Endumax® is a thin, ultra-strong tape with a very high modulus and high cut and wear resistance. It is suitable for applications ranging from force transmission, material reinforcement and rope connections to ballistic protection and more.
One of the first applications in which Endumax demonstrated its unique properties was ballistic protection. In part, this was because of Teijin Aramid’s long history and extensive experience in ballistic protection. But it was particularly because of the excellent performance shown by Endumax cross-ply and consolidated plates in dealing with different ballistic threats.
Endumax is also showing its unique qualities by helping disabled people to move their arms. As a thin and ultra-strong tape, it is used to transmit forces in a dynamic arm support that allows people with severely limited arm function to move their hands.
Today’s police and defense forces need to carry more equipment into daily service. This should not mean, however, that they carry more weight. Instead, both body armor and vehicle armor need to be lightweight, highly effective and flexible. Endumax® fits exactly these needs. It is the material of choice for modern protection equipment. When combined with light and flexible anti-ballistic protection products made from Twaron®, Endumax lightweight plates enable ballistic protection gear to meet the highest demands in terms of protection, flexibility and low weight.
High ballistic protection with Endumax
Protective uni-directionals (UDs) and composites, like insert plates, protective panels and helmets made from Endumax, have a very high degree of braking energy, resulting in a particularly high stopping power for bullets and fragments.
