The present invention relates to pre-formed sheet to the Assembly at least two of the sheets and flexible product containing such an Assembly. Pre-molded sheet contains at least two monolayer, each of which contains one-directional oriented fibers having a tensile strength of at least 1.2 GPA and a modulus of tensile elasticity of at least 40 GPA, and a binder, with the fibre direction in each monolayer is rotated relative to the fibre direction in an adjacent monolayer, and a separating film on both surfaces.

This pre-formed sheet is known from EP 0907504 A1. This document disclosed a composite layer (or pre-molded sheet), which is obtained by overlaying 4 monolayers with transverse intersection and applying a separating film made of linear low density polyethylene, and the subsequent consolidation of the stack at an elevated temperature under pressure. Monolayers containing unidirectionally oriented fibers were obtained from fibers of aramid yarn having a linear density of 1680 decitex, through their transmission from the coil through the comb and wetting water dispersion of the block copolymer is a polystyrene-polyisoprene-polystyrene as a binder or matrix material. Of n is associated stack of several such composite layers made of flexible fittings, resistant to ballistic impact, while the stack is stabilized by the stitching at the corners.

The disadvantage of the prior art pre-formed sheet is that the relationship between the energy absorption containing such lists products that are resistant to ballistic impact, which is a measure of the level of ballistic protection, and weight of the product, resistant to ballistic impact is adverse. This ratio is usually referred to as the specific absorption of energy (the Department for industrial environment), i.e. the absorption of energy per mass unit area (usually called specific gravity UE). This means that to achieve a certain desired level of protection requires a relatively heavy product, resistant to ballistic impact. If, on the other hand, the product is resistant to ballistic impact, has a low weight, this product creates a relatively low level of protection against ballistic impacts. For a large number of tasks in the least possible weight, resistant to ballistic impact, in combination with certain minimum level of protection is of great importance. This applies, for example, means of individual protection, such as protective clothing and body armor, such as bulletproof vests, as well as for use in, for example, t is unsporty tools.

Thus, the industry has a constant need for pre-formed sheets to make products that are resistant to ballistic impact, providing a higher level of protection at a certain weight.

According to the present invention this is achieved by pre-molded sheet, where the separating film has a porosity of 40-90%.

Thanks to the pre-molded sheet of the present invention can be obtained significantly higher level of protection at a weight Assembly of sheets or articles that are resistant to ballistic impact, containing the Assembly sheet of the present invention. Another advantage of the pre-molded sheet of the present invention is that in addition to the favorable relationship between the protection level and density per unit area of the product is resistant to ballistic impact, comprising the Assembly of pre-formed sheets, has great flexibility, which extends the scope of applicability of such products, resistant to ballistic impact. This makes this product particularly suitable for areas where it is especially desirable to achieve high flexibility and comfort in use, for example, in bullet-proof vests. Such sheets, in addition, better prigodin is to print in different ways, which is an advantage from the point of view of production, as well as the quality and traceability of products.

Under products, resistant to ballistic impact, understood fittings containing an Assembly of at least two pre-formed sheets of the present invention, which can be used, such as protective clothing or for booking vehicles, and which provide protection against ballistic impacts, such as bullets and shrapnel.

The Assembly of the present invention contains a stack of pre-formed sheets, not related to each other, i.e. the sheets are not bonded or not bonded with each other on a substantial portion of their adjacent surfaces. However, contact with the stack of pre-formed sheets, which are not bonded to each other, it is difficult, because the stack has no connectivity (coherence), necessary for further processing. To achieve some level of coherence product, resistant to ballistic impact can be, for example, to sew. This binding, however, should be minimized, for example, in the corners or around the edges, to allow some movement of the sheets relative to each other. Thus, the pre-formed sheets in the Assembly or in the product, sustainable ballisticheskom impact can move relative to each other, then as the Assembly or the product has coherence and has good flexibility.

Pre-molded sheet contains at least two monolayer from unilaterally oriented fibers, with the fiber direction in each monolayer is rotated relative to the fiber direction in an adjacent monolayer, and at least two monolayer or related to each other or attached to each other. The angle at which deployed fiber in layers relative to each other, means the smallest angle between the fibers in the adjacent monolayers and ranges from 0about90about. Preferably this angle is between 45about90about. Most preferably, this angle is between 80about90about.Products that are resistant to ballistic impact, in which the fibers in adjacent layers are at an angle, have the best Sam characteristics. The term "monolayer" refers to a layer unilaterally oriented fibers and a binder, which basically holds the fibers together.

