Abstract:

Ballistic tests have recently been conducted on samples of a plastic laminate submitted by the Victory Plastic Company. The ultimate resistance of the plastic laminate by fragment-simulating projectiles was not affected by increasing the weight ratio of the bonding plastic to the nylon laminae, but this change did not increase the resistance of the laminate to delamination and thus effectively reduced the clearance necessary between such a protective material and the protectee.
