Kevlar® XP™ for Hard Armor technology — All the protection without all the weight.
Kevlar® XP™ for Hard Armor technology helps prove that a lighter-weight helmet can still offer heavy protection. A critical reason to have Kevlar® fiber in your “kit”.
DuPont is constantly innovating to help manufacturers provide our military personnel with lighter, stronger, and safer products. Kevlar® XP™ for Hard Armor technology helps manufacturers provide a lighter-weight helmet in a 100% DuPont™ Kevlar® solution. Made from a high-toughness resin combined with Kevlar® KM2® Plus fiber, Kevlar® XP™ for Hard Armor technology helps manufacturers allow for a 20% decrease in helmet weight, while maintaining the same performance as the current Advanced Combat Helmet. Kevlar® XP™ for Hard Armor technology can also be used to help design helmets that provide up to a 20% increase in performance at an equivalent weight.
Kevlar® XP™ for Hard Armor technology also helps provide:
• Minimal back face deformation
• Fewer layers and reduced stitching requirements
• Patented woven fabric
DuPont Kevlar® XP™ for Hard Armor technology helps manufacturers provide protection for our warfighters by incorporating excellent ballistic and non-ballistic protection to help lower the risk of blunt force trauma. One more critical reason to have gear made with Kevlar® fiber in your “kit”.