The term "fiber" includes not only the monofilament, but in addition and yarns are monofilaments or a flat belt. The term "unilaterally oriented fibers" refers to fibers that are in the same plane is oriented essentially p is parallel.

Fiber in a pre-molded sheet of the present invention have a tensile strength of at least 1.2 GPA and a modulus of tensile elasticity of at least 40 GPA. The fibers may be inorganic or organic fibers, such as fiberglass, carbon fibers, and ceramic fibers. Suitable organic fibers having a high tensile strength are, for example, aramid fibers, liquid crystal polymer fibers and fibers, for example, polylefin, polyvinyl alcohol and polyacrylonitrile, which have a high degree of orientation that can be achieved, for example, the spinning process of the gel. These fibers preferably have a tensile strength of at least approx. 2 GPA, at least a 2.5 GPA or even 3 HPa. Preferred are polyolefin fibers with a high degree of orientation. The advantage of these fibers is that they possess high tensile strength and low specific gravity, so they, in particular, are especially well suited for use in lightweight products that are resistant to ballistic impact.

Suitable polyolefins, in particular, are the homopolymers and copolymers of ethylene and propylene, which may also contain small amounts of one or some of the other polymers, specifically, the other alkene-1-polymers.

Good results are obtained when the polyolefin to choose linear polyethylene (PE). Linear polyethylene is understood here as polyethylene with less than 1 side chain per 100 carbon atoms and preferably less than 1 side chain per 300 carbon atoms. Side chain or branch usually contains at least 10 carbon atoms. Linear polyethylene may additionally contain up to 5 mol.% one or more other alkenes, which can copolymerizate, for example propylene, butylene, Panten, 4-methylpentene, octene.

Preferably linear polyethylene has a high molecular weight at a characteristic viscosity (HV, the solution in decaline at 135°C)component of at least 4 DL/g; more preferably at least 8 DL/g Such polyethylene is also called polyethylene with ultra-high molar mass (UITE). Characteristic viscosity is a measure of the molecular weight (also called molecular weight), which is easier to determine than the parameters of the real molecular weight, such as Mnand Mw. There are several empirical relationships between XB and Mwbut such relationships to a large extent depend on the distribution of molecular weight. On the basis of equality Mw=lower than the 5.37×104[XB]1,37(see EP 0504954 A1), XB at 4 and 8 DL/g is equivalent to Mwapprox. 360 or 930 kg/mol, respectively.

Preferably used polyethylene fiber with high performance (NRRA), consisting of filaments of polyethylene obtained by the method of spinning the gel described, for example, in GB 2042414 or WO 01/73173. The spinning method of the gel essentially consists of preparation of a solution of linear polyethylene with a high characteristic viscosity, spinning filaments from a solution at a temperature higher than the temperature of dissolution, cooling the filaments to a temperature below the gelation temperature to form gel, and extruding the filaments before, during, and after removal of solvent.

The term "binder" refers to a material that binds or holds the fibers together and can surround the fiber completely or partially, so as to preserve the structure of the monolayer during the transportation and manufacture of pre-formed sheets. The binder material may be in various forms and in various ways, for example, as a film, as the transverse connecting strip or cross-fiber (transverse relative to the unidirectional fibers), or by impregnation of the fibers by the matrix material or the introduction of fibers in such a material, for example, by using a melt or polymer solution or dispersion of the polymer material in the liquid. Site is preferably the matrix material is homogeneous distributed over the entire surface of the monolayer, while the binding strip or binder fibers can be applied locally. Suitable binders are described in EP 0191396 B1, EP 1170925 A1, EP 0683374 B1 and EP 1144740 A1.

In a preferred embodiment, the binder is a matrix of polymer material, which may be thermosetting or thermoplastic material, or mixtures thereof. The elongation at break of the matrix material is preferably greater than the elongation of the fibers. Binder preferably has an elongation 3-500%. Suitable thermosetting and thermoplastic matrix materials are listed, for example, in WO 91/12136 A1 (p.15-21). The material of the matrix is preferably selected from the group of thermosetting polymers, vinyl esters, unsaturated polyesters, epoxy or phenolic resins. The matrix material can be selected from the group of thermoplastic polymers, polyurethanes, polivinil, high, polyolefins or thermoplastic elastomeric block copolymers such as block copolymers of polyisoprene-polyethylene-butylene-polystyrene or polystyrene-polyisoprene-polystyrene. Preferably the binder consists essentially of a thermoplastic elastomer, which essentially covers a single thread of these fibers in the monolayer and has a modulus of tensile elasticity (as measured by ASTM D638 at 25° (C) less than approx. 40 MPa. This binder gives high flexibility the monolayer and Assembly of pre-manufactured sheets. Produced very good results, when the binder is in monolayers and pre-molded sheets was a block copolymer of styrene-isoprene-styrene.

