III Flat Rifle Plate
by 18" (32 X 46 cm.) of Ultra-light Polyethylene
plate, instead of Level III-A to stop .308 FMJ and lesser
010801 Standard (plate armor not Body Armor)
~ 6.3 lbs (2.9 kg.) complete with Rifle Plate
warning most Polyethylene / Ultra-light Rifle vendors neglect
plate is manufactured on an ISO-certified production line, but
you should know that the ballistic performance of all Polyethylene
may be adversely affected, or permanently reduced, by prolonged
exposure to ambient temperatures below ~ MINUS 15°F ( - 26 °Celsius)
and over 150 °F (65 ° Celsius).
plates must never be exposed to open flame, excessive direct
sunlight, UV exposure or any hot surface. Heat damage to the
external surface (e.g., melting) is a visual clue that the plate
may have been exposed to elevated temperatures. If damage is
found, replace the plate.
take any chances by leaving your Rifle Plates in extremely cold
or hot environments, OR letting them "cook" in the
sun, for example:
- a closed
vehicle super-heating in the sun
- an engine
on asphalt in intense sun
of metal baking in the sun, etc., etc.
it's too hot for your body, DON'T LEAVE YOUR RIFLE PLATES THERE!
