Holy Kevlar, Batman©!
Sometimes Hollywood gets it right. The high-tensile protective properties of Batman’s equipment have long been attributed to DuPont™ Kevlar®. And while some of his armor is pure pulp fiction (a Kevlar cape won’t stop bullets any better than a shower curtain), many of Batman’s gadgets are a lot closer to reality than you might realize. In fact, with the right Kevlar materials, you could build an approximation of a Batsuit, a Batmobile or a Bat Cave.
DuPont™ Kevlar® Saves the Day
Kevlar is a high-strength synthetic fiber developed by DuPont in 1965. It’s used for its durability and heat resistance on a wide variety of applications, from athletic safety gear to building construction to body armor. Even the U.S. military uses it in their combat equipment. So it makes sense that Batman would be keen on Kevlar.
Want to be the baddest Batman on the block this Halloween? We’ve created an infographic of real-life, high-tech, Batman-worthy Kevlar applications—including a UD Replicas Batsuit! Our free Going Batman with Kevlar infographic highlights actual Kevlar products that provide Batman-like protection in the real world. These products are widely available and easy to purchase.
So download the infographic, grab some Kevlar and get ready to transform your sedan into the next Batmobile!
Note: We don’t recommend pursuing a career in vigilante crime-fighting. Even with Kevlar applications, you don’t get the protection Batman has. And it’s just not a good idea.
