Level lV ALSC: Stand-alone rifle-rated plate is designed to bring the highest level of personal protection to the consumer. Our latest product developed 100% in-house, stops military .30 caliber armor-piercing rounds.
There are two general types of body armor, and several different materials used to make it:
Both soft armor panels and hard armor plates are worn in a non-ballistic carrier designed for carrying armor. The carriers themselves do not provide any protection against bullets.
FragLock™ Coating, available in both Base Coat and Build-Up Coat versions, is a feature of AR500 Armor plates that protects both the user and the plate itself. It protects the user by helping either capture or deflect fragmentation (a bullet’s fragments after impact) and spalling (the armor’s fragments after impact). The Build-Up Coat is a thicker seal which does this better than the Base Coat, although both do it to a degree. The FragLock™ also protects the plate by sealing it from the elements, which could otherwise corrode the plate. With either version of the FragLock™ Coating, this plate has a shelf life of twenty years and requires no maintenance.
