Protection in Dangerous Situations

Body armor needs to protect the wearer effectively from injuries caused by external impact. Soft body armor gives resistance to stab and slash attacks from knives and other sharp objects. Norafin's high-performance nonwovens offer improved protection at lower basis weights enhancing the wearer's comfort of body armor. Those nonwovens are employed e.g. in body equipment in the area of cut and fragment protection, or in combined body armors that allow stab and bullet protection at the same time.

Thanks to the combination of our internal technology know-how we succeeded in developing our unique Norafin KOMANDA® technology, which enhances the protective properties of our nonwovens while keeping their weight equally low.
