Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. a fully reporting biotechnology company focused on the commercialisation of new textiles and high performance fibres including spider silks has announced that it has completed the first batch of Dragon Silk cocoon production for its recently reported military contract to produce ballistic shoot packs for the US army.

The fibres will be headed to a reeling facility to be prepared for delivery to Warwick Mills, a leader in the engineering of technical textiles for protective applications.

Kraig will contract Warwick Mills to produce ballistic shoot packs, for delivery to the US Army, based on the Company’s Dragon Silk technology. The company is expected to make final delivery to the US army in the second quarter of 2017.

Kraig founder and CEO Kim Thompson said, “The Indiana factory scale up of our proprietary recombinant spider silk, we call Dragon silk, has exceeded our expectations. As we ship this first batch of Dragon Silk cocoons dedicated for the US army, we are already beginning to prepare for production of fibres ready for commercial sale to some of our primary end users.”

The company will soon began its sale of Dragon Silk and Monster Silk fibres, in earnest, to the various parties that have submitted sample requests, with priority given to substantive collaborative development agreements and key end uses. (GK)
