Advanced Fabric Technologies Inc (AFT) has acquired exclusive rights to develop and market auxetic materials technologies for military and public safety blast containment, ballistic protection and other applications in the Americas.

AFT acquired from Auxetix Ltd of Tiverton, UK, the exclusive manufacturing and marketing rights to materials covered by that company's international patents on the use of auxetic technology to automatically adjust the strength, thickness and other properties of a material in response to blast waves, projectiles, shrapnel and other stimuli. Auxetix developed and tested its first-generation blast- and ballistic protection material -- Zetix -- in association with Exeter University and Dow Corning Ltd.

"We believe Zetix in its current and future formulations is a game-changer for security-oriented uses like blast curtains, blast mitigation and protection, anti-ballistic vests and soft body armor, and for a wide range of sensing and filtering applications," said AFT CEO David O'Keefe. "We are collaborating with the world's preeminent producers of engineered composite fabrics in manufacturing Zetix, and with the leading developers and marketers in a number of segments to bring products to market with significant performance and competitive advantages."

Advanced Fabric Technologies (AFT) exclusively develops and markets blast mitigation and anti-ballistic fabrics employing patented auxetic technology to save lives and reduce injuries inflicted in terrorist attacks, industrial accidents and natural disasters. The company's products, U.S.-made by world-leading manufacturers and weavers, utilize auxetic technology that was named the best technical textile development of 2007, and Best Security Start-Up in the 2009 the Western Europe Global Security Challenge.
