What is AR500 steel and why is it used?

AR500 is a tempered steel that is commonly used in situations to prevent or reduce damage from severe impacts and abrasions. The "AR" in the name stands for "Abrasion Resistant," and the 500 refers to the Brinell Hardness. This is a scale that characterizes the indentation hardness of materials using a scan of penetration.

It is one of several definitions of hardness used in materials science. The higher the Brinell rating, the harder and more resistant the steel. AR500 is a material that has been used by the military, armored car companies, and several body armor manufacturers and retailers such as ourselves.

What kind of impacts can Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 Body Armor plates withstand?

Our AR500 targets and plates can withstand impacts from weapon fire traveling at 3200 FPS or less from 100 yards.
