High-Performance Composites

In the November 2011 issue of HPC in a report titled, “Antiballistic composites: Course corrections” p. 50, it was noted that Honeywell Advanced Fibers & Composites (Colonial Hts., Va.) is working on a program through which its Spectra Shield UHMWPE and Gold Shield aramid fiber materials might be used in a future version of the U.S. Army’s enhanced combat helmet (ECH). Honeywell’s materials, however, are not currently used to manufacture the ECH. HPC apologizes for any confusion.
