Spectra Shield®

Lightweight bullet-resistant materials for body armor, helmets, vehicles and more

Honeywell Spectra Shield® ballistic materials have been protecting military and law enforcement personnel for more than 30 years. Specially designed for people exposed to the most critical work situations, these high-performance composites are both comfortable and flexible. Using Honeywell’s patented unidirectional Shield technology, Spectra Shield® body armor, helmets and vehicle armor enhance ballistic properties, including stopping power, and are manufactured under a comprehensive quality control process.

Spectra Shield® materials deliver some of the most efficient protection available today and are used to meet extreme conditions, performance and weight requirements. Spectra Shield contains Honeywell Spectra® fiber, which is pound for pound up to 15 times stronger than steel yet light enough to float.
