DuPont Launches New Lightweight Helmet Innovation at Eurostary

Monday, June 11th, 2018

DuPont Safety & Construction will launch a new lightweight innovation for tactical helmets, DuPont™ Tensylon® HA120, at Eurosatory, June 11-15, 2018.

“DuPont™ Tensylon® HA120 is a new material for helmets that provides maximum ballistic protection at a lighter weight than traditional helmets, taking some of the load off the men and women on the front lines,” said John Richard, vice president and general manager, DuPont™ Kevlar® and Nomex®.

“Tensylon® HA120 enables helmets to be up to 40 percent lighter than traditional helmets allowing military and law enforcement members worldwide to stay safer and move faster with improved mobility.”

Designed with optimum ballistic properties and impact resistance, Tensylon® HA120 ensures maximum protection and lightweight durability for high performance helmet applications. Optimizing the performance of traditional Tensylon® solid state extruded ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) film technology, allows manufacturers to make lightweight ballistic helmets with superior protection from bullet penetration and low back face deflection (BFD), in a single-step processing cycle. To improve mold release, bonding to paint and abrasion resistance, a Tensylon® HA120 core can be co-molded with outer skins of woven fabrics made with Kevlar® fiber.

“Innovation is a continuous process at DuPont,” Richard said. “We’re constantly looking for new solutions that are stronger, lighter and more comfortable for the men and women protecting us. They deserve the best protection, so they can stay focused on the high-risk job of safeguarding their communities and their countries.”

The new Tensylon® HA120 material and other DuPont ballistics solutions will be featured at the DuPont Safety & Construction booth located in Hall 6, Stand J251 at Eurosatory 2018 at Parc des Expositions de Paris Nord Villepinte in Paris. Customers and the media also are invited to attend a DuPont Safety & Construction reception at the Le Chalet des lles restaurant, Wednesday, June 13, 2018, at 7:30 p.m. CEST.

IWI Introduces New Flattop Configurations for TAVOR, X95 and ACE Family of Small Arms

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) will unveil its expanded portfolio of assault rifles, at Eurosatory 2012, June 11-15, Paris, Israel Pavilion, Hall 6 at Booth # CD690. Look for new Flattop configurations for TAVOR and X95 assault rifles as well as new NATO cartridge configurations for the ACE Family (ACE N).

The X95 can be used as an Assault Rifle, Carbine, or Submachine Gun (SMG), it is the standard Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Assault Rifle. Interestingly, it can quickly be converted from 5.56mm caliber to 9mm caliber and vice versa.

The bullpup design TAVOR 5.56mm Family of Assault Rifles was developed in close cooperation with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), based on lessons learned from actual combat. It is in service in the IDF Infantry and Special Forces as well as in other countries throughout the world. Among its additional features, the TAVOR’s body is made of strong, modern composite materials, and its metal parts are corrosion-resistant. According to IWI, it maintains zeroing at all times, even when converting from day optics to night optics, and can be comfortably used by either left or right-handed shooters.

The ACE Family of 5.56mm and 7.62mm caliber Assault Rifles are based on the exceptionally reliable mechanism of the very successful GALIL Assault Rifle. Blending enhanced human engineering and ergonomics with the demands of the modern battlefield – and providing both automatic and semi-automatic fire modes – the ACE has been extensively battle proven under the most extreme conditions, worldwide. The rifle comes in three barrel lengths and incorporates 4 Picatinny rails. Air cooled and gas operated, the rifles are easy to use by right or left-handed users, are simple to maintain without special tools, and include night sights and telescopic and/or foldable butts.

According to Uri Amit, IWI’s CEO, “We are pleased to introduce a variety of new configurations that expand our portfolio of solutions in the area of assault rifles. We continuously invest in the development of new products, working together with our customers and developing the best possible weapons to meet their needs. We will be displaying our entire line of products at Eurosatory, and invite attendees to visit our booth.”
