Comparison of Kevlar VS Ballistic Nylon as body armour. Modern reinforced Kevlar is surprisingly good at resisting bladed weapons as well as bullets. Ballistic nylon was originally developed by the DuPont corporation as a material for flak jackets to be worn by World War II airmen. It has since been used in infantry flak jackets before being replaced by Kevlar. Kevlar is a well-known component of personal armour such as combat helmets, ballistic face masks, and ballistic vests. The PASGT helmet and vest used by United States military forces since the 1980s both have Kevlar as a key component, as do their replacements. Other military uses include bulletproof facemasks used by sentries and spall liners used to protect the crews of armoured fighting vehicles.

People that are affluent and in the public spotlight require protection that is subtle and concealable. Being in the public eye requires these individuals to wear clothing that does not stand out from the norm. No more is body armor the dominion of politicians and the military, it is now available for the elite who can afford it. Today’s armor is no longer bulky and uncomfortable, modern day technology has introduced new lightweight materials that are barely discernible from ordinary fabric and textiles. The next evolution in fashion is bulletproof clothing, correctly called ballistic or bullet resistant clothing that protects its wearer from projectiles fired at close range.

A few weeks ago, I tested this 1500 Denier PE cloth (12-ply) directly with 9mm ammo. It failed. But actually the bullets went through between the threads without breaking them. So I guessed epoxy resin could harden the material and prevent the fibers from being pushed away by bullets. Now this is the 2nd test with this cloth, the hardened version. And it failed again...
An attempt was made. Let's see what Jeff at Taofledermaus thinks... https://youtu.be/3up2SyCB0ps Long term projects http://www.Patreon.com/AvE

Researchers from City University New York have developed a bullet proof graphene mesh that will stop a bullet because it turns into a graphene diamond when pressure is applied. This material becomes as hard as diamonds when hit and takes no damage. When the pressure is removed it then goes back to its flexible state. So why is graphene stronger than a diamond. It has to do with the 2d structure that leaves areas for connection to near by atoms. That is part of what makes this so unique . If you layer more than 2 layers it loses this ability. Same for a single layer. So 2 layers of graphene a million times thinner than a sheet of paper can stop a bullet. Bulletproof graphene is only one of the uses of graphene. Graphene properties and graphene applications include conducting electricity and heat dissipation. because of this new graphene bulletproof test we can ad graphene structure and bonding to the list of future applications of graphene. Graphene technology 2017 is impressive but because of this graphene strength test we have options other than the worlds thinnest bullet proof vest. ******************************************************************** Here on ZakDTV I like tho bring the most interesting science news every Monday-Wednesday and Friday.

Rheologists Apply Shear-Thickening Fluids to Protective Gear August 1, 2006 (originally posted by DBIS - American Institute of Physics) Rheologists have created a new way of bullet-proofing clothes using shear-thickening fluids. Fabric treated with shear-thickening granular suspensions can turn soft material into solid protective gear when struck by a projectile. The treatment can strengthen Kevlar to produce lighter, more comfortable bullet-proof vests, or it can be used to turn extend the bullet-proof protection to ordinary fabric. NEWARK, Del. -- Hard, heavy, stiff and bulky is how most cops describe their bullet-proof vests, but relief could be in sight. One coat of this gooey liquid turns soft fabric into a tough, stab-proof, bullet-proof material. It's not just in the movies. Our men and women in blue put their lives on the line every day, and this may be their next weapon against crime. It's no normal, flimsy piece of fabric after it's soaked in shear-thickening fluid, which turns soft material into solid protective gear. "The material becomes very hard and prevents the projectile from moving through the fabric," Norman Wagner, a rheologist at the University of Delaware in Newark, tells DBIS. Rheologists, who study the unusual flow of materials, developed the liquid. Now, it's being tested on Kevlar to make bullet-proof vests as comfortable as regular clothing. "A normal vest is 30, 40 layers of Kevlar fabric tightly packed together," Wagner says. "We can potentially reduce the number of layers, making the material lighter, more flexible, better -- easier to wear." To prove the liquid's toughness, an ice pick goes right through untreated fabric, but it's stopped by fabric coated with the new liquid. Tiny, hard particles in the liquid cluster together and jam when struck by a sudden force. Fabric coated in the liquid becomes hard enough to stop a bullet, while remaining flexible. Wagner says, "We want to improve current body armor technology and make it resistant to many different threats -- not just ballistic, but also fragmentations such as bombs." The military plans to use the liquid technology to improve Kevlar vests for troops, a must-have body armor that saves lives. Researchers will also test the liquid technology in fabric for pants and sleeves, areas that aren't covered by a traditional Kevlar vest. SCIENCE INSIDER BACKGROUND: Engineers have designed a way to make police officers and soldiers safer with better body armor. The secret is a new "shear-thickening" fluid. When fabric has been saturated in this new fluid, it becomes strong enough to stop a bullet, but strong enough to wear comfortably. HOW IT WORKS: When a bullet strikes the fabric, it immediately becomes rigid and keeps the object from penetrating. Once the assault has stopped, the fabric returns to being flexible and lightweight. Material that has been soaked in the new fluid is slightly oily to the touch but otherwise feels and drapes like normal fabric. ABOUT SMART MATERIALS: The shear-thickening fluid is an example of a "smart material." Smart materials are a class of materials that can sense and respond to changes in the environment, either through the application of electricity or magnetism, or to changes in temperature. In the case of the new body armor, the material responds to a change in pressure. Under normal conditions, the fluid's molecules are weakly bonded and can move around with ease; that's why the material is so flexible. But the shock of an impact causes those chemical bonds to strengthen so the molecules lock into place; once the force from the impact dissipates, the bonds weaken again. That's why the fabric becomes rigid instantly when a bullet strikes, preventing that bullet from penetrating, and reverts to its more flexible state once that force has ceased. WHAT IS ELASTICITY? Different materials can withstand different amounts of deformation, a property known as elasticity. Most materials are elastic to some degree: when they are deformed or bent by an infusion of incoming energy, they will bounce back to their original shape. But elastic materials all have their limits. Metal springs and rubber bands are very elastic. Plaster and glass are not very elastic; instead, they are brittle and snap with even a small deformation. Energy, like momentum, is conserved, but in a collision, it can turn into different forms of energy, such as heat or noise. How much of the energy is converted depends in part on both the relative toughness and elasticity of the materials involved in the impact. There is no such thing as a perfectly elastic collision, but if there were, all of the energy would be transferred to the target with nothing lost to heat or noise, for example.
