At Milipol 2011 in Paris, DSM will introduce Dyneema SB71, a new innovative light weight ballistic material for use in Law Enforcement and Military protective vests. High performance SB71, a unidirectional (UD) grade made of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber from DSM Dyneema, was specifically developed to design NIJ 06 compliant body armor.
Vests based on SB71 combine lowest possible weight with highest protection performance, comfort and reliability. The new material advances the protection level achievable with Soft Ballistic (SB) armor by building on a new technology platform first established by SB51 in 2010. Our Team would be delighted to introduce the new material to you and highlight the benefits that SB71 is able to deliver to your business and the benefits that certified vests based on this new material are bringing to its end-users.
