Abstract:
In the last years, the risk to become a victim of a gun fight or to be involved into an amok situation increased. This leads to a higher demand for ballistic protection of civilians. Therefore, another capability profile for ballistic armor is necessary, compared to the military or police sector. The focal point of civil ballistic armor is wearing comfort, weight and invisibility. This paper provides information about the development of flexible and lightweight ballistic body armor. The manufacturing process is showed, heat- and sag test are presented, and first ballistic trials will be discussed below. The aim of the project is to create a ballistic body armor, which is flexible, and body fit enough to be worn under a sweater or suit. Furthermore, the body armor should meet the fourth level of ballistic protection of the "Association of test laboratories for bullet resistant materials and constructions" (VPAM 4). The idea can be realized by using an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) composite. A material with well-balanced properties to fulfill the ballistic and mechanical requirements.
