FAQs > Zylon®-based Body Armor

Below is the question and answer you have chosen to view. If you are satisfied with the answer to this question you may use the left hand menu to navigate elsewhere on the site.

 When will the Department of Justice complete its testing of Zylon®-based body armor and provide the public safety community with the definitive answers on the performance of Zylon®-based body armor?

We anticipate the completion of the broad-based Zylon®. testing initiative in Spring 2005. This testing will indicate whether Zylon®-based body armors degrade, the general extent of the degradation, and what factors may be causing the degradation.
