Kevlar® KM2® Plus


Kevlar® fiber for Military—KM2 Plus—the most protective DuPont fiber for the most hazardous duty.

When counterinsurgency goes kinetic, DuPont responds. It always has. As the threat changes so must the response, so Kevlar® fiber continues to evolve. Kevlar® KM2 Plus fiber is our highest grade protective fiber for military use and offers increased process-ability for conversion to woven fabrics and structures for ballistic fabric weavers and body armor manufacturers.  
The Kevlar® brand stands for proven protection now and in the future. It will continue to evolve to address future military needs for soldier protection system requirements.
DuPont created Kevlar® KM2® Plus — an evolution of the popular Kevlar® brand fiber. Military combat helmets  and tactical vests made with Kevlar® KM2® Plus helps manufacturers provide superior resistance against bullets and fragments, while maintaining a lighter weight for increased comfort and mobility. When woven into a fabric, it helps the fabric meet the requirements for military performance specs, including:
• Helps contribute to fabric flexibility
• Excellent thermal stability at temperature extremes


The DuPont Armor Technology Center in Wilmington, Delaware, is committed to improving DuPont™ Kevlar® and other DuPont brands for military solutions.
