Made from Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene, or UHMWPE for short. UHMWPE when it is used for body armor it is created using a process called gel-spinning. This involves drawing dissolved ethylene through a series of small holes, which creates a gel material.
Two pieces of this gel are then sealed within polyethylene film, and this creates a composite that can then be made into both flexible, lightweight ballistic panels, or more rigid, hard armor plates. Research has shown that the strength-to-weight ratio for UHMWPE can be up to 40% higher than that of traditional para-aramid fibers (Kevlar®). Because of this it is becoming increasingly popular in today's body armor. Body armor may not be possessed by convicted felons in some states, and perhaps others.Otherwise currently allowed for legal civilian personal defense use. Ensure you are lawful to own body armor in your jurisdiction.
