Abstract: Abstract – the aim of this paper to study bulletproof vest. The material Kevlar, spectra shield, twaron are used in making bulletproof vest. History of armors used in many countries. Making of Kevlar and by using it making of bulletproof vest. Study and classification of bulletproof vests - Type I, Type IIA, Type II, Type IIIA, Type III, Type IV. Quality control and tests for vest like fiber and yarn tensile strength, the tensile strength of the resultant cloth Spectra is also tested for tensile strength by the manufacturer. Bulletproof vests are tested both wet and dry. This is done because the fibers used to make a vest perform differently when wet. Tests for check quality of jacket A. Ballistic testing V50 and V0 B. Military testing: fragment ballistics. We can improve performance by using grapheme. It can absorb more impact of bullet as compare to Kevlar. UHMWPE (Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene).Recently a new fabric developed at the University of California which can make sweat away from our skin. Bullet proof vest must be durable so Cordura can be used .for waterproofing we can use Gore-tex. Dyneema is a waterproof material if we use we can make light weight bulletproof vest as it doesn’t require waterproofing.
Keywords: Keywords – Kevlar, spectra, twaron, UHMWPE, Dyneema
