This research deals with the investigation of the self-healing behavior after ballistic damage of ethylene-methacrylic acid ionomers and theirs blends with epoxidized natural rubber (ENR). The self-healing capability was studied by ballistic puncture tests under different experimental conditions as sample thickness, bullet speed, diameter and shape. Bullet speed ranging from few hundreds meters per second to few km/s were employed. The healing efficiency was evaluated by applying a pressure gradient trough the plates and by checking for possible flow at the damage zone. A morphology analysis of the impact area was made observing all samples by scanning electron microscope.

Abstract

This research deals with the investigation of the self-healing behavior after ballistic damage of ethylene-methacrylic acid ionomers and theirs blends with epoxidized natural rubber (ENR). The self-healing capability was studied by ballistic puncture tests under different experimental conditions as sample thickness, bullet speed, diameter and shape. Bullet speed ranging from few hundreds meters per second to few km/s were employed. The healing efficiency was evaluated by applying a pressure gradient trough the plates and by checking for possible flow at the damage zone. A morphology analysis of the impact area was made observing all samples by scanning electron microscope.
