Ballistic Military and Police Helmets Get the Kevlar® Treatment
Bullets, shrapnel, and explosions are a constant threat to combat personnel. Ballistic helmets made of DuPont™ Kevlar® fibre have helped save thousands of military and police lives from a wide range of threats.
Ballistic helmets made of DuPont™ Kevlar® fibre help protect the wearer against a wide range of threats, including submachine-gun bullets and fragments.
As rigorous impact testing shows, ballistic helmets made of Kevlar® fibre have superior structural integrity that can help enhance survivability in ballistic and non-ballistic impact. And because ballistic helmets made of Kevlar® are lightweight, they can also help improve mobility and reduce fatigue, leaving the wearers more energy to complete their mission.
DuPont™ Kevlar® Prepreg HPP - Efficient ballistic protection
Combining the ballistic properties of DuPont™ Kevlar® aramid fibre with phenolic resin, Kevlar® Prepreg HPP is a high performance material for helmet applications, helping manufacturers offer ballistic protection in tough of environments. With additional manufacturing benefits such as minimal wastage and enhanced productivity, Kevlar® HPP is a very efficient and cost-effective solution.
Kevlar® XP™ H170 for Helmets
Kevlar® XP™ H170 for helmets is a patented woven fabric that can help manufacturers reduce helmet weight by one-fifth while maintaining the same performance. Alternatively, it can help provide up to 20 percent increase in performance using the same level of material.
