About Kevlar

Kevlar is a heat-resistant and strong synthetic fiber commonly used in safety equipment, for personal protection. For instance, it is used in the protective jackets of fencing sport. Because of its high tensile strength-to-weight ratio, Kevlar has many applications, ranging from bicycle tires and racing sails to bulletproof vests. Kevlar is around five times stronger than Steel. However, PPSS Group’s next generation of high-performance body armour is made from Auxilam™, a unique carbon fiber composite material.

The company says their fabric is highly durable and offers 5 times the resistance of fabrics made from Kevlar. Polycarbonate-based stab resistant vests have in fact become popular among homeland security agencies in countries around the world. Like the messages mention, Knife violence has become common in Europe and other places and variety of weapons appear on the streets. So, spike protection has also become important to private security professionals.

CEO of PPSS Group, Robert Kaiser explained their safety fabrics protect especially key arteries and blood vessels, effectively preventing lacerations, cuts and subsequent rapid blood loss, shock and ultimately loss of valuable life. The company offers different types of slash/stab resistant fabric and body armour clothing in the form of arm guards, shirts, hoodies, jackets, long johns and balaclavas.
