The two commonly used materials are Kevlar® and Spectra.
Kevlar is the registered trademark for a para-aramid synthetic fiber related to other aramids like Nomex and Technora. Developed at Dupont in 1965, this high-strength material was first commercially used in the early 1970s to replace steel in racing tires. Typically it is spun into ropes or fabric sheets that can be used as such or as an ingredient in composite material components.

Spectra-based or Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) fabric is made by laying the fibers parallel to one another and then bonding them together with resin. UHMWPE is a very tough material with the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic presently made. It is highly resistant to corrosive chemicals except for oxidizing acids. It has extremely low moisture absorption and a very low coefficient of friction. It is self-lubricating and is highly resistant to abrasion, in some forms being 15 times more resistant to abrasion than carbon steel. Its coefficient of friction is significantly lower than that of nylon and acetal and is comparable to that of polytetrafluoroethylene (Teflon), but UHMWPE has better abrasion resistance than PTFE. It is completely odorless, tasteless, and non-toxic.

We offer a six-year warranty on the ballistic integrity of all our body armor. However, research has shown that our products continue to provide the same level of protection for much longer than six years, providing they are appropriately cared for and maintained.

No. Bulletproof vests have different levels of protection based on their respective manufacturing processes. The ratings of bulletproof vests are I, II-A, II, III-A, III, and IV. It is also important to remember that the higher the rating, the heavier the vest.

Yes. Our factory conducts firing tests on all available production designs. All of our vests are further tested at an NIJ-certified laboratory in the United States.

Soft armor is lightweight and flexible and is the armor used in concealable bulletproof vests. At NIJ level IIIA, the panel will stop handgun rounds to those fired from a .44 Magnum. Hard armor has a higher level of protection and is normally used by military forces, private contractors, and police. They utilize solid plates (inserted into the vest in the front, the sides, and the back) that are heavier than soft armor panels.

It depends on the threats you expect to encounter. An NIJ Level II vest is designed to protect you from smaller handgun calibers, while NIJ Level IIIA armor will protect you from a .44 mm Magnum round. When used with an NIJ Level III or Level IV hard armor plate, an NIJ Level IIIA vest will protect against rifle rounds. When choosing your vest, it is better to choose the vest that matches your potential threats because higher-level vests thicker and heavier will constrain your movement.
