Body Armor IIIA 2 HDPE Plates III

Body Armor IIIA 2 HDPE Plates Level III

The Body Armor IIIA 2 HDPE Plates III, is a Body Armor Vest for police and civil uses.  For instance, this vest has Level IIIA protection panels, and inside on the frontal and backside pockets to insert HDPE plates.

The Body Armor IIIA 2 HDPE Plates III is designed and manufactured for the best protection of the wearer while keeping it comfortable for wearing while on duty or during everyday activities. In addition, this vest comes with 2 HDPE plates level III (3). Allows for maximum versatility.

HDPE is known for its large strength-to-density ratio. The density of HDPE can range from 0.93 to 0.97 g/cm3 or 970 kg/m3. Although the density of HDPE is only marginally higher than that of low-density polyethylene, HDPE has little branching, giving it stronger intermolecular forces and tensile strength than LDPE.

Therefore, the difference in strength exceeds the difference in density, giving HDPE a higher specific strength. It is also harder and more opaque and can withstand somewhat higher temperatures (120 °C/ 248 °F for short periods). High-density polyethylene, unlike polypropylene, cannot withstand normally required autoclaving conditions.

Design:

      • The vest is assembled on the front and back parts made possible to split. For instance, a flexible system of fixing by shoulder bands and waist flaps with Hook & loop fasteners.
      • The vest has 2 inner pockets, one on the front and one on the rear side of the vest for additional ballistic panels of full-face stand-alone level III.
      • The design of the vest makes it possible to remove ballistic protection panels hard plates for cleaning a vest.
