The tenacity at breaking is key performance value of UHMWPE fiber. It is very important for high quality ballistic fabric and high-strength products.
Today, the tenacity of UHMWPE fiber has over 40cN/dtex (45g/D) for ballistic fabric application.
The area density per square meter is key performance value of ballistic fabric. It is very important for making lightweight body armor.
Today, the area density has only 4.5kg per square meter for NIJ 0101.06 level IIIA soft armor protection.
