In this paper, the influence of nanoclay Closite 30B on ballistic impact behavior of 2D woven E- Glass/Epoxy laminated composite has been investigated experimentally. The glass/epoxy/nanoclay hybrid laminate nanocomposites are manufactured by layup method under pressure. The nanoclay particles are Closite 30B and are dispersed into the epoxy system in a 0%, 3%, 5%, 7% and 7% ratio in weight with respect to the matrix. In additional to tensile test, ballistic impact test is carried out on the samples by flat-ended projectile with 8.9gr mass and 10mm diameter in 134m/s and 169m/s velocities. The results have shown that not only the mechanical properties, but also ballistic impact resistance can be improved with adding nanoclay.
