POMPANO BEACH, Fla., July 29 (UPI) -- U.S. company Point Blank Solutions Inc. in collaboration with DuPont Protection Technologies announced the launch of new ballistic armor systems.
Point Blank Solutions announced the release of its Hi-Lite XP ballistic armor integrated with DuPont's Kevlar XP woven fabric technologies for a new protective body armor system. Tennessee-based Protective Apparel Corporation of America is also releasing its Perform XP armor system with the DuPont woven fabric.
The Hi-Lite XP and Perform XP models constructed with DuPont's Kevlar XP have passed the National Institute of Justice rigorous testing to achieve a Level IIIA certification. Officials say the new ballistic models are part of an effort to counter the increased threat law enforcement officers face in the line of duty.
"We continue to collaborate closely with partners and suppliers such as DuPont to integrate the most up-to-date, state-of-the-art materials and technologies into our ballistic systems," Michael Foreman, Point Blank Solutions Domestic and International Sales senior vice president, said in a statement.
