American Body Armor Announces New Dyneema and Twaron Vest at TREXPO West Meeting

May 01, 2007  | 

ABA’s new Torq 61 vest is constructed of multiple layers of Teijin Twaron and DSM Dyneema SB61. The result is a thin, lightweight bullet-resistant vest that not only stops handgun rounds, but also resists the twisting action that results when a bullet strikes most body armor.

Dyneema SB61 is a unidirectional nonwoven composite material that is more efficient in distributing energy than conventional woven fabrics. It is weight-per-weight 15 times stronger than steel and 40 percent stronger than aramid fibers. The result is a vest that spreads back face deformation over a wider, shallower area, reducing the blunt trauma experienced by the wearer.

The Torq 61 is available in NIJ Level II and Level IIIA.
