DSM Dyneema is showcasing its recently launched Dyneema Anti Stab Technology at the 15th Defence Services Asia (DSA) Exhibition and Conference 2016 (Hall 3, booth #3032) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Based on Dyneema, the ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber, Dyneema Anti Stab Technology is the company's latest patented anti-stab material for soft armor applications which can be combined with Dyneema soft ballistic products to develop the next generation high performance, lightweight, and comfortable multi-threat protection body armor.

A vest incorporating Dyneema Anti Stab Technology provides outstanding protection against knives, blades, and other sharp weapons. Compared to current market solutions made with aramid, it is up to 25% lighter and thinner, and its flexibility provides greater comfort and freedom of movement to the wearer without sacrificing protection, according to the company.

"Over the years, the industry has been seeking significant improvements over existing anti stab protection solutions offered by aramids, composites and steel. Even in the Asia Pacific region, we received numerous requests from the market for an anti-stab solution that carries the technological benefits that Dyneema is known for in body armor protection; excellent protection at a lighter weight which personnel can use for extended operational periods with greater freedom of movement," said Nicole Ng, Regional Business Manager, Asia Pacific, DSM Dyneema. "Dyneema Anti Stab Technology was developed as part of our radical innovation platform to answer to these growing global needs including the Asia Pacific region, and to enhance the development of next generation multi-threat protection body armor."

Multi-threat protection vests made with Dyneema Anti Stab Technology and Dyneema soft ballistic products are designed to deliver high performance stab and ballistic protection at a lighter weight with unmatched flexibility and comfort to meets the current and future needs of law enforcement officers who face hostile confrontations, as well as military personnel who are engaged in urban operations.

It meets rigorous and widely used international standards, including the commonly used standards in the Asia Pacific region such as the UK HOSDB KR1 and KR2 Body Armour Standards for stab protection, and NIJ0101.04 Level IIIA for ballistic protection against handgun ammunitions such as 9mm FMJ and .44 Magnum SJHP SPEER, according to the company.

"Dyneema represents the next generation armor technology and is the material of choice in many soldier modernization and law enforcement programs globally, including the Asia Pacific region. We remain highly committed to leading and raising industry benchmarks in both ballistic and stab protection, by bringing innovative technological dimensions that truly deliver significant advancements in meeting the current and future requirements of military and law enforcement personnel who serve to protect," said Marcio Manique, Global Business Director, Life Protection, DSM Dyneema.
