Abstract:

A new saturant for the light weight armor was developed that showed possibilities. Samples of the panels laminated with the old and new saturants were subjected to 100 Relative Humidity and 160F for 12 days without appreciable distortion, increase in weight or loss in ballistic properties. A combination was developed for the eye shild that withstood striking velocities of 1755 feet per second, withstood delaminated better than any previous combinations and was fairly good optically.
