Kevlar® XP H170 for Helmets — All the Protection Without All the Weight
Kevlar® XP H170 for helmets: heavyweight protection in a lightweight helmet.
DuPont is constantly innovating to help manufacturers make their products lighter, stronger and safer. And due to Kevlar® XP H170 for helmets, they can now create helmets that offer a 100% Kevlar® solution, yet are lighter than ever before. Made of a high-toughness resin combined with Kevlar® KM2® Plus fibre, Kevlar® XP H170 for helmets enables a 20% decrease in helmet weight without compromising on performance. Alternatively, it can be used to help design helmets that provide up to a 20% increase in performance at an equivalent weight.
Kevlar® XP H170 for helmets also helps provide:
• Minimal back face deformation
• Fewer layers and reduced stitching requirements
