This research investigated the ballistic resistance of p-Aramid fabric. Plain woven aramid fabrics were prepared to produce bulletproof vest having 5 kg of 32 fabric layers. The performance of the multilayer aramid fabrics in terms of ballistic resistance was evaluated by ballistic testing with the difference types of bullet. The damage of the fabric and the indentation of modeling clay behind the target were examined. The results showed that vests prepared from 18 - 32 fabric layers exhibited the ballistic resistance; the more the fabric layer the more the resistance performance. In addition, the indentation of the modeling clay decreased drastically from 150.2 mm to 23.5 mm. The resistance performance was found dependent on layers of the fabric and bullet type.
