Plate Size: 10" x 12" - Two curved plates. There are many online videos documenting the strength and reliability of our armor plates as our plates can take far more punishment than they are rated for and when your well-being is at risk, you should not take chances with lesser quality body armor. 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 AR500 plate 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. We utilize a CNC laser cutting table for the cutting of all our AR500 products. There is no equal method. Lasma 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 steel, softening it's edges.
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 laser cutting. Our Curved plate is bent on a laser cut custom die set with single radius bend which provides a perfect radius on each and every plate we produce, not bent multiple times on a press brake which provides uncontrollable results.
