The Bullet Proof Vest Using Carbon Nano Tubes Report conclude that a revolutionary use of carbon nano-technology in manufacturing bulletproof vests and materials.
Carbon nanotubes are one of the most important applications of nanotechnology. Carbon nanotubes are allotropes of carbon. They are so many possibilities. Among them, individual nanotubes are more important. A carbon nanotube is a graphite one atom thick, to provide a seamless cylinder with a diameter in the order of one nanometer rolled form. This results are nanostructure where the length-diameter ratio of more than 1,000,000. They have extraordinary strength and unique electrical properties. The inherent elasticity of the property has recovered property display. The nano-tubes are produced quickly by spraying a carbon source such as ethanol, and an iron nano catalyst by a hydrogen carrier, and in a furnace at 1200 degrees Celsius. The size of the nano-tube is in the order of a few nanometers, Nano tubes will be categorized as primarily single-walled nanotubes and multi-walled nanotubes. Among them are single-walled tubes will be used for bulletproof vests, which can be used primarily for military applications.
Bullet-proof vests are being woven through the carbon nano-fibers, which are made up of millions of tiny carbon nanotubes starting point for exciting features revealed. A new bullet-proof material is designed and actually re bounds the force of a bullet. Bulletproof materials at the moment are designed to spread the force. The lightweight fiber, that starts from millions of tiny carbon nanotubes to reveal exciting properties of light to fiber. The fiber is very strong, lightweight and easy to absorb energy in the form of fragments at high speed. So it can be used as body amour.
The report conclude that a revolutionary use of carbon nano-technology in manufacturing bulletproof vests and materials, the concept of the wearer, such as police and the armed forces in a remarkable way, not only blunt the power to change the armed attacker , but also destroying retaliation against them.