In a special embodiment of the present invention a binder in a pre-molded sheet of the present invention in addition to the material of the polymer matrix also contains a filler in an amount of 5-80% by volume of the total volume of the binder. More preferably the amount of filler is 10-80% by volume and most preferably 20-80% by volume. It was found that the flexibility of products that are resistant to ballistic impact, increases without compromising Sam characteristics.

The filler is not involved in creating the connection between the fibers, and is used for volumetric dilution of the matrix between the fibers, resulting in a product that is resistant to ballistic impact, become more flexible and absorbs more energy. The filler preferably contains finely dispersed substance with a light weight or density. The filler may be a gas, although the gas filler is a practical problem in the processing of the matrix material. Filler among other things may also contain substances that are specially designed for the preparation of dispersions, such as emulsifiers, stabilizers, with auusie etc. or a fine powder.

It was found that if the binder contains a filler in an amount less than 80% by volume, the amount of binder sufficient to achieve adequate communication between the fibers at a constant total number of matrix material. It was also found that if the matrix contains the filler in an amount of over 5% by volume, the flexibility of the product, resistant to ballistic impact, increases.

Preferably the amount of binder in the monolayer does not exceed 30% by weight, more preferably 25, 20 or even 15% by weight, since the protection against ballistic impacts play an important role in fiber.

Pre-molded sheet of the present invention on both surfaces contains a separating film with a porosity of 40-90%. These films can be, for example, a porous film made of polyethylene, polypropylene or polytetrafluoroethylene, which is described, for example, in EP 0184392 A1 and EP 0504954 A1. The porosity of the film is determined by the relative volume of voids, pores or channels in the film (expressed in volume%), determined by density measurements. It's best to determine the porosity of the film before it is applied to pre-formed sheet. The porosity may decrease during lamination under pressure when applied to the pre with Ormandy sheet. During lamination or pressure treatment is chosen such conditions (temperature, pressure, time)that allow you to get a consolidated sheet is a sheet in which all layers are at least partially bonded to each other, but essentially without melting separating film, because it would decrease the porosity and the deterioration of the mechanical properties of the film.

Preferably the separating film has an initial porosity, i.e. the porosity is up to the manufacture of pre-formed sheet, at least 50%, 60% or even at least 70%.

Preferably the film is the so-called microporous films, which means that the pores and channels in a substantially continuous matrix structure have a size of 0.001-10 μm, preferably 0.01 to 5 μm.

The separating film is preferably made of polyolefin, more preferably polyethylene. There are many different types of polyethylene are ideal for the formation of thin films, including different types of copolymers of ethylene and at least one comonomer, for example alpha-olefin. In a preferred embodiment, the separating film is essentially made of polyethylene with a high molecular weight, more preferably from polyethylene with ultra-high molar mass (UITE) with XB at least 4 DL/g Such plank which typically have relatively high strength and modulus of elasticity and high abrasion resistance.

Pre-molded sheet further contains an adhesive layer between the porous film and other layers to improve adhesion between the layers and thereby the integrity and stability of the sheet.

In a particular embodiment, the present invention pre-molded sheet contains monolayers containing fibers from high quality polyethylene (high performance polyethylene, NRRE) and a polyethylene porous film, more preferably a microporous film of OITA. The advantage of this design is that between the layers have good adhesion without the use of additional adhesives that promotes weight loss. In addition, the flexibility of the Assembly containing a stack of such sheets, very high, probably due to the very low friction between the surfaces of the sheets. This greatly increases the comfort of wearing is made of protective products.

