Arnhem, The Netherlands, January 31, 2019 – Today, Teijin Aramid, a leading manufacturer of premium aramids and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), announced its participation at Enforce Tac. The international trade show takes place between March 6 and 7 in Nuremberg, Germany. The exhibition will showcase security and tactical solutions for law enforcement applications. At Teijin Aramid’s booth, 12-544, visitors can explore how Twaron and Endumax can add value to soft ballistic and hard ballistic applications for police, justice, frontier defense, duty, military and armed forces.
To protect law enforcement security experts against injuries, advanced turnout gear, such as bullet- or stab-proof vests, body armor, shields and helmets, are essential. Teijin’s para-aramid Twaron and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene Endumax can ensure this equipment offers maximum protection against a range of threats. The high strength, excellent energy absorption and elasticity of the materials provide outstanding ballistic stopping power and protection against sharp objects. Twaron is also inherently heat- and flame-resistant, so it can be used in uniforms for the police and military.
Because of their unrivaled protection-to-weight-ratio, vests made with Endumax insert plates and flexible Twaron fabrics or laminates are designed for comfort and mobility. Furthermore, both are perfectly able to meet the demands of armored vehicles; there is a 30-60% reduction in weight compared with ballistic steel. The result is a well-protected, light, mobile and maneuverable vehicle, right when it matters most.
