Ballistic Protection

Ballistic Protection

Environments from military through to natural disaster require adequate protection. The development of breakthrough technology from our market leading principal has resulted in next generation solutions for high Ballistic and protective performance products. Working closely together with body armor and helmet manufacturers as well as vehicle armorers they have developed innovative customer-oriented ballistic solutions.

The history of body armour is long. But the history of comfortable body armours dates back only a few decades. High performance para-aramid fiber, has excellent energy absorption properties and offers effective and comfortable ballistic solutions with an outstanding cost-performance ratio.

Advanced fibre technology has paved the way for a new family of products such as special anti-fragmentation fabrics, stab resistant fabrics, high tenacity, light weight and impact resistant composite combat helmets and ballistic fabric laminates for vehicle armouring.

Applications

  • Zedtex offer customers recommendations and assistance to develop solutions to meet their needs with Teijin’s para-aramid Twaron® and UHMPE. Endumax® in combination with Nolax adhesives. Fabrics are combined with steel and other materials to reduce weight while protecting against projectiles and fragments. These systems have excellent energy-absorption properties while being light weight. To allow vehicles, boats , aircraft or the soldier to be armored while remaining light and manoeuvrable.

Application

  • We recommend Twaron as an essential component of the modern protective vest. Being lighter and more comfortable, with surfaces that have a uniquely soft textile-like texture and combine maximum protection with freedom of movement, Twaron in soft body armour makes a huge difference to those wearing it.

Application

  • Offering more than twice the protection of steel, composite combat helmets based on Teijin’s para-aramid Twaron® and UHMPE. Endumax® boast exceptionally high tenacity and impact resistance, resulting in ideal protection.Twaron CT, which allows for the production of lightweight, durable, impact-resistant and thermo-neutral shells. A portfolio of fabrics suitable for making protective helmets is available.
