AR500 Armor

AR500 A1 Plate 10" x 12" Build Up Coat

Item #: AR-A1-10X12-BLD

The A1 body armor is able to stop Level III+ threats such as 7.62x39 / 7.62x51 / 5.56 M193s, 5.56 M855 penetrators, and .223/.308 WIN rounds. And unlike ceramic or polyethylene, this custom steel alloy blend is able to take several hits from these rounds without fail. This multi-hit special threat resistance is the distinguishing quality of the A1 plate. The plate is curved, shooters cut and features our FragLock Coat, which we apply for two reasons: It helps reduce the dangers of spalling (when broken pieces of steel come off the plate) and fragmentation (when a bullet’s remains bounce off the plate), protecting you from the aftermath of a bullet’s impact once it has been stopped. The coat gives our plates a maintenance-free shelf life of twenty years, which makes this steel plate last much longer than polyethylene or ceramic alternatives. The Base Coat, which all our plates come with by default, is lighter and thinner with less protection, while the Build-Up Coat can be added for greater protection but also slightly more weight.
