HYDERABAD, INDIA: DuPont opened its latest ballistics testing facility at the DuPont Knowledge Centre in Hyderabad, India. The new facility houses a ballistic testing range, a 600 tonne helmet press and stab testing equipment. It is the fifth DuPont site for testing protection materials in ballistic applications.

The DuPont ballistics facility will allow DuPont to work closely with its customers and end-users, including law enforcement, military and first responders, in an application testing facility dedicated to providing advanced materials that help protect more people from harm. In addition, DuPont will be able to develop solutions that can be tested under local conditions.

“With applications testing facilities located close to our global customers, we can better collaborate on innovations that help keep people safe and better protect the environment, structures and critical processes. As the brand leader in protection, DuPont is committed to using its science expertise to develop a broader portfolio of DuPont Kevlar materials and solutions that address local needs,” said Thomas G Powell, President, DuPont Protection Technologies.
