This work demonstrates the synergy between the thermo-mechanical and humidity induced degradation as well as the oxidation reactions in the kink-banded areas of ultra-high molar mass polyethylene (UHMMPE) fiber-based laminates used in body armor. For aged materials, the energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) results reveal high concentrations of oxygen containing products, and the EPR results demonstrate the presence of the peroxyl radicals (RO2 • ) in the kink-banded areas. After one year of dark ambient storage, very long-lived RO2 • radicals were observed primarily in the samples exposed to ageing conditions of elevated temperatures, humidity, and mechanical stress. The total percentage of crystallinity, as measured by differential scanning calorimetry, of the kinkbanded fibers was unchanged, indicating that the degradation occurs primarily in the amorphous region, and may also involve recrystallization processes of the degraded chains. However, the most abundant orthorhombic crystalline phase decreases from 77 % to 70 %. This decrease in the orthorhombic structure leads to more diffusion of oxygen into the kink-banded region, enhancing the oxidation processes. No changes are observed in the monoclinic phase of the kinked fibers, which remained constant and constituted ~2 % of the total crystallinity.
