Pagination or Media Count:
The work was an effort to determine whether the performance of the new type Nylon 6 for personnel armor could be further optimized by variations in molecular weight, molecular weight distribution, orientation and crystallinity. The results, although negative in respect to the goals sought, nevertheless show that an investigation of fundamentally different types of fiber is needed to obtain significant improvements in tenacity, work-to-rupture, and attendant increases in impact resistance.
