- This study reports the ballistic impact performance of sandwich panel consisting of Kevlar woven fabric and recycled materials, namely, titanium chips. Aluminium foam and honeycomb structures are well known lightweight materials for energy absorption typically used in crash worthiness application. Titanium is also a lightweight material compared with steel, however it possesses much higher energy absorption capabilities than aluminium. The enhancement of Kevlar woven fabric in titanium chips further strengthens sandwich panel especially in ballistic impact performance. The arrangement of Kevlar woven fabric had a significant effect on the overall energy absorption of the panel. Similarly. bonding of the titanium chips with a polymeric material is crucial for the overall ballistic performance. The result of this study demonstrated a new composite material could be an alternative compared with the conventional aluminium foam and honeycomb sandwich panel.
