Contoured needle zone needlepunch technoloogy has been effectively used to develop a next-to-skin friendly three-component antiballistic chest shield. Bovine leather has been used as the outer layer in the antiballistic composite. Antiballistic properties were achieved with the help of the multilayered high-density polyethylene filament woven fabrics. The objective of this study was to understand the frictional properties of the individual components of the three-component multilayered antiballistic composite. The surface mechanical properties of these individual components affect the adhesion of the individual components and the resulting composite formation. Frictional properties have been characterized using a novel normalized friction factor, R.
