UNI-DIRECTIONAL MATERIALS FOR SOFT ARMOR & HARD ARMOR APPLICATIONS
These new and revolutionary materials are produced using a patented production system that combines man made fibers in a Uni-Directional fiber-resin matrix to provide with a tension free matrix capable of absorbing more energy than similar woven products.
The UD material is produced in rolls of product, consisting of uni-directional fiber tapes cross-plied at 00/900.
UD FABRICS WORK BETTER THAN WOVEN FABRICS !
Woven fabric system creates stress junctions where the fibers intertwine, these stress junctions reduce the overall ability of the fabric to absorb energy.
The Uni-Directional matrix is designed in such a way as to eliminate these stress junctions and to allow the UD fabric to absorb more energy thus making the UD fabric a more efficient system in absorbing the bullet kinetic energy.
Currently the UD fabrics are one of the most used fabrics world wide for the ballistic protection industry.
