Level III Armor:
AR500 Armor® Level III Body Armor is constructed from a proven, rugged, and reliable ballistic steel core. Rated for calibers up to 7.62x51 M80 Ball (.308) at 2,800 feet per second; our level III body armor is multi-hit capable, stress fracture resistant, and rated for stand-alone use. Level III body armor offers the most protection for your buck, and covers the most common threats one could encounter. Including nearly all Military & NATO calibers up to the threat level above. Our level III body armor provides industry leading protection against "penetrator" rounds such as the 5.56 M855/SS109 - which, put simply, can blow through UHMWPE type and similar Level III body armor options.
If you do not require protection against a very specific threat outside of level III rating, we highly suggest level III body armor due to it's superior performance against some of the most common rifle calibers in existence.
Note: Armor not in stock may take up to 8 weeks to ship as all AR500 is individually manufactured.
Note: Please note the difference between the PAXCON Base Coat and full spall & fragmentation protective Full PAAXCON Line-X Build-up Coat before purchase:
PAXCON Line-X Base Coat: Each plate goes through a 4 stage cleaning process to ensure maximum adhesion and to take full advantage of the coat. This base coat provides increased protection and offers some spall and fragmentation mitigation. The goal of the Base Coat isn’t to fully contain fragmentation, but absorb what it can and change the path after a strike outwards and away from the operator. The Base Coat is effective at this, and should be chosen to maintain a thin profile.
PAXCON Line-X Build Up: AR500 Armor also offers a Base Coat Build-Up for customers who would like increased containment of the projectile when it strikes an AR500 Armor Body Armor. The Base Coat Build Up is a unique in house method of building up the Line-X Protective Coat greatly enhancing its spall and fragmentation mitigation properties. Our Build Up Base Coat on AR500 Armor can defeat and will better contain multiple hits of 7.62x51 Military M80 ball as close as 10 yards on the strike face. The Build Up will increase the thickness of your plate to .5” and add ¾”lb.
