1. Ballistic-resistant molded article comprising a compressed stack of monolayers, with each monolayer containing unidirectionally oriented reinforcing fibers being high-drawn fibers of high-molecular-weight linear polyethylene and at most 20 wt. % of a plastic matrix material and with the fiber direction in each monolayer being rotated with respect to the fiber direction in an adjacent monolayer, the monolayers having a fiber weight between 25 and 150 g/m2, and wherein the density (ρ

  • p) of the compressed stack is at least 98.0% of the theoretical maximum density.
