DuPont Develops New Kevlar® Variant

Wilmington, Del.-based DuPont has developed a 300-denier Kevlar® fiber variant for use in vests worn by corrections officers. Kevlar Correctional™ fiber technology provides excellent puncture resistance, according to the company, and prevents sharp instruments from passing through the body armor by dissipating energy and restricting the instrument from pulling the Kevlar Correctional fibers apart.

When blended with other Kevlar ballistic materials, the new fiber, which helps vests meet National Institute of Justice standard 0115.00, can also provide threat protection from bullets and handmade weapons.
