Kevlar® applications include aerospace, automotive, and fiber optics. What sets Kevlar® body armor apart is its performance and proven reliability. Body armor made with Kevlar® is lightweight and comfortable enough to help improve mobility and reduce fatigue, offering superior protection against fragmentation, ballistic, and stab threats. Kevlar® fiber is also inherently flame-resistant, providing thermal protection from blasts and fire.
