Welcome to our RTS Tactical Level IV 11x14 Ceramic Plate Insert, an Ultralight Ceramic Composite Level IV Body Armor Plate.
RTS Tactical Level IV Plate Insert provides you the operator protection against multiple .30-06 armor piercing rounds. This armored plate contains impact from multiple rounds with zero to no spalling as it is a ceramic constructed plate while keeping the backface defamation to the minimum.
From the National Institute of Justice (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.
NIJ LEVEL IV 11X14 SAPI CUT SINGLE CURVE CERAMIC ARMOR PLATE FEATURES:
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.
RTS Tactical Level IV Ceramic Hard Armor is capable of stopping 5.56mm NATO; .308 M80; 7.62x45; and up to the powerful .30-06 APM2 As per NIJ 0101.06
