Level 3+ plates are manufactured from a proprietary steel reaching Brinnell Hardness ratings in 600 - 630 Laser cut Simply Stronger, Thinner and lighter than the competition 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 Tactical Scorpion Gear 10 mm Trauma Pad Custom made , computer cut on triple axis CNC router machine to perfectly match our armor plate Will absorb the impression of any projectile impact onto the armor plate protecting your ribs from the compression ** 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.

This was the material that we started from and have the most experience with. We’ve seen it, done it, we’ve improved it. Steel Body Armor provides great protection that can stop multiple projectile hits. We have been working with different levels of abrasion resistant (AR) ballistic steel for years and have not found a better product than our AR550 Steel Body Armor Plates. This armor is rated at a level III+ as it can defeat special threats like M855 rounds. All of our steel plates come in one ergonomic curve option. We have worked with LE and first responders to design a curve that you can be comfortable wearing. We provide this at no additional cost. What is unique about the way that we bend our steel is important too. We have designed a press that creates a multi curve bend in ONE step. Why is this important? When you do multiple bends to achieve a multi curve, it puts extra strain on the plate which can weaken it. We have replicated the same curves that you have seen in multi curve ceramic armor for years. Our aggressive Shooters Cut body armor plates shaves off weight while still providing enough coverage to protect your vital organs. Use our CaliberX™ Soft Armor Backers for even more protection and comfort. Our standard AR550 plate comes coated to protect the plate from rust and the elements. One concern with Steel Armor is fragmentation containment. Some of that fragmentation is contained in the armor’s plate carrier, but there still is a risk of lethal shrapnel. We HIGHLY recommend our Caliber Anti-Spall add on. We have teamed up with our friends at Bullet Liner® to formulate an anti-spall coating specifically for our armor application. This addition to your steel plate gives you peace of mind when wearing steel armor.
