NIJ 06 Certified Level IV Swimmer Plates (26605)



The 26605 is a Triple-curve hard armor, Multi-Hit, Stand Alone, Swimmer plate certified under the NIJ 0101.06 Level IV Standard.. Manufactured from high-density alumina ceramic core (Al2O3) backed with layered polymer composite fiber and finished in a black Cordura Nylon Covering. A foam pad is affixed to the Strike-Face in order to protect against severe drops. NIJ standards require 2 drops. These plates must pass the internal 10 drop test and are inspected via X-Ray prior to environmental and ballistic testing.

The materials used in the fabrication of these plates allows for projectiles to be absorbed within the plate itself, preventing dangerous spall as is common with steel plates. Don't rely on your carrier to stop high speed bullet fragmentation.

All our Hard Armor Plates are Made in the USA by LTC, Leading Technology Composites, the worlds largest and most respected body armor manufacturer.
