Kevlar® K-159 was developed for correctional institutions as the first stab resistant fabric. This new Kevlar® fiber, which is 4 times thinner than typical ballistic yarns, is used for an ultra-dense weave but still maintains a strength value that is five times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis. It takes multiple layers to make something stab resistant.

IMPORTANT: Testing of any new design is recommended for those companies or individuals trying to manufacturer bullet resistant or stab resistant items using Kevlar. It can take many plies of ballistic fabric such as Kevlar to stop a bullet or sharp objects, so testing of any new design is highly encouraged. Note: We do not have the answer to how many plies your design will need.
