Your choice of Level III AR500 or Lightweight Level III+ steel core armor plates.
We are Compliant with all NIJ standards so dont pay more for lesser quality products.
Our new proprietary steel core is far stronger than the AR500 - AR650 steel core. This core is hardened all the way through unlike the AR500 - AR650 which is only surfaced hardened. At only 0.197 inches thick nominal makes it 20% lighter than the AR500 and superior in strength.
Our build-up spall coating is done with a Graco EXP-2 which is the top of the line high pressure heated coating system. Our plate core is chemically washed and etched on the strike surface to eliminate the coating from delaminating when shot which keeps the shrapnel from escaping from the armored assembly
** This model complies with NIJ Standard-0101.06 for Ballistic resistance of Body Armor.**
We utilize a CNC laser cutting table for the cutting of all our Steel core products. If the seller of armor plate does not mention how its cut, then you can guarantee its not by laser There is no equal method
Plasma cutting cuts slowly, this puts a lot of heat into the steel. ( Submerged plasma cutting machine is no better) This excess heat can result in excessive chipping and damage near the cut edge during use and easily shattering when shot. Plasma cutting generates large amounts of heat that is deposited into the target, softening it's edges. The heat-affected zone (HAZ) generated by plasma cutting is the largest out of the most commonly used methods for cutting abrasion resistant steel. Most AR500 is cut with plasma cutters as they are cheap and relatively small compared to other methods.
