Depending on the gauge, Tuff-n-Lite® material is ounce for ounce up to 15 times stronger than steel -- but it’s as soft and flexible as cotton.
Tuff-n-Lite® clothing is lightweight, breathable armor that looks like the clothing you would normally wear.
Not only is it stronger than garments made from commonly used aramid fibers such as Kevlar® and Twaron®, Tuff-n-Lite® will not sacrifice its strength when wet or exposed to ultra violet sunlight. Also, unlike the high strength fiber fabrics, it is not affected by disinfectants or common household bleaches.
Tuff-n-Lite® is created by a unique, multi-patented process that combines natural and synthetic fibers for almost unimaginable strength. It can be made cut resistant, slash resistant, tear resistant, abrasion resistant, flame resistant and chemical resistant. We can even add Micro-Texpur microbial and antibacterial protection.
Tuff-n-Lite® has a core fiber that’s combined with strands of other fibers -- UHMWPE, glass and stainless steel -- to add characteristics like strength, abrasion resistance, heat resistance and softness. Our commitment to research and development in engineering high-performance materials -- combined with our manufacturing and technical expertise, quick turn-around and competitive pricing -- makes us the unquestioned leader in the specialty-materials industry.