Preferably the separating film is a film stretched in two axes, preferably as a film which has been stretched in two axes with a factor of 10-100. Under film, stretched along two axes with a factor of 10-100, here is the film that is stretched in two perpendicular directions, so that the surface of the film is increased by 10-100 times. A method of manufacturing such stretched films described in EP 0504954 A1. The advantage of films, stretched along two axes, is that what you can achieve an even higher level of protection at a given weight. Preferably, the film is stretched in two axes with a ratio of at least 20, at least 30, or even at least 40x. More preferably, the film is stretched along two axes, made of OITA, applied to the leaves. Such films have a relatively high ultimate tensile strength and modulus of tensile elasticity, which contributes to the deformation of the pre-formed sheet upon impact. Properties tensile preferably expressed on the width of the film (e.g., in N/m), and not on the cross section (as N/m2for ease of comparison with the non-porous films. Preferably therefore the separating film has a tensile strength in the width of the film (also referred to as the strength factor) of at least 150 N/m, at least 200 or even 250 N/m In the case of films with a high elongation at break (for example, more than 20%) as an indicative characteristics preferably is taken as the yield strength and not the strength at break. The modulus of tensile elasticity in the width of the film is preferably equal to at least 3000 N/m, of at least 4000 N/m, or even at least 5000 N/m

Although the thickness or mass per unit area (which is called "areal mass" or "areal density") of the film is not critical for the performance of protection against ballistic impacts, the preferred thin the film, because they further reduce the weight and increase the flexibility of the sheets, assemblies, and products. The best results were obtained with pre-molded sheet, where the separating film had an areal density of 2-8, preferably 2-4 g/m2.

Pre-molded sheet of the present invention contains at least two monolayer containing unilaterally oriented fibers. Essentially, the pre-formed sheet contains 2, 4 or any other number that is divisible by 2, perpendicularly oriented layers unilaterally oriented fibers, combined with the film stretched in two axes. Pre-molded sheet with two monolayers unilaterally oriented fibers, coupled with the tension on the two axes of the film on both surfaces, as it turns out, provides the best protection against ballistic impact.

In a particular embodiment, the present invention pre-molded sheet contains as a separating film is a film stretched along one axis, preferably a film with a stretch factor of 10-50. These films, stretched along one axis, are placed so that the direction of stretching of the film takes place perpendicular to the fiber direction in an adjacent layer of unidirectional fibers. In this case, the sheet may contain an odd number of mo is sloev. In a special variant 3 monolayer unidirectional oriented fibers, the Central layer of which has approximately the same areal density, which are both adjacent monolayer taken together, were covered with films, stretched along one axis, while the direction of stretching was held perpendicular to the fiber direction in an adjacent layer of unidirectional fibers. The advantage of this design is that in the process of continuous production of sheet, for example, drawing on the calender stretched along one axis films on the stack of monolayers, both the separating film can be applied in one direction relative to the roll sheets.

The present invention further relates to an Assembly of at least two pre-formed sheets of the present invention, where the sheets are not related to each other. When increasing the number of pre-formed sheets of the level of protection against ballistic impact is increased, but the weight of the Assembly is increased, and the flexibility decreases. For maximum flexibility the adjacent tiles in an Assembly are not connected with each other. Depending on the threat and the required degree of protection specialist experimentally can pick up the desired number of sheets.

Other advantages of the Assembly that is resistant to ballistic effects of the present invention, or isdel what I containing such an Assembly manifest when solving problems, where in addition to weight and level of protection of such products plays an important role flexibility.

Assemblies and products that are resistant to ballistic impact, can be used continuously, and only once. Permanent tasks requiring flexibility - these are tasks in which the product is resistant to ballistic impact resulting from the use of, constantly subject to change shape, for example, in products that are resistant to ballistic impact, which are used as body armor. One-time tasks that require flexibility - these are tasks where the Assembly or product that is resistant to ballistic impact, take concrete form only once. An example is a product that is resistant to ballistic impact, which should be installed in hard-to-reach places, such as car door.

It was found that the necessary flexibility, protection and weight Assembly that is resistant to ballistic impact can be achieved when the weight of the pre-molded sheet has a specific maximum value. Preferably the weight or areal density pre-molded sheet in products that are resistant to ballistic impact for problems with constant flexibility, does not exceed 500 g/m2when the fiber content ineach monolayer of 10-150 g/m 2. More preferably, the weight of the pre-formed sheet not exceeding 300 g/m2when the content of fibers in each monolayer 10-100 g/m2.

For tasks that require a one-time flexibility, you can use Assembly, or product that is resistant to ballistic impact with weight or areal density of not more than 800 g/m2and more preferably 300 g/m2because such tasks require a one-time flexibility, you need a certain minimum stiffness, so that the product could retain its shape. More preferably the weight of the pre-formed sheet exceeds 400 g/m2and even more preferably greater than 500 g/m2.

