The technology used to make our stab protection vests and other stab-proof garments is innovative and unique throughout the world. After many years of intensive research, Armadillo Tex have succeeded in manufacturing a textile composite that is safe, light and flexible at the same time. Our under vest weighs only approx. 1.3 kg, for example.
The protective layer is made of a high-strength aramid fabric to which a special plastic is inseparably applied. The high strength fibres and the energy absorbing plastic mean that the specific properties of this composite even exceed those of stainless steel plates.
The weight is approx. 4.5 times lower than for a comparably thick stainless steel plate. We have taken the armadillo as a model to ensure flexibility and breathability. Just like this armoured mammal, we make use of an overlapping scaly structure. However, our scaly structure differs from that of other suppliers in that it is not possible to push it apart. This allows us to achieve a high degree of safety in combination with maximum flexibility.
