Simply Stronger, Thinner and lighter that the competition. Our new proprietary ballistic 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. We utilize a CNC laser cutting table for the cutting of all our Armor products.
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 its 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. Our Curved plate is formed on a custom laser cut die set with single radius bend on a custom built Omron computer controlled hydraulic press guaranteeing a perfect formed plate each time.
