As a Spectra Shield manufacturer Progressive Technologies makes, designs an markets their own special models.
They are the first company to create light body armor that can withstand automatic weapons fire increasing the survivability of Military, V.I.P. Bodyguards, Secret Service even the President of the United States and other Heads of State.
Comparison: DUPONT KEVLAR 49 is the first body armor invented. It is also an aramid [a type woven material] which retards when exposed to moisture. The more moisture it absorbs the lower the bullet retention. This breakdown causes a vest to become less protective to higher calibers of ammunition. The more you sweat the less protection you’re afforded with KEVLAR 49.
The second generation KEVLAR 149 was designed lighter; however it is still an aramid. Downside: It won’t float and will burn.
Allied Shield Spectra Shield is third generation body armor produced completely differently it in it’s original form resembles “Saran-Wrap” in texture and consistency which makes it retain heat.
It is impervious to fuel oils, floats even in salt water, is not an aramid so it will not retard even in pouring rain.
Spectra Woven Gen IIIA now a Honeywell company allows for a cooler operational temperature for the wearer is considerably lighter than KEVLAR 49.

Pacific Hovercraft NZ Ltd., (PHNZ) Waipara, New Zealand, reports numerous unlawful offenses committed by China Hovercraft Ltd., Shanghai, China aka Lianyungang Supreme Hovercraft aka Shanghai Supreme Hovercraft.
•Breach of contract
Guang Ming Yang, aka "Terry" Yang, of China Hovercraft Ltd. et al, contracted with PHNZ to manufacture PHNZ hovercraft in China and to subsequently purchase PHNZ. China Hovercraft violated the terms of the contract; such violations included: failure to pay royalties and worker salaries; failure to fulfill customer orders; receiving/retaining stolen property; and unlicensed manufacturing.
•Intellectual property infringement
China Hovercraft Ltd. is unlawfully making use of the Pacific Hovercraft NZ Ltd. Slider™ trademarked logo on its hovercraft and has plagiarized PHNZ marketing materials. Further, China Hovercraft Ltd. has attempted to trademark the PHNZ-owned Slider™ name in China.
•Receiving/ retaining stolen property
China Hovercraft Ltd. has refused to comply with orders demanding the return of components and equipment owned by Pacific Hovercraft NZ Ltd. and its investors.
•Unlicensed production/sale of counterfeit hovercraft
Ignoring all cease and desist orders, Guang Ming "Terry" Yang and China Hovercraft Ltd. continue the unlicensed and unauthorized manufacture of counterfeit PHNZ hovercraft utilizing unproven Chinese components and continue to illegally market these copies as the PHNZ trademarked Slider™ hovercraft.
Pacific Hovercraft NZ Ltd. is a respected international firm with more than 20 years' experience in the hovercraft industry, whose proven hovercraft designs conform to the highest standards, including international ISO standards, American SAE standards and New Zealand MSA standards.
Hovercraft are utilized by first response agencies for rescue operations; such agencies require assurance that their life-saving equipment is produced by reputable, experienced manufacturers such as PHNZ.
China Hovercraft Ltd. has existed only since 2008. In 2007, PHNZ was introduced to “Terry” Yang by Mr. Sammy Wong, the husband of New Zealand Cabinet Minister Pansy Wong. Because Mr. Wong and Mr. Yang were impressed with PHNZ hovercraft, they subsequently formed Lianyungang Supreme Hovercraft Ltd., the first incarnation of China Hovercraft Ltd., and entered into a contractual agreement with PHNZ.
The deterioration of the partnership agreement has resulted in international legal actions and the resignation of New Zealand Cabinet Minister Pansy Wong due to breach of governmental regulations involving actions by she and her husband, a Director of China Hovercraft Ltd.
