Honeywell unveils improved ballistic material for military, police vests and soft armor applications

Honeywell, provider of high performance specialty materials, introduced a new Gold Shield® ballistic material with improved ability to stop bullets and fragments in military and police armor applications. The new ballistic material, Honeywell Gold Shield GN-2117, has demonstrated up to a 10% weight reduction when compared to Honeywell's traditional Gold Flex® material, which is also used in soft armor applications. The new product builds on Honeywell's proven Gold Flex ballistic material, a soft armor material that combines Honeywell's patented Shield technology with aramid fiber. The new Gold Shield GN-2117 incorporates a proprietary resin and coating system, which provides its increased environmental and chemical resistance, as well as improved fragment protection. This patent-pending technology helps Gold Shield GN-2117 meet the most stringent global body armor standards, including those of the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), which is the research, development and evaluation agency of the U.S. Department of Justice. The introduction of Gold Shield GN-2117 further expands Honeywell's portfolio of ballistic materials for advanced armor systems, including products for bullet-resistant vests, breastplates, helmets, combat vehicles and military aircrafts.
