d more to their own safety, lead all kinds of personal protection apparatus to rapidly develop. This study designed and manufactured the stabbing resistant fabrics to prevent the pricking damage of human body. In this study, woven Kevlar fabric is laid between two layers of polyamide 6 fibrous webs that contain low-melt polyester fibers. The fibrous webs and woven fabric are bonded via needle punching and thermal bonding to generate a nonwoven/woven composite fabric that can be used as a substrate for artificial leather. The polyamide 6 staple fiber is the primary component of the nonwoven structure. The low-melt polyester fiber was added via thermal bonding to reinforce the composite fabric structure. The stab resistance of the composite fabric was reinforced by the woven Kevlar fabric. Because the bonding process alters the mechanical properties of the composite fabric, effects of bonding process conditions, such as needle punching density and thermal bonding temperature, on the mechanical properties and stab resistance of the composite fabric were investigated. The stab resistance of the composite fabric was assessed by stab resistance tests using the ASTM F1432 standard. Experimental results demonstrate that the optimal parameters obtained from sample which needle punching density is 200 needles/cm2
