Certifications, Independent, and In house testing

All AR500 Armor finished products are subject to extensive ballistic testing. This includes independent lab testing pre and post manufacturing, from its raw form to a completed product, and in house batch testing. Independent lab tests are performed by the most reputable independent ballistic test laboratory in the United States, HP White Laboratory, Inc. Our Level III Body Armor is tested to NIJ-STD-0101.06 Level III Calibers (Military Ball), Shot Placement and Deformation standards. Testing to the same and more extensive standards is also performed in-house in our Phoenix, Arizona manufacturing facility.

Level III Body Armor is designed to offer protection against rifle calibers up to 7.62x51 NATO M80 Ball / .308 Winchester at velocities up to 2,780 feet per second.

       AR500 Armor tests our level III body armor with the following calibers:

  • Pistol Calibers: .22LR, 9mm, .40 S&W, 45 ACP, 10mm, .357 Magnum, and .44 Magnum
  • Rifle Calibers: .223/5.56 (M855 62g Penetrators), 7.62x39, 7.62x51 (M80 Ball), .308 Winchester, 12 Gauge 3” Magnum 00 Buck, and 12 Gauge 1oz Slugs
  • Platforms include a variety of Handguns, Pistol Caliber Rifles, and Rifles to obtain a wide variety of velocities for a given round

Third party testing has been performed with calibers up to 5.56 XM193, 7.62x54R, 30.06, 6.5 Creedmore, and .338 Lapua Magnum. Results with higher calibers may vary as they are typically over the threshold of Level III rated armor.

It is also important to note than nothing is “Bulletproof”, there are many variables at play which determine a given type of armors effectiveness. It is equally important to understand that even if body armor prevents penetration; preventing injury or death cannot be guaranteed.


AR500 Armor now Offers the Option of Paxcon Line-X Build up!


PAXCON Line-X Base Coat: The Base Coat is what all AR500 Armor ships with (free of charge). Each plate goes through a 4 stage cleaning process to ensure maximum adhesion and to take full advantage of the coat. This base coat provides increased protection and offers some spall and fragmentation mitigation. The goal of the Base Coat isn’t to fully contain fragmentation, but absorb what it can and change the path after a strike outwards and away from the operator. The Base Coat is effective at this, and should be chosen to maintain a thin profile.

PAXCON Line-X Build Up: AR500 Armor also offers a Base Coat Build-Up for customers who would like increased containment of the projectile when it strikes an AR500 Armor Body Armor. The Base Coat Build Up is a unique in house method of building up the Line-X Protective Coat greatly enhancing its spall and fragmentation mitigation properties. Our Build Up Base Coat on AR500 Armor can defeat and will better contain multiple hits of 7.62x51 Military M80 ball as close as 10 yards on the strike face. The Build Up will increase the thickness of your plate to .5” and add ¾”lb.

This is a $50 upgrade that will be added automatically if you select it
