Simply Stronger, Thinner and lighter that the competition
Our new proprietary ballistic steel core is far stronger than the AR500 –
AR650 steel core. This core is hardened all the way through unlike the AR500 –
AR650 which is only surfaced hardened. At only 0.197 inches thick nominal makes
it 20% lighter than the AR500 and superior in strength.
Our build-up spall coating is done with a Graco EXP-2 which is the top of the
line high pressure heated coating system. Our plate core is chemically washed
and etched on the strike surface to eliminate the coating from delaminating
when shot which keeps the shrapnel from escaping from the armored assembly
We utilize a CNC laser cutting table for the cutting of all our Armor
products. If the seller of armor plate does not mention how its cut, then you
can guarantee its not by laser
There is no equal method
Plasma cutting cuts slowly, this puts a lot of heat into the steel. (
Submerged plasma cutting machine is no better) This excess heat can result in
excessive chipping and damage near the cut edge during use and easily
shattering when shot. Plasma cutting generates large amounts of heat that is
deposited into the target, softening it’s edges. Theheat-affected zone (HAZ)
generated by plasma cutting is the largest out of the most commonly used
methods for cutting abrasion resistant steel. Most AR500 is cut with plasma
cutters as they are cheap and relatively small compared to other methods.
Our Curved plate is formed on a custom laser cut die set with single radius
bend on a custom built Omron computer controlled hydraulic press guaranteeing a
perfect formed plate each time.
Here at Tactical Scorpion Gear we manufacture our own vest carriers, Kevlar
