SB166 HPPE bulletproof fabric / UHMWPE UD is made from >43cN/dtex (>48g/D) UHMWPE fiber and main for soft bulletproof vest application. It is using 6 plies Uni-Directional (0/90/0/90/0/90 UD) structure which is well known best for anti-ballistic fabrics today. The weight per square meter for 7.62x25mm TT lead core @ 445m/s protection only needs ~4kg after tested.

Soft Bulletproof Vest
The bulletproof fabric is made from high-strength UHMWPE fiber with a Uni-Directional (UD) structure. The high-strength UHMWPE fiber has good performance when against the impact of the high velocity of bullets and, the UD structure can transfers the power quickly than women fabric in a short time.

That has different using of UHMWPE UD bulletproof fabric and main for making bulletproof soft armor vest when used together with anti-trauma foam. It is easy to cut by laser or another professional cutter. And can add more layers than the minimum to reduce deformation if required. Below are reference layers or area densities of SB166 for some protected levels. For more, see How to make a bulletproof vest?
