If you have not heard of Dyneema body armor, or you are looking for more information on the same, here you are...

Protection from most firearms

To get protection from a wide range of firearms, you need to have body armor that is real hard. Though it is true that even body armor that is soft is very capable of protecting you, it is the armor plates that are of the harder type, that are really very effective against rounds that are armor-piercing and they are also effective when high-powered rifles are used.

So, to make armor of this kind, a kind of material is used that goes by the name of Dyneema. This material is made in Netherlands and it can go to the extent of taking a 240kg load. Plus, as it has a very high absorption characteristic trait, it can even float on water.

The result is body armor that is just fantastic

With the use of this Dyneema material, it is now possible to manufacture vests that meet the standard body armor requirements, the likes of which have been laid down by the National Institute of Justice.

Plus, clients who buy this kind of armor are assured that they are getting armor protection that is durable as well as comfortable. And another strong point is that you must not worry about the quality of Dyneema as it has a functional guarantee of 10 years and also, water or UV light does not affect it.

Armor of metal

Though armor made from soft metal is also effective, most people who choose armor prefer to buy the kind that is made from hard metal and as such body armor is available in ceramic as well a metal. But which is the one that will meet your need, ceramic, metal or...

Hard Armor Plates that are made from Dyneema! This body armor is the lightest that is available between metal and ceramic armor. In fact they are as much as 2 pounds lighter than the other two.

A very warm welcome

Dyneema armor for the body is a big relief and a tremendous improvement for anyone who needs to wear a vest for protection, over an extended period of time. Dyneema body armour can offer protection against the following: .223 Remington, 5.56mm FMJ round, .30 carbines, .62mm FMJ and even grenade shrapnel as their level of ballistic rating is III.
