Kevlar Armor Panels
Kevlar :50"x41" Vehicle Armor Panels. The big breakthrough in the development of modern ballistic armor was the creation of the aramid fibers called "KEVLAR" Kevlar is the registered trade name used by Du Pont for the aramid fiber. Kevlar was originally marketed for use in strengthening radial tire belts but soon found applications in protective clothing, cables, and protective housings for equipment. Because Kevlar is a flexible fiber, it can be woven into cloth, Such cloth is strong enough to stop high-speed projectiles and -in layers- will stop bullets. Kevlar composites will stop most handgun rounds up to .44 Magum.
