First Armour at SOFEX Jordan showcases Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology from DSM Dyneema


The Netherlands, 9 May 2016 - DSM Dyneema today announced that company First Armour, an affiliate of the KADDB Investment Group (KIG), is showcasing at SOFEX Jordan 2016 exhibition the lightest available insert. This panel, to be worn in combination with a protective vest, was tested according to NIJ Standard-0101.04 Level III and 7.62x39 MSC, featuring Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology. The new DP3/3+/L insert, weighing less than one kilo, sharply decreases the load carried by operational units while maintaining a high level of ballistic protection. Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology is a radical innovation based on Dyneema®, the leading brand of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber. It enables customers to create very light armor solutions. The protective insert is manufactured by First Armour in Jordan, for high-end use in law enforcement and embassy guards in the region.

"Reducing the weight, and thickness of protective equipment is a key objective for military and law enforcement personnel in Jordan and around the globe," said Muneer Al Assi, General Manager of First Armour. "Our productive, ongoing collaboration with DSM Dyneema and the exceptional properties of Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology enabled us to design this new ultra-lightweight protective insert. With this insert, the officer can enhance endurance, speed, comfort and freedom of movement. We are pleased to offer a state-of-the-art ballistic protection solution to the region."

First Armour will soon start offering various types of body armor based on different high-performance grades of Dyneema®.

"We congratulate First Armour on its innovative ballistic protective insert, which combines dramatic weight reduction with highly demanding protection requirements," said Marcio Manique, Global Business Director, Life Protection, DSM Dyneema. "DSM Dyneema takes pride in supporting our customers with the most advanced materials, expertise and services as they break new ground in lightweight life protection equipment."

First Armour's new insert is made with Dyneema® grade HB212, a UHMWPE fiber-based composite laminate for low weight hard armor applications that are created using Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology. The award-winning technology eliminates the traditional compromise between higher protection and lower weight. Products made with Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology are excellent for developing soft and hard ballistic protection applications such as vests, inserts and helmets. Depending on the threat level, Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology can reduce the weight of body armor by up to 30 percent without sacrificing ballistic protection, while enhancing comfort and agility with fewer layers of material and increased flexibility.
