We perform the "Box Test" on AR500 Armor® Body Armor. The box acts as a visual aid to show the patterns and results of fragmentation and spall when a round strikes plate body armor. We've seen this done before with raw/un-coated steel body armor and wanted to show exactly what our PAXCON Line-x protective coating is capable of. The balloon man is added for good measure and based off another video whom used the above mentioned raw steel plate. http://www.AR500Armor.com
We test with (3) rounds of 7.62x39 124gr FMJBT fired from an Arsenal AK47 at just 20 yards. The AK round has over double the mass of a standard 55gr 5.56 round and will result in much more fragmentation upon impact, naturally, we felt like this was the right caliber choice to demonstration the capabilities of AR500 Armor® Body Armor.
The Body Armor featured is our level III 11" x 14" Extra Large model with our PAXCON Line-x Build Up Coat. Sealed in a flat-rate box you can see the result for yourself.
Fragmentation & Spalling are non-existent and the rounds are fully contained. Our protective coating did not crack, blow-out, or peel from the plate. The spec on the front of the box after the first round impacted the Body Armor is a very tiny fragment of the jacket being removed as it entered the spall & fragmentation coating which did not puncture the box.

No fragmentation penetrated the box, and the rounds did not penetrate the armor. Our balloon man survived (3) rounds at just 20 yards! Also take a close look and notice minimal back face deformation.
