    What is your protective application? What are you protecting against? If you are trying to protect a surface exposed to hard UV rays the answer will be different than if you are trying to protect a surface from moisture.

    i'm focus on polymer dispersion based shear thickening fluid-fabric for protection application... such as sport pads n body armor........

    but i was not used neat kevlar for the fabric but i want used neat nylon n cotton.....
    even i know the strength of the kevlar is slightly higher than nylon n cotton.....
    in the malaysia,,,buy the excellent kevlar for my thesis is impossible because of the its price.......

    so, what do u think chemistree...... i needs a guide from u for doing right thing in my thesis......
