ARNHEM, the Netherlands, September 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Teijin Aramid is launching a new anti-ballistic spall-liner solution at the
DSEI show in London next week. The new fabric, Twaron T765, offers
cost-effective ballistic protection in ground vehicles. It is ideal for
protecting military vehicles in high-threat situations, but it can also
provide protection in civilian vehicles against lower-level threats. Spall
liners made of Twaron T765 can be used for protecting vehicles such as tanks,
trucks and armored personnel carriers and its passengers. 

Spall liners provide extra support for the outer faces of armored vehicles. In
the event of an impact or explosion on the surface, they help to prevent or
reduce fragmentation of the vehicle structure. This is important, as fragments
flying around the interior can often cause more injury to passengers than the
explosion itself. Twaron T765 is ideal for use in composite armor solutions
designed for the armoring of vehicles especially in combination with steel,
ceramic, aluminum and titanium.

Usually, fabrics used for spall liners are woven structures. Twaron 765,
however, uses warp-knitting technology. This state-of-the-art-process, which
is also used to create advanced 3D glass-fiber constructions, results in a
fabric that's heavier and sturdier. This means that less layers are needed to
meet the high ballistic specifications. In addition, less material has to be
purchased, processed and treated during production. All in all, this can lead
to substantial savings and enable more economical ballistic solutions, while
delivering a high level of ballistic protection.

Teijin Aramid has extensive experience in developing ballistic solutions for
armoring vehicles. Twaron T765 has been tested rigorously. Combined with other
materials it protects against bullets, fragments, Improvised Explosive
Devices (IEDs), mine blasts and projectiles according to STANAG 4569, levels
1-4.

The introduction of Twaron T765 will take place at the DSEI in London, from 10
to 13 September 2013, stand number S6-216.
