This bulletproof plate is made from Famostone, an ultra-light ballistic hard armour that is considerably lighter than any other body armouring material available in the world today.
The high strength Polyethylene fibre used has been shown to be 10 times stronger than steel, making it the strongest and lightest fibre in the world today. The material is waterproof and outperforms all other armour materials in stopping high velocity rounds.
Famostone outperforms NIJ level III, which will stop 7.62 and 5.56 (AK47 and M16) and all lesser rounds, which is why it has been classed as NIJ level III+. This will stop as many rounds as can fit on the plate and at 1.6kg each this is the undoubtedly the lightest bulletproof plate around that offers such a high level of protection.
