Ballistic Performance of Articles, Made with Dyneema at Elevated Temperatures, Extreme for Body Armor

04 January 2013 by DSM Dyneema

The performance of armor based on Ultra High Molecular Weight Poly-Ethylene (UHMW-PE) fiber at elevated temperatures has been studied.

The PASS 2010 publication showed that both Dyneema fiber does not significantly change in mechanical performance and Dyneema UD does not significantly change in ballistic resistance after being conditioned up to 20 weeks at elevated temperatures, extreme for body armor, and tested at ambient temperature.
