Lightweight Ballistic Plates & Inserts

Reduce the weight, not the stopping power

Dyneema® offers flexibility of choice and action. With Dyneema® you can reduce the weight of individual inserts at the same protection level. Or provide extra life protection options, like side panels, without increasing overall weight.

Proven best-in-class material

Inserts made with Dyneema® Unidirectional (UD) material are best-in-class and are proven to help guard against heavy duty, multiple-hit threats including AK47 MSC (7.62 x 39 mm) and NATO Ball (7.62 x 51 mm).



  • Make individual inserts up to 25% lighter, versus steel 
  • Maintain the same protection level at lower weight
  • More choice and flexibility in armor design and deployment
