Protective Products International Receives Approval from NIJ for Standard-0101.06 Body Armor

June 05, 2009  | 

Protective Products International (PPI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Protective Products of America Inc. and a manufacturer and distributor of advanced ballistic protective products is one of the first companies to receive compliance status approval for one of its ballistic vests under the the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Standard-0101.06

As of May 29th 2009, PPI’s model DX-IIA was found by the NIJ’s Voluntary Body Armor Compliance Testing Program to satisfy the requirements of the new NIJ Standard–0101.06 for level IIA protection. The company's level II and IIIA models for this series have successively completed certification testing and are waiting administrative approval from NIJ.

PPI’s “DX Series” was specifically designed to meet the rigorous requirements of the NIJ Standard-0101.06. This series is a hybridized construction employing two state-of-the-art ballistic materials, a woven fabric utilizing Teijin Aramid’s Twaron para-aramid fiber, and DSM Dyneema’s non-woven unidirectional Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene fiber. With the combination of these two ballistic materials, PPI’s engineering team was able to develop a high performing, lightweight, extremely comfortable body armor system that not only meets the NIJ standard but will also defeat multiple special threat projectiles.

The new NIJ-0101.06 standard encompasses many changes from the previous NIJ-0101.04 standard which include, but are not limited to, revised projectiles (threats) and velocities, the number of ballistic tests conducted, multiple sizing templates, environmental conditioning and water submersion requirements.
