New product solutions provide the lightest and most flexible ballistic solutions available
WILMINGTON, Del., Oct. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- DuPont (NYSE:DD) officially launched its latest Life Protection portfolio utilizing the CoreMatrix™ Technology at Milipol Paris 2021. CoreMatrix™ is a monolithic fabric structure that can significantly reduce backface trauma, while increasing ballistic and fragmentation performance in body armor for military and law enforcement personnel. The CoreMatrix™ Technology was purchased from TexTech Industries in February 2021.
"The addition of the CoreMatrix™ to the family of DuPont Life Protection solutions enables us to offer a more comprehensive portfolio to meet any and all protection needs for soldiers and law enforcement personnel," said John Richard, vice president, DuPont Safety Solutions. "With the combination of the CoreMatrix™ Technology and current and future fiber technologies we are well positioned to offer the best, most flexible and lightest weight solutions available."
DuPont is delivering the most advanced ballistic protection military, law enforcement and global security officers require for the hazards they face. CoreMatrix™ enables the most flexible, lightweight ballistic solutions to meet enhanced durability standards for body armor including the new National Institute of Justice (NIJ) standards. In addition to enhanced protection, the new technology also increases the comfort of wearing bullet-resistant body armor.
The three new products being introduced at Milipol Paris 2021 are the next generation of the Kevlar® based CoreMatrix™ line designed to improve the comfort and durability of soft body armor for both police and military personnel. Each product has its own performance characteristics to be used in hybrid solutions with other materials to meet the performance needs of the end user.
The needs of today's military, law enforcement and global security professionals require advanced materials to help protect those who protect people worldwide. DuPont is committed to providing the most innovative solutions designed for specific hazards, and this acquisition strengthens an increasingly robust portfolio of technologies to help our customers meet their current and future challenges.
