Abstract:

The development of low-cost organic/inorganic puncture-resisting composites is suggested to improve their puncture resistance and thermal insulation properties. In this paper, recycled high modulus Kevlar fiber and glass fabric were used together with polyester/lowmelting polyester nonwovens. The result shows that the static puncture resistance improves proportionally with Kevlar fibers; but the dynamic puncture resistance remains the same at first and then rises up to 20 wt % for Kevlar fibers. The increasing low-melting polyester fibers on the surface result in an upward and then downward trend for both static and dynamic puncture resistances. The additional polyester/low-melting polyester nonwovens are beneficial for the improvement of puncture resistances. Moreover the thermal conductivity of all the composites is in range of 0.015-0.025 W/m·K. According to the results, Kevlar fibers are also shown to be advisable reinforcement to achieve better tensile and bursting strengths.
