Kevlar® XP™ for Soft Armor — Comfort and Protection
The job of keeping the public safe requires a combination of high-level protection and high-level comfort. It’s why DuPont developed the next-generation of patented fabric technology used in Kevlar® XP™ technology for Soft Body Armor.
Situations can change drastically in just a matter of seconds. Law enforcement officers need to react on instinct. That’s why we’ve made a combination of comfort and protection a priority. Kevlar® XP™ technology for Soft Body Armor features a patented woven fabric technology that helps enable vests to weigh at least 10% less than those made with other commercially available technologies, while still being made of Kevlar® material.
Kevlar® XP™ technology for Soft Body Armor helps offer more bullet-stopping power. This patented technology helps provides approximately a 15% reduction in back face deformation and superior ballistic performance in a 100% Kevlar® solution. Kevlar® XP™ for Soft Body Armor technology helps manufacturers provide more comfortable vest designs with at least a 10% reduction in overall weight, helping to give officers the freedom of movement they need to protect themselves, their partners, and the public.
DuPont Protection Technologies today announced that over one million bullet-resistant vests made with DuPont™ Kevlar® XP™ have been sold globally since the advanced material was launched at Eurosatory in 2008.
