BODY ARMOR 101: BODY ARMOR SPALL &
FRAGMENTATION - FACT VS FICTION
In this Body Armor 101 segment we explore the topic of spall and fragmentation as it relates to steel core body armor. While spall is a reality of uncoated steel body armor plates, there are mitigation options to limit the possibilities of spall such as our full coat of Encapsaloc™ fragmentation mitigation coating and our Spall Containment Sleeves. Steel core body armor is a safe and effective means of protection when configured properly.
