"AR500 Armor launched its own line of ballistic armor and body armor solutions in 2012. We entered the industry with the mindset of manufacturing top quality, reliable products that offered our customers high value solutions. With our unique in-house manufacturing processes and ability to acquire material made to our specifications, we’ve set the standard for ballistic steel core body armor. Utilizing industry leading spall and fragmentation mitigation coatings we've further increased what's possible with ballistic steel. All AR500 Armor solutions are manufactured 100% in the USA!"
Multi-Hit, Stand-Alone, & Stab Resistant
Within the rated calibers AR500 Armor® Body Armor typically performs well above the industry standard in being multi-hit capable. Alternatives such as Ceramic and other ballistic fabric from respected manufacturers become compromised to a much greater extent when sustaining impact on the strike face. Often loosing material and becoming useless after just a few rounds. AR500 Armor®, because of our advanced steel core, loses very little material after impact on the strike face. Our method of mitigating spall and fragmentation rely on our exterior protective coating, and not the armor’s backbone, the steel core. This aids in longevity and greatly enhances our body armor’s Multi-Hit capability.
