SB71 Ballistic Material

dsmdyneema_10036715.png

DSM Dyneema announced an innovative light weight ballistic material for use in law enforcement and military protective vests. High performance Dyneema SB71, a unidirectional (UD) grade made of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber from DSM Dyneema, was specifically designed and developed for use in ballistic vests certified under NIJ0101.06. Vests made with SB71 combine lowest possible weight with the highest protection performance. The new material advances the protection level achievable with Soft Ballistic (SB) armor by building on a new technology platform first established with Dyneema SB51 from DSM Dyneema in 2010.

SB71 facilitates protective concepts for the lightest, most comfortable and most demanding vest applications in the range of UD grades available from DSM Dyneema. It is suited for vest designs that meet the NIJ06 standard as well as other law enforcement and military standards,

Dyneema SB71 can also be combined with trauma liners and stab resistance solutions in vests designed to meet various international standards. Furthermore, it can be used both in tactical and concealed vest designs. It also enables vests to be designed with low Back Face Signature while remaining thin, light and comfortable.

The SB71 UD grade further expands DSM Dyneema’s already strong portfolio of products based on Dyneema, the world’s strongest fiber, and builds on the success already achieved in this market with its UD grades SB51, SB31 and SB21.

SB71, which can be used to design vests meeting NIJ06 specification, has been developed in close cooperation with body armor manufacturers. 

The new grade has high durability and resistance to moisture, UV rays and chemicals, characteristics inherent to UHMWPE fiber from DSM Dyneema. Moreover, vests can be easily upgraded to protect against heavier ri?e ?re using class-leading inserts made with Dyneema.

During development, the material was extensively tested by several global customers and end-users against a wide range of threats and environmental conditions and passed all stringent tests, outperforming other materials. 

SB71 has demonstrated that it meets the strictest requirements for ballistic protection. A key benefit is its low weight, which provides the wearer with maximum comfort, without making concessions in terms of wearer safety.

SB71, a new and innovative ballistic material from DSM Dyneema, is a uni-directional (UD) grade made of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber which demonstrates improved performance. This ultimately is reflected in a lower weight protection system that meets current requirements in North America and Germany.

Ballistic Underwear

Product From U.S. ARMOR CORP.

U.S. Armor revealed their new Ballistic Underwear at SHOT Show 2014, a product designed to offer ballistic protection for the femoral artery and groin. The product protects the law officer or military personnel from a fatal gunshot to the femoral artery; an area previously unprotected by other body armor items worn in the field. Although an officer’s quality of life would go down dramatically after a gunshot wound to the groin region, an injury to the femoral region is a life-threatening situation. If an EMT or Doctor is not immediately present to treat a severe injury to the femoral artery, the life expectancy of the injured officer is extremely low. A high percentage of officers injured in this way would bleed to death before showing up at a nearby hospital. With the new Ballistic Underwear product, officers can now comfortably be protected in this vital area from fatal threats that they face every day.
