Protech (Ballistic Fabrics)

Be it for the life of a soldiers, police and paramilitary, or the world of composites, aramid fabrics are used everywhere. Giving the highest strength to weight ratio, these fabrics are 5 times stronger than steel and have the capability of preventing damage from bullets travelling much faster than the speed of sound.

Aramid fabrics are the fasted growing technical textiles having a range of applications. The technology to make this is guarded secret and few have succeeded in weaving it. Sankhla’s have entered this field with this innovative technology for mass production.

We make Aramid fabric ranging from 500D to 3000D under our brand 'Ironhide'.

We are capable of successfully weaving NIJ II, NIJ II -A, NIJ III, NIJ III A standards.
