CompositesWorld’s Digital Demo Shows How T-Link™ Expands Design and Processability for Armor While Providing Better Performance by Weight

This month, the media brand CompositesWorld shares on its Digital Demos page how T-Link™ can be used to create lightweight composite structures that empower performance with processibility in armor applications.

CompositesWorld’s Digital Demos are on-demand videos or webinars that share information on new products and technologies that have been developed for the composite industry.

Being an advanced, versatile thermoplastic matrix resin, T-Link™ can be extruded into multiple forms including film, veil and yarn.

T-Link™ film and veil are dry to the touch for easy handling and are ideal for layering with fiber reinforcement layers.

The yarn form is coated with T-Link™ resin for consistent and precise content. T-Link™ yarn is available in three different grades and is also ideal for layering. A key datapoint highlighted in the Digital Demo is the fact that T-Link™ yarn provides 12.6% better ballistics performance by weight compared to Detail Specification MIL-DTL-62474F defined aramid composites. This can be beneficial for applications such as:

  • Hard body armor
  • Vehicle armor
  • Protective shields
  • Headborne protection

 

Characteristics of T-Link™ include:

  • High strength, rigidity, and toughness
  • Short cycle times needed for bonding
  • Can be stored at room temperature
  • Transparent and pigmentable
  • Fully thermoplastic
  • Recyclable
  • Repairable, formable
  • Debonding, healing capability
