    AR500 Armor’s Level III+ plates (see specifications below) are manufactured from AR650 steel with several features which set them apart from other armor.

    The Level III+ is able to stop 7.62x39/7.62x51/5.56 M193s, as well as 5.56 M855 penetrators and .223/.308 WIN rounds. This ability is the distinguishing quality of the Level III+. 

    Additionally, the FragLock™ Coat is a unique feature that guarantees two benefits: First, it gives a twenty-year maintenance-free shelf life - making this steel plate far outlast ceramic or polyethylene alternatives. Second, the coating mitigates the dangers of spalling (when pieces of steel fragment off) and fragmentation (when the bullet’s remains fragment off), protecting the wearer from both the direct ballistic impact and the aftermath of the impact. 

    Also, the Level III+ Steel Plates are available in right and left-handed configurations and have our patented ASC which affords you additional room for your rifle stock, improving comfort and shooting ergonomics. This shape is compatible with all standard plate carriers that accept SAPI or traditional Shooters Cut body armor, given you have an appropriate chest plate pocket size.

    Lastly, the included Trauma Pads, designed to be worn in conjunction with and behind your body armor, are a simple way to reduce the amount of energy transfer to your body, reducing felt energy through your armor and mitigating backface deformation.
