Reliable protective solutions for soldiers & logistics
At military missions, potential hazards can arise by e.g. fragments, bullets, spall, as well as heat and flame. Therefore soldiers and task forces are protected by high-performance security equipment. The same counts for their logistics equipment, e.g. military vehicles, helicopters, and patrol boats. Requirements of those security solutions are very special, as parameters like high protection, low weight and maximum flexibility / maneuverability plays a major role. It is essential to select appropriate material.
Teijin Aramid’s high performance materials improve the efficiency of military security equipment. The high-performance para-aramid Twaron® and the ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) Endumax® are used in military solutions, like body armor (e.g. for ballistic vests and helmets) as well as to protect vehicles and other logistical items. Both material provide a high resistance at a low weight. The aramids Twaron® and Teijinconex® additionally offer protection against heat and flame. They are used in military uniforms, as well as e.g. for pilot’s turnout gear.
