Abstract:

Fiber yarn, ballistic fabric, ballistic felts, and ballistic fiber- unsaturated polyester resin laminates were tested using existing ballistic materials specifications as guidelines. Twenty-five square yards of X-500 fabric for each of the three types were woven on a conventional textile loom. Ballistic felt samples five yards square each were prepared from Type II and III X- 500 staple fiber by the needle loom method, and ballistic fiber-resin laminate panels by the vacuum bag-autoclave forming technique.
