FMS is a world leader in the production of Uni-Directional (UD) fabrics. FMS soft ballistic solutions are produced from a wide range of UD Polyethylene and UD Aramid fabrics. They are the main components for all soft bulletproof and anti-stab vests. FMS soft armour solutions are recommended for NIJ levels IIA, II and IIIA, and for anti-stab protection for NIJ level 1 and 2, providing protection against fragments, handgun bullets and knives. The NIJ level IIIA provides the highest protection rating in soft body armour, minimizing blunt trauma injury.
The FMS soft Polyethylene and UD-Aramid panels help bulletproof vest manufacturers achieve a better ballistic performance.
UD-Aramid materials have superior fragment protection compared to their woven counterparts and as a result are very popular in tactical and military bulletproof vest applications. Vests containing FMS soft armour panels were certified according to various world known standards including NIJ 0101.04 and NIJ 0101.06 standard, which is a standard of US National Institute of Justice.
