Composite Materials

Our ballistic composite materials for soft and hard armor are manufactured using Honeywell’s proprietary shield technology. Multiple layers of high-performance fiber are laid at right angles to allow the energy of a projectile to rapidly dissipate along the length of the fiber. All composites are designed to provide superior ballistic and fragment protection performance at the lowest possible weight, allowing for maximum comfort and flexibility. Manufacturers of end-use articles can select the right material to meet their desired specification from our extensive portfolio of products.
