As one of the most vulnerable parts of the human body, the head requires the most effective ballistic protection available. For thousands of years, metal materials were the best option. But today, thanks to Teijin Aramid’s state-of-the-art solutions, armies and police forces can be significantly better protected against fragments and bullets – even those fired from submachine guns – while experiencing increased comfort.

More than twice the protection of steel

Twaron CT-based composite helmets boast exceptionally high tenacity and impact resistance, resulting in ideal protection for forces facing threats of violence. In fact, they offer more than twice the protection of steel combat helmets. This is mainly attributable to the use of Twaron CT, which allows for the production of lightweight, durable, impact-resistant and thermo-neutral shells. Teijin Aramid offers a portfolio of fabrics that are suitable for making protective helmets. Our dedicated experts will be happy to advise you on the best solution for your specific challenge.

Our recommendations for protective helmets are based on following fabric constructions:

  • CT736
  • CT737
  • CT747
  • T750

Recycling helmets

All aramid helmets are recyclable, and can be reprocessed into other high-performance products. We do buy back these aramid helmets, and demilitarization of the recycled material is guaranteed. Read more about our recycling and buy back activities.
