Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Delivers Ballistic Shootpack Panels to U.S. Army


Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB:KBLB) ("Company"), the leading
developer of spider silk based fibers, announces today that it has
delivered ballistic shootpack panels to the U.S. Army made from the
Company's proprietary Dragon Silk™ material. These panels will be
evaluated for effectiveness in stopping bullets, in an effort to provide
our warfighters with a lighter and more comfortable alternative to
conventional protective apparel.

Dragon Silk is a genetically engineered spider silk which mimics the
strength and toughness found in native spider silk, but which can be
produced at large quantities through the Company's specially developed
silkworms. These specially engineered silkworms were developed to be a
direct drop-in replacement into the traditional silk production
infrastructure which produces more than 150,000 metric tons of silk per
year. This approach of adapting the existing production infrastructure
is the key differentiator between the Company and others working to
produce spider silk materials.

Unlike traditional synthetic materials such as Ultra High Molecular
Weight (UHMW) polymers or aramids, which are very stiff, spider silk is
extremely flexible, making it more comfortable and providing higher
mobility and movement for the wearer. Spider silk is also biocompatible,
making it ideal for skin contact applications, and biodegradable,
reducing the environmental burden of the current synthetic materials

"After years of research and investment, developing this ground breaking
technology, we are very excited to now see it in the hands of the U.S.
Army," stated Jon Rice, COO. "For me, personally, and for the Company,
the opportunity to help protect the brave men and women who dedicate
themselves to our protection is a great honor."

The Company continues to develop the next generation of high performance
recombinant spider silk materials under the exercised contract option
period authorized in 2017 and is currently in the process of opening a
production facility in Vietnam to significantly expand its production
capacity of Dragon Silk and its many other recombinant spider silk
