    Abstract

    Lightweight and toughness are key considerations for protective armor. Composite armor of Kevlar 29 aramid fabric and polyester resin was prepared using techniques developed for fiberglass/polyester armor. Commercial preimpregnated fabric was press-molded to prepare the target samples. The samples of the preimpregnated fabric were cured in a Pasadena press for 1 h at 165°C and 690 kPa.
