New Kevlar fiber technology to hit the LE market

Increasing resistance to bullets: Vests with new technology are for law enforcement; military applications are being developed.

RICHMOND, Va. — New Kevlar technology will allow the production of body armor with better bullet-stopping power at a lighter weight, DuPont said yesterday.

The company said a new woven fabric technology, coupled with a new coating process, improves the ballistic performance of its existing Kevlar aramid fiber.

The company's Spruance plant in Chesterfield County, which manufactures Kevlar fiber, will be among the plants that supply Kevlar for the finished product, a company official said.
