AR500 Armor® Carbon Nanotube Soft Body Armor is Ultra-Light, Ultra-Thin, and extremely Flexible. Carbon Nanotube Soft Body Armor is the pinnacle of soft armor technology. Utilizing the latest Carbon Nanotube technology and proprietary Non-Newtonian back-face foam, AR500 Armor® CNT body armor is the most robust, light-weight, flexible, and affordable level IIIA soft body armor in the industry!
Measuring in at 11″ x 14″ our new Carbon Nanotube soft IIIA backpack armor is concealable to the point of virtually disappearing in backpacks, book bags, laptop cases, luggage, and plate carriers. Being flexible increases ergonomics and comfort as the armor forms to its surroundings, flexing and bending while providing IIIA threat protection anywhere you need.
Carbon Nanotubes have finally found their way into body armor applications. AR500 Armor® is proud to lead the way with this new technology. Carbon Nanotubes are tiny strands with incredible strength, described as being as harder than diamonds. The addition of Carbon Nanotubes increases effectiveness in multi-hit capabilities and allows creation of a lighter weight, thinner profile, more reliable, and robust armor solutions than body armor that use only Dyneema, Kevlar, or Aramid. Soft armor consisting of only Kevlar and/or Dyneema often costs more, weighs more, and requires more layers making them thicker, less flexible, and less ergonomic.
Back face deformation is also a concern with soft body armor as it directly translates to what you feel in the event of taking a round. Existing soft armor on the market uses high density foam to increase comfort and decrease back face deformation. Our CNT soft body armor uses a Non-Newtonian foam, a material that instantaneously hardens under pressure which improves performance by decreasing back face deformation and more efficiently spreads energy throughout a larger surface area of the body armor. This results in less energy transfer through the soft armor, and less back face deformation compared to traditional, thicker, high density foams.
