2. This term also refers to DuPont tactical teflon vests. Contrary to popular belief TEFLON IS NOT BULLETPROOF. Teflon is the nylon-type fabric used for the outside of the vest, while kevlar is the bulletproof material inside. So when 50 cent says he's got "teflon on (his) chest" it may be a bulletproof vest, but the teflon is NOT the bulletproof material.
