AR550 body armor is one of the strongest materials that we currently sell.
NIJ Level III BALLISTIC BODY ARMOR with top of the line hardness and threat protection.

Our AR550 body armor is special threat tested up to level III+ and our AR550 plates are NIJ .06 certified Level III are designed to stop six spaced hits of 7.62x51mm NATO FMJ M80 at a velocity of ~2780 ft/s.Level III+ is a designation that the body armor industry has adopted to show the capabilities of armor beyond the NIJ Level III testing. This indicates that the plate can withstand higher velocity rifle rounds.

The NIJ intends to address this gap between Ballistic Level III and Level IV in establishing the RF2 category of the 0101.07 standard.

The 550 rating refers to its scores on the Brinell hardness test, which designates the level of quality that the steel possesses. Generally speaking, anything above 500 is considered to be incredibly good.

So if you’re looking to buy body armor and you want advanced rifle rated threat protection at a budget friendly price then we highly suggest our AR550 armor plates.

AR500 vs AR550 Body Armor
AR500 steel has been used as an armor plate source by the military, armored car companies, security contractors, and elite body armor manufacturers. This tempered steel was designed to be used in combat situations that will experience severe impact and abrasion. AR550 steel is even stronger and more durable than AR500 steel,

AR550 body armor has a core hardness of approximately 545-560 BHN, which is perfect for defeating higher velocity threats. If you’re looking to buy body armor with advanced rifle-rated threat protection at a budget-friendly price, AR550 body armor plates may be your best bet.

What Impacts Can AR550 Withstand?
Our AR550 body armor can withstand impacts from a lead centerfire weapon traveling at 3200 FPS or less, at a distance of 100 yards. It can also handle impacts from much closer, and we have tested these on several occasions. Our AR550 has withstood impacts from just 10 feet, with munitions traveling at 3100-3200 FPS, and this body armor system performed well even after several rounds had been emptied into it.

It is also rated to withstand handgun fire from any safe distance, making it one of the best armors for law enforcement, private security, or other first responders. So if you’re looking for the best armor and the highest level of protection, the AR550 body armor is the one for you!
