&129 are tough yarns
which are better suited for ballistic protection and are used both in soft
body armor applications such as personal protection ballistic vests, and as
robust reinforcements for a variety of hard armor applications, racing
helmets, ballistic helmets, spall panels, ballistic blankets and electronic
housing protection. This Style Kevlar has also been used in many
industrial type applications.
Kevlar ® KM2, made in 400 denier, 600
denier and 850 denier, is a high performance product variant specially
designed for use in Military ballistic applications. These yarns are used in
both soft and hard military products to defeat multiple threats.
Kevlar® LT is a new yarn that’s used in
the development of the lightest weight body armor products on the market
today. This new yarn is mainly used in the civilian police products to
provide comfortable, high level protection.
Kevlar® K-159 was developed for correctional
institutions as the first stab resistant fabric. This new Kevlar® fiber, which is
4 times thinner than typical ballistic yarns, is used for an ultra-dense weave
but still maintains a strength value that is five times stronger than steel on
an equal weight basis.
1000, 2040 are high performance para-aramid fibers
supplied by Teijin Aramid®. In the last 15 years of Twaron® being in the
marketplace, many improvements in properties have been made.
Developments of finer filaments, uniquely combined with higher tensile
properties, resulted in the patented Twaron® Microfilament and have led to
the newest types of Twaron® yarns exceptionally well adapted to the
specific demands of hard and soft ballistic applications.
