Only a comfortable protective clothing is also worn and only models with low weight provide acceptable wearing comfort. Protective textiles made of extremely thin and lightweight reinforcing fiber layers provide both lightness and protection. Two of each, with 0° and 90° fiber orientation, form a stable composite called a cross-ply, several of which are stacked to form layer packs. The number of cross-ply layers was determined by the required protective effect. Only the arrangement of the sensitive layers in a double pack enables handling for further converting. In addition, quality losses are avoided, especially with regard to the distribution homogeneity of the finely spread polymer fibers.
