The effect of stitching patterns on the puncture resistance of mult iple layers of Twaron fabric was investigated. Fabric samples of t wo to four fabric layers were stitched with nylon threads using vertical, d iagonal, square and diamond patterns. A conical shape probe was used in the puncture resistance tests. The load and extension needed to puncture the fabric samples were recorded. Fro m the results, the puncture loads and extensions increased as the fabric layers increased. It was found

Nevertheless, it can be said that there were no significant difference in the puncture load and extension among the different types of stitching patterns.
