Body armor made with DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber can mean the difference between life and serious injury or death for those in the military, emergency response, and law enforcement.

These heroes in the line of fire never know what to expect when they start their day — what will they be up against, what’s waiting around the corner, will they even make it home? But one thing is certain — when lives are on the line, the right body armor can make all the difference. And when that body armor utilizes DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber, it helps provide excellent performance, superior strength, and extreme flexibility. In fact, statistics show that body armor made with Kevlar® reduces the chance of bodily injury or death caused by physical, ballistic, stab, and slash attacks.

Which is why we continue to innovate, and collaborate with government and law enforcement and manufacturing communities, to help them advance, test, and improve upon the high-performance gear that helps those we count on to remain safe through the fight.
