Abstract:

ORLON NEEDLED BATTS WHICH WERE COMMERCIALLY PROCESSED WERE INEFFECTIVE BUOYANTLY. Additional curing upgraded the material slightly but a substantial increase in the buoyancy was obtained by compartmentation using 6-in. strips of the Orlon batt separated by plastic film to form larger sections. The effect of various surface finishes on the ballistic performance of 42 ozsq yd batts containing Orlon staple was investigated. The 3 finishes studied were the manufacturers original anti-static agent, hydrophobed Aerogel and Decetex-104 silicon water-repellent. The ability of the batts to withstand fragment penetration increased as the fiber-tofiber friction decreased. A comparison f the ballistics of 2 types of Dacron staples, hydrophobed, was obtained. Type 5400 was vastly superior to Type 64. A 5050 blend of hydrophobed Acrilan and Dacron was equal ballistically to a 5050 composite of the same materials. Author
