From the NIJ website:
5.56mm ammunition designed for military use, with a steel or partial steel core, needs a ceramic or metallic component to the hard armor plate to stop it. Some Level III have a ceramic/metallic face, but not all. If you have identified the M855 or other similarly designed steel core ammunition as a potential threat, a Level IV plate is the best choice for protection."
Ceramic plates are known to stop high-velocity 5.56mm rounds including the green tip 62gr SS109. Don't get stuck with a Lightweight Polyethylene or other NIJ Level III inserts where fast 5.56mm rounds can slice right through. The NIJ Level III Standard protects the user from the bigger 7.62x51mm round, however, they can have a hard time stopping the thinner and faster 5.56mm round. With a Ceramic core The RTS Active Shooter Kit features protection from larger 7.62x51mm as well as faster 5.56mm round.
Your RTS Tactical Ceramic Level IV plate is constructed out of small squares of ceramic, by constructing the plate in that manner, it gives this plate the ability to be a multi-hit plate. If one square gets shot the rest of the plate is still intact.
When it comes to ceramic armor, spalling is kept to the bare minimum compared to steel which would need an upgraded spall coating to contain the fragmentation.
This Level IV ceramic plate has a waterproof polyurea coating which gives the plate a long-lasting ballistic integrity, as well as an upgraded foam face giving you extra protection in case the plate were to fall on the ground.
This Level IV body armor insert is capable of stopping multiple AP rounds by itself. Level IIIA backing panels are not required.
