Kevlar Armor Panels

Kevlar Armor PanelsA considerable breakthrough in the development of modern ballistic armor was the creation of the aramid fibers called “KEVLAR”. Kevlar is the registered trade name used by DuPont for the aramid fiber. Kevlar was originally marketed for use in strengthening radial tire belts but soon found applications in protective clothing, cables, and protective housings for equipment. Because Kevlar is a flexible fiber, it can be woven into cloth. Such cloth is strong enough to stop high-speed projectiles and, in layers, will stop bullets. Available in sheet sizes of: 50″x41″, 50″x48″, 50″x72″ and 50″x96″.

Kevlar is five times stronger than steel and ten times stronger than aluminum, and does not burn or melt. By using Kevlar in conjunction with resins like those used to make fiberglass, it’s possible to mold Kevlar in “composite” materials or armor. These composites find use in ballistic helmets and lightweight vehicle armor, as well as bank counters, safe rooms, and guard stations. Kevlar is also used in making bullet resistant vests. Kevlar composites will stop most handgun rounds up to .44 Magnum. Please Note: Kevlar will not stop rifle rounds. Please see our Dyneema or Spectra Shield Armor Panels for assault rifle protection.

Our Kevlar Armor Panels can be installed in a vehicle using glue, rivets, screws, or nuts and bolts with washers. We can also water jet cut these armor panels to your exact specifications, please contact us for more information.
We can also manufacturer custom lay ups to your specifications
