The Preparation and Application of Shell Powder in UHMWPE-Fiber Unidirectional Plate
The aim of this study was to put forward a new method to improve the ballistic impact performance of unidirectional plate (UD plate) by adding shell powder into matrix. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) spectra revealed that modified shell powder was dispersed uniformly in the matrix. The results of ballistic tests and temperature adaptation tests demonstrated that the bulletproof property of modified UD plate was improved about 20%. The heat-resistant temperature was increased approximately 5°C.
