What are level 4 armor made out of?

Body armor plates are made out of highest grade and extremely hard and durable materials in order to withstand high energy impacts. Ace Link Armor Level IV body armor plates feature multiple layers of PE backing enhanced by ceramic edge-to-edge coverage for complete protection of all organs engineered with civilians, law enforcement as well as military personnel in mind.

The enhanced ceramic layers of an Ace Link Armor body armor plate are made out of a material called silicon carbide which has a piercing resistance that matches steel but it’s much lighter. The UHMW PE backings actually enhance the overall stopping power by dissipating the impact force. Other types of materials used in the production of body armor plates are aluminum oxide and boron carbide. The UHMW PE backing, silicon carbide, and boron carbide are combined together in order to give your level iv body armor plate increased strengthening abilities and improved retention of its shape when impacted by penetrating rounds.

The ceramic is not just simply glued onto the backings but it is part of the system that allows for better performance than ever before while retaining a lightweight package. Long story short, the best Level IV armor should be made of PE and ceramic composite.

Level 4 Side Armor Plate
These side plates shipped relatively quick. They came packaged in ample protection, no damage. I like the cover that comes on the plate too. They’re a little thick but not as thick as some I’ve seen. They fit my plate bag snuggly and have a contour that hugs me when I wear them. They’re relatively light weight and they offer level IV protection. One side benefit is that Ace link partnered with zip so I could buy now and pay installments, which is nice. With any luck I won’t have to come back to write another review on how they saved my life, but if they did, I would. Overall these were a solid purchase, I’m very pleased.
