Abstract Scope The increasing awareness around the world of the urgent need to reduce the use of non-degradable synthetic materials, and the disposing problem of ballistic vests and helmets have driven research into new, more socio-environmentally sustainable materials for ballistic application. In this context, natural lignocellulosic fibers (LNFs) can be promising options because they are socio and ecofriendly and have specific mechanical properties comparable to commonly used synthetic fibers, in addition to being significantly cheaper. Thus, as the objective of evaluating the effect of hybridization of curaua fibers (Ananas Erectifolius) with aramid fibers in epoxy composites for ballistic helmets, ballistic impact tests were performed with 9mm FMJ Luger projectile. The projectile velocity was varied round to round by adjusting the propellant mass. The velocities immediately before and after the impact were measured with a Doppler Radar Antenna combined with a computer in order to estimate and compare the composites ballistic limit.