The Assembly is resistant to ballistic impact, in principle, can be manufactured by any known suitable means, for example by the method described in WO 95/00318, US 4623574 or US 5175040. The monolayer is created, for example, of fibers, preferably in the form of a continuous multifilament yarn, which is directed from the reel on a comb, resulting fibers take the orientation parallel to the plane. For ease of manufacturing it is possible to use a temporary support layer, for example a sheet of coated paper, which is removed from the monolayer at a later stage of production. Then apply a binder to hold the fibers together, i.e. for SOH is anemia received orientation and structure of the fibers for subsequent stages of production. If the binder is applied to the matrix material, the fibers before or after giving them parallel to the plane of orientation is preferably covered with some liquid substance containing a binder or its predecessor, which at later stages of the manufacture of products that are resistant to ballistic impact, react to form the polymer matrix material having a desired modulus of elasticity. The term "predecessor" refers to Monomeric, oligomeric or stitched polymeric composition. The liquid substance may be a solution, dispersion or melt.

A few monolayers, turning them relative to each other, preferably approx. 90aboutthat stack on one another and on both surfaces (above and below the stacked by monolayers) placed a separating film, thereby forming in the process a multi-layered sheet. It is preferable to increase the temperature and/or pressure to consolidate the layers using known methods; for example, it can be done in a periodic manner by compression of the stack in the mold, or continuously, in stages laminating and processing on the calender. If the binder is applied to the matrix material, the matrix material can be made to flow between the fibers and to stick to the fibers below and overlying monocle is in and not necessarily to the separating film. If you are applying a solution or dispersion of the matrix material, the method of forming monolayers in a multi-layered sheet also contains the stage at which evaporated the solvent or dispersant, essentially prior to the execution stages of deposition of the layers separating film and consolidation. Then such pre-formed sheets of the pile to obtain the Assembly, which in turn can be used to make the product resistant to ballistic impact, the Assembly can optionally be stabilized, for example, a local stitching or by enclosing the stack in a flexible sheath.

It was found that from the point of view of obtaining a low content of binder and particularly low content of matrix material is the advantage of using a method in which the monolayer is produced by wetting the yarn having a linear density (or titer) 500-2500 decitex with the dispersion of the matrix material and optionally a filler. Yarn with a linear density of more than 500 decitex absorbs relatively little of the material matrix of the variance. Preferably the linear density exceeds 800 decitex, more preferably more than 1000 decitex and most preferably more than 1200 decitex. Linear density preferably has a value below 2500 decitex because this yarn is easier to distribute in PL is skoti to obtain monolayer.

Preferably used aqueous dispersion of the matrix material. Aqueous dispersion has a low viscosity, which contributes to a very uniform distribution of matrix material between the fibers and the establishment of good relations between the fibers. Another advantage is that the dispersant, which is water, is not toxic and therefore can evaporate into the atmosphere. Preferably the dispersion to obtain a uniform distribution with a low content of the matrix material contains 30 to 60% by weight of the solid components (elastomeric matrix material and any present filler) of the total mass of the dispersion.

The Assembly is resistant to ballistic effects of the present invention obtained by the methods described above, shows a very good ballistic properties, expressed by the values of V50and SEA, especially at relatively low areal density. Preferably the Assembly according to the present invention has the value of the specific energy absorption (specific energy absorption, SEA) at least 300 j·m2/kg at impact bullet type FMJ Parabellum 9×19 mm (8 g). Energy absorption (EA) upon impact of a bullet or shrapnel is calculated by the kinetic energy of a bullet or shrapnel flying at a speed of V50. V50is the rate at which the probability of penetration of bullets or shrapnel through the structure is round, resistant to ballistic impact, is 50%.

The present invention more specifically relates to a flexible product that is resistant to ballistic impact, containing the Assembly of multiple sheets containing at least two monolayer consisting essentially of multifilament yarn of polyethylene high performance (NRE)having a tensile strength of at least about 1.2 GPA, and separating the porous polyethylene film, and the Assembly has the value of the areal density (AD) of at least 1.5 kg/m2and the value of the specific energy absorption (SEA) of at least 280 j·m2/kg, measured in a pool FMJ Parabellum 9×19 mm according to the test method based on Stanag 2920. Preferably the product has a value SEA at least 300, 325, 350 or even 375 j·m2/kg.

The present invention is further illustrated by the following examples, which, however, do not limit the present invention.

