Made from Auxilam, a carbon fibre composite material, this body armour will protect the wearer from the most vicious and brutal types of edged weapon and shanks, according to the provider, PPSS Group. Utilizing a combination of the strength of carbon fibre, the auxetic properties of Auxilam technology and some additional “top secret” assets derived from the specially developed composite structure, this next generation of body armour offers a balance of weight, protection, performance and durability. Comparing it with PPSS Group’s polycarbonate-based stab resistant vests, the company is claiming a reduction of 19% in thickness (utilizing a 3.9mm carbon fibre composite) and a 6.6% lower aerial density and reduced weight for its latest development. The body armour is available as of Jan. 6.
