We studied the strength of the individual threads in the longitudinal and transverse rupture, the state of threads, as well as the strength of a single layer of aramid fabric exposed to the piercing influence of the conical indenter. Materials used in the experiments: special high molecular material of the brand DZh (SHMM-DZh) and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWP). It is found that the effect of electromagnetic field on the aramid threads and fabrics based on them, as well as the threads made of UMWP increases the tensile strength at 2 and 1.6-1.7 times respectively. Aramid fabric puncture resistance in the delivery state and in the wet state, after exposure to the electromagnetic field increases by 1.7-1.8 times. A significant reduction of the fiber bundle processed in the electromagnetic field of aramid fibers and UHMWP after exposure to tensile load was ascertained.
