Abstract. There are many things in our surroundings that are at risk of explosion (e.g. lithium ion batteries, power modules, spray cans etc.), and there is a possibility of causing great damage to the surroundings due to explosive fragments. For safe operation of them, it is essential to establish a way to protect the surroundings from explosive fragments. In this study, the purpose is to develop a compact container protecting the surroundings from explosive fragments. Ultra-High Molecular Weight polyethylene (UHMW) which is excellent in strength against explosive and penetrationof fragments was used for container, and Dyneema string or Zylon string were wound around the container for suppressing deformation. In order to observe a deformation of containers due to explosion, containers were blown up by explosives, and taken by high speed camera. Experimental results showed that the supporting strings are available for suppressing deformation.
