Natural Lignocellulosic Fibers (NLFs) has been studied as a possible compound of Multilayered Armor System (MAS) when used as reinforcement in polymeric matrix composite. Among the NLFs, the Buriti fiber (“Mauritia Flexuosa”) is a highlight due to its mechanical properties such as tensile and flexural strength. Therefore, the use of these Buriti fibers as fabrics inan epoxy composite is a promising candidate for ballistic against applications a high velocity 7.62 mm ammunition as an intermediate layers in the MAS. Composites reinforced with 10 vol% were evaluated and compared with aramid fabric as well as with other NLFs composites commonly used as second layer in the MAS. It was observed that the conditions studied exhibit a surprising behavior. Any of the samples were perforated after the ballistic impact. Moreover the measured indentation depth is much lower than the maximum predicted by the international standart NIJ 0101.04.
