TurtleSkin materials offer personal protection

Advanced Textiles, Products | May 1, 2008 | By:

TurtleSkin® is a family of new patented materials, which are woven with high-strength fibers to be thin, yet protective. TurtleSkin’s weave interlocks aramid fibers so tightly they won’t shift or leave gaps for needles or other fine penetrators to slide past. Less than the thickness of three sheets of paper, the fabric offers personal protection without sacrificing dexterity and comfort. Applications include protective gloves, concealable body armor, protective hunting and hiking clothes, UHP water jet protection and USAR personal protective equipment.
