BODY ARMOR 101: HOW IT'S MADE:
HERCULES LEVEL IV CERAMIC BODY ARMOR
Have you ever wondered, "How is body armor made?" In this Body Armor 101 segment we take a look at the process for manufacturing our Level IV Ceramic Body Armor, the Hercules Plates. From raw materials to the finished product ready to be shipped.
It all starts with our boron carbide strikeface, on top of a UHMWPE backer. All encased in a waterproof covering. Then emblazened with the notorious Spartan Armor Systems® logo on the front.
