Properties and Use of Chemical Fibres

Abstract

The following conclusions can be drawn from an analysis of the data reported in the present article: SVM and Armos fibres are now the most promising for use in bulletproof materials; increasing the elongation to 5–6% while preserving the strength at the level of 400–450 kgf/mm2allows increasing the efficiency of use of fibres for bulletproofing; the method proposed here allows rapidly and efficiently conducting comparative tests and initial selection of materials and the pack structure of the energy-absorbing polymer support; new types of bulletproof fabrics must be developed to increase the efficiency of manifestation of the energy-absorbing properties of fibres.
