FAQ: The How & Why of AR500 Armor® Level IV Body Armor

After years of development and research, we were aiming for a more robust and rugged option than what is currently being offered. That said, with any ceramic/composite armor system, multiple rounds in a small vicinity will degrade the strike face reducing performance on subsequent shots on that section of the plate, unlike our Steel Armor. The strike face plays a critical role in causing the bullet to deform, and tumble, allowing the composite backing to catch and stop the round.

Since we did venture away from steel on this offering, we wanted to chime in on the "Why". The reason for this was weight, cost, & performance. When attempting to defeat 30.06 M2AP rounds, the required thickness of steel adds enough weight and cost to the point of ceramic becoming a viable and very effective solution (with current technology). Simply put, a steel level IV solution in 10" x 12" would weigh nearly 13lb's per plate.

We feel we have one of the more rugged and durable level IV options available, for ceramic/composite construction. Designed to defeat a single round of 30.06 Black Tip M2AP, and any lesser rifle round per NIJ standards. We aim to over deliver on our armor, and with reasonable shot placement, have stopped multiple rounds of M2AP.

We want to make sure our views are clear as we foresee a few questions as to why we ventured away from steel for our level IV armor solution. Our mission is simple. Put out the most reliable, high-quality product we are capable of producing at a reasonable price. Anything less than that and we won't even consider putting it into production.

Simply put, if 30.06 M2AP is not a concern, our Level III solution provides above average protection within the realm of level III threats.
