It has also been tested to stop some special threats; it will defeat 5.56x45 M193 at 3150 FPS and 7.62x39 AK-47 at 2380 FPS. Polyethylene stops threats by "capturing" the bullet in its material- the heat of the spinning bullet softens the polyethylene enough to melt it partially, allowing the bullet into the material, where it then is stopped by the remaining unmelted fibers within the plate. As the bullet slows down, the polyethylene then rehardens.Because of its unique way of stopping bullets, polyethylene is able to take multiple hits without shattering like ceramic plate alternatives. The primary benefit of the P2 plate, however, is its weight: Only PE hard armor can provide rifle-rated protection at under four pounds. The greater activity this allows makes polyethylene a popular choice for some military personnel. As with our other hard armor options, the P2 armor is also sprayed with our FragLockT solution to seal it from the elements. Material: Polyethylene, with FragLockT Coating.
