3D fabric and composite developed 3TEX Inc has signed a long-term strategic alliance with Second Chance Body Armor Inc, the manufacturer of soft concealable personal body armour, primarily for police and military use.

Using 3TEX's patented 3Weave process and 3TEX Engineered Armor Products, Second Chance will develop a wide variety of protective armour for police, swat, and military units throughout the world. Products may include helmets, body armor vests, shields, barriers, and armor kits.

In addition, the two companies will work together to develop new anti-ballistic and anti-stab armor applications, along with new commercial products which may improve "stab'' performance, back face signature, and ballistics performance.
