Prime Armor’s NIJ 0101.06 Level IV (Model #1022) rifle plate is designed to withstand rugged usage without compromising the ballistic capability of the plate. The Level IV is multi-hit .30-06 M2AP tested by an NIJ-certified laboratory and can defeat M2AP rounds as well 7.62x54R – B32 API including US Military’s new M855A1 rifle round and many other threats!
It took us a long time and many ballistic tests to create the special ceramic lineup for our Level IV (Model #1022) armor. This design is extremely strong, will withstand multiple hits, and is still very lightweight. Due to the construction of the Prime Armor’s plate the ceramic cracks only in a 1-1.5 inch radius after a ballistic impact. This is why our plate is multi-hit capable and a much safer option than other brands. Strike face ceramic covers 95% of the surface of the plate.
Other conventional body armor plates use a monolithic ceramic strike face and when hit by an M2AP or any other heavy round results in ‘spiderweb’ cracks across the plate. This type of cracking greatly reduces the plate’s ability to defeat multiple rounds. Some competitors’ body armor plates are rated only for 1 hit of M2AP.
This multi-hit capability along with the strength and lightweight makes our Level IV ballistic body armor product a great choice for Military, Law Enforcement, Private Security, and of course Fellow Civilian Americans who are looking for the highest quality at a reasonable cost.
Last but not least, this rifle-rated armor is backed with our strong 10-year warranty on ballistic components.