Preparation of fibers, NRRE

Mnogoletija beach NRRA was obtained by extrusion 8% solution (by weight) of homopolymer UITE having less than 0.3 side groups per 1000 carbon atoms and XB of 19.8 DL/g in decaline containing CIS/TRANS isomers in a ratio of from 38/62 to 42/58, which was made on the 130-mm twin-screw extruder, equipped with a gear pump at a temperature of 180aboutWith across the head with 1176 holes, with the filing of 2.2 g/min per hole. Holes had initial cylindrical channel with a diameter of 3.5 mm and a length of 18 diameter, after which the conical narrowing with a cone angle of 60°passing in a cylindrical channel with a diameter of 0.8 mm and a length of 10 diameters. Fluid filaments were cooled after passing through the air gap of 25 mm in a water bath held at a temperature of 30-40°and a flow rate of water approx. 5 cm/s perpendicular to the threads within the tub, and threads were chosen so fast to get the stretch factor 16 formed on the fiber in the air gap. Next thread is additionally stretched in the solid state in two stages: first in a furnace with a temperature gradient 110-140°and then at CA. 151�B0; With using the stretch factor in the solid state, equal to approx. 25, in this process, the yarn was evaporated decalin. The resulting yarn had a titer 930 decitex, the tensile strength of 4.1 GPA and a modulus of tensile elasticity 150 HPa.

Comparative experiment

Was made a monolayer of fibers, NRRE, as described above, by sending several fibres yarn bobbin frame, passed through the comb and wetting of the filaments of the water dispersion material Kraton® D1107 (thermoplastic elastomer block copolymer is a polystyrene-polyisoprene-polystyrene) as the matrix material. Filaments were oriented parallel to the plane and after drying the areal density of the monolayer was approx. 38 g/m2when the content of the matrix material approx. 12% by weight. Pre-molded sheet was produced by the superposition of two monolayers turn 90°and on each side as a separating layer deposited porous film of linear low density polyethylene of a thickness of 7 μm (equivalent areal density of approx. 7 g/m2), after which the monolayers and the separating film has consolidated at a pressure of approx. 0.5 MPa and a temperature of 110-115aboutC. the Polyethylene film had a yield strength of approx. 10 MPa or a safety factor of about 70 N/m

Freedom is Oh, unrelated Assembly of several pre-molded sheet was made of a flat product, resistant to ballistic impact, the Assembly was stitched at the corners. Ballistic characteristics of the three different assemblies were tested bullet type FMJ Parabellum 9×19 mm (8 g). The results V50, SEA and injuries (back face deformation) are shown in Table 1.

Example 1

A comparative experiment was repeated, but in this case, as a separating film was deposited microporous film UITE thickness of 20 μm Solupor® RA with a porosity of 83% (produced by DSM Solutech, NL). This stretched along two axes, the film had a tensile strength of approx. 12 MPa, and a tensile elongation of 13% (both in the process direction) and a safety factor of approx. 240 N/m Collected leaves can easily slide over each other, increasing the need for stabilization during further processing and testing. Flexibility stable Assembly became higher, the stack can make it easier to bend than a stack of comparative example A. it was Unexpectedly found that the observed values of V50 and hence SAE were significantly higher than in the comparative example, Whereas the rate of morbidity was not increased.

Comparative experiment b and example 2

Comparative experiment a and Example 1 was repeated, but the monolayers had plowed the Yu density approx. 39 g/m2and the contents of the matrix was approx. 15% by weight. The test results confirmed the improvement in ballistic performance sheets, made from porous separating layers (see Tab. 1).

Comparative experiment C and Example 3

Unidirectional monolayer was produced as in comparative example a, with the areal density of approx. 20 g/m2and the contents of the matrix was approx. 15% by weight. Pre-molded sheet was produced by blending 4 monolayers turn 90abouton both sides there was a plastic film 7 g/m2, and the layers are consolidated at 110-114°C. Several of these sheets were stacked in a pile, stabilized by crosslinking and tested for resistance to ballistic impact, as described above.

Example 3 pre-molded sheets contained two microporous film of 8 μm (areal density 3 g/m2and with a porosity of 63%. This inverting the film is produced by DSM Solutech, NL, and as the film Solupor® RA performed by the method according to EP 0504954 A1. Assembly, made from such sheets, showed significantly better ballistic characteristics than the samples of non-porous films, see Table. 1.

Improved performance is also shown in figure 1, where the observed values of SEA are shown relative to the areal energy density is con tested assemblies in the experiments And, In 1 and 2.
