Products made from DuPontTM Kevlar® and Nomex® fiber are used in military armor.

Military Protection


Body armor made with DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber can mean the difference between life and serious injury or death for those in the military, emergency response, and law enforcement.

Whether the job is performing asbestos abatement, applying insulation, or handling industrial chemicals, DuPont understands the risks. Learn how leading DuPont brands Tyvek® and Tychem® help reduce worker exposure to hazardous work situations.

Whenever workers need superior cut protection, the cut- and fire- resistant properties of Kevlar® fiber fill that need.

DuPont collaborates with manufacturers and designers to innovate with performance fibers, including Kevlar®, Nomex®, and those made with Sorona® to develop solutions including those that protect our protectors and lower our carbon footprint.

The unpredictability of fires and electrical hazards only adds to the danger. Workers who are exposed to these hazards rely on thermal protection made from DuPont brands, including Nomex®, Protera®, and Kevlar®.

In hostile territories, even the roads become a battlefield. Vehicle armor made with DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber helps protect combat and tactical ground vehicles.
