Honeywell's Spectra Shield 6472 is specifically designed to meet stringent military protection requirements globally. Spectra Shield 6472 is the first product in the Spectra Shield 6000 series, which continues Honeywell’s legacy in providing the highest performing ballistic materials for protective gear.

Honeywell’s Spectra Shield series has been widely adopted and proven for the most advanced armor applications globally, from bullet-resistant vests, breast plates, and helmets, to combat vehicles and military aircraft where lightweight solutions and performance are critical. Honeywell’s Shield technology includes applications to meet military requirements for helmets that are lighter in weight but able to protect against a range of threats.

Honeywell’s Shield technology is also capable of combining a variety of aramid fibers and resins to meet specific performance requirements in soft and hard armor applications. Pound for pound, Spectra is 15 times stronger than steel, yet light enough to float. It has up to 60% greater strength than alternate aramid fiber. Spectra fiber is made from ultra-high molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) using a patented gel-spinning process.
