TenCate Armourtex™ products
The TenCate Armourtex™ product family consists of the following: TenCate Armourtex™ fabrics are manufactured using materials such as aramid or polyethylene. They are available in all densities, styles and available yarn types, both as lightweight materials and with heavy backing. These fabrics can be used in body armour for law enforcement organisations, military forces or security services. Other applications include fragmentation blankets and the protection of sensitive equipment.
These fabrics are based on wellproven state-of-the-art weaving technologies designed to increase performance. TenCate Armourtex™ prepregs and semipregs are coated, impregnated fabrics with a range of different resin systems and formulations developed in-house. These can be used for military helmets, shields and backings as well as in hybrid armour solutions for vehicles, ships and aircraft.
These materials ensure users all the benefits of light weight, all-in-one protection. One special grade is the rubberised aramid fabric, suitable for protection against handguns, for spall liners in armoured vehicles and as backing in add-on armour products. The fabrics are coated with a rubber mixture that provides outstanding ballistic performance. It is also weatherproof and resistant to UV light, salt water and many chemicals.
