10 times stronger than steel in the same weight . The Spectra Shield«
family of composite products began with the development of Shield
technology by Honeywell .
It is about 30% lighter than Kevlar.
Shield technology lays parallel strands of synthetic fiber side by side
and holds them in place with a resin system, creating a unidirectional
tape. Two layers are then cross-plied at right angles (0║/90║) and fused
into a composite structure under heat and pressure. The pre-consolidated
cross-plied material is then packaged as rolls, ready for shipping.
Black Armor combines the Spectra material with Aramid«
and Gold Flex« to shape
and mold according to specific level of protection and product.
is ten times stronger than steel in the same weight !!
has all the ballistic strength of Kevlar however it is more flexible and
about 30% lighter .
