Personal Armour Systems Symposium 2012

DSM Dyneema, the producer of UHMwPE fiber and UD, branded Dyneema, has recently finished two projects to study the long-term ballistic properties of various elements of personal protection equipment, intended for use by law enforcement and military personnel, made with its Dyneema UD unidirectional composite.

DSM Dyneema is presenting the results of this latest research into ageing in a paper to be given at PASS 2012, the biennial Personal Armour Systems Symposium this year being held in Nuremberg on September 17-21st. Both papers have been peer reviewed, and accepted by the PASS scientific committee. Data collected confirm the predictions made in accelerated ageing tests that the company presented two years ago at PASS 2010 in Quebec.
