ArmorWorks & Tech Fiber to exhibit at TTNA
Feb '08
ArmorWorks LLC and Tech Fiber LLC, both Phoenix-based high-tech armor protection providers, will showcase their Ballistic Advantage Kit armor systems during Techtextil North America (TTNA), April 1-3, in Atlanta, Ga.

The featured M915 A2/A3 tactical vehicles and High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) will be fitted with the same type of armor protection currently being used by the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“This armor exceeds IED [improvised explosive device] specifications,” said ArmorWorks' Vice President of Business Development Robert Codney. “The U.S. Army took the HMMWV onto the streets of Al Fallujah where actual IED attacks resulted in only minor abrasions to the troops using this armor. It has been exceeding expectations ever since.”

As armor designers and producers, ArmorWorks demonstrates how some of the very materials on exhibit at Techtextil North America have been engineered into state-of-the-art composite technologies. The M915 A2 and A3 full-scale cab and underbody armament and the fully-armored HMMWV utilize ceramic systems containing aramid fibers manufactured by exhibitor, Tech Fiber LLC.

“By showcasing such a relevant end-use, we are hoping to grow the awareness of what the high-performance materials exhibited at Techtextil are capable of,” said Stephanie Everett, the show's manager. “It is an honor for us to have the ArmorWorks team joining us this April and we believe that the display will be of great interest to our attendees.”
