Civilian Technology

Galactic Bioware designed its Civilian Technology to deliver maximum protection against the threats to personal safety present in big cities without compromising comfort or clean design.

Our collection employs a multi-layer system of fibers that aims to reduce the impact and injury level from gunfire, knife wounds and bomb shrapnel.

Galactic Bioware's Civilian Technology outer fabrics include:

Cotton drill fabric - 
a distinct 9.44oz/yd2 (320gsm) comfortable fabric with a subtle diagonal drill weave for additional structure and strength.

Double brushed French Terry 100% cotton fleece 11.21oz/yd2 (380gsm) which is comfortable and warm.

Cordura® 1000 denier DWR treated ultra heavy duty 11 oz/yd2 (373 gsm) for our hard wearing products.

Multiple laminated high-modulus polyethylene (UHMWPE) layers whose long carbon chains serve to transfer impact load very effectively to the polymer backbone as a result of heavily strengthened intermolecular interactions.

Behind the UHMWPE layers is a Kevlar stitched matrix of military grade webbing to decelerate the ballistic objects. 

Delicate blend of soft and smooth comfortable polyester with an advanced polymer weave provides extraordinary all-direction stretch ability, comfort, durability and moisture distribution for quick-dry.

Some products include a Cordura® facing for additional structure and performance.


Galactic Bioware General Garment Construction
