Does Body Armor Expire?

Does Body Armor Expire?

Does body armor expire? In short, yes, all body armor does expire, but not all body armor is equal. Hardwire utilizes Dyneema. Dyneema is the only man-made fiber stronger than spider silk, coming in at 15X stronger than steel. It is naturally buoyant, waterproof, moisture-wicking, breathable,  and will not delaminate due to moisture. Kevlar on the other hand will begin to disintegrate with element exposure and is only 5X stronger than steel.
