Since their discovery in the early 1990’s scientists have been fascinated by Carbon Nanotubes. They are as light as air, stronger than diamonds and can be as flexible as rubber. This makes them perfect for enhancing the performance of body armor such as: vests, helmets, gloves and pants. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are five times less dense than steel and approximately 30 times stronger this makes them the ultimate mechanical filler for reinforcing polymers like aramid fibers such as Kevlar without adding extra weight.
