The AR680 Hardened Steel armor plate is a shooter’s cut, single curve hard steel plate weighing from as low as 4 lbs to 9 lbs. The 10 x 12 in. is only 7 lbs (6.2 lbs without coating) and only 5 mm thick- an industry first. With a 25% reduction in weight we feel this steel armor is a game changer for the armor business. We’ve been able to overcome processing hurdles in bending this steel without breaking it. It has allowed us to create a truly unique plate, where most other plates are heavier and cannot withstand the same level of abuse. Normally, this type of steel is too brittle and will break under pressure of trying to make the single curve. We have hit a breakthrough in this process and can now offer this amazing new material.
The extra level of care has also been taken to prevent metal spalling by adding a Line-X base coat and build up. This makes for an extremely well designed, and balanced plate which is already shattering records and expectations. The 1 ¼ lb. build up is what is required for maximum protection from spalling and brings total plate weight to 7 lbs.
