Abstract : The objective of this project is to develop a high tenacity nylon 6 yarn with a strength of 12 grams per denier for use in body armor applications. Work has been continued with the same normal molecular weight Plaskon 8201 resin, but a number of changes in equipment and procedure have been made. As a result small samples of nylon 6 multifilament yarn have been spun and drawn which have tenacities substantially higher than previously obtained.
