ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

About our Armor:
What types of Armor Plate do we use?
  • CATI Armor AR500 Level 3
    AR500 Armor Plate is a high hardness (HH) steel used for High Impact Ballistic and Abrasion Resistant (AR) applications.  Level 3 is rated for M80 Ball at 2800 Feet per second.

  • CATI Armor AR600 Level 3+: 
    The CATI Armor AR600 armor Ultra High Harness (UHH) exceeds level 3 standards and is special threat tested to the 5.56 round of M193 up to 3100 feet per second. 

  • CATI Armor Pistol Hard Plate 3a+: 
    At 5mm thick, the CATI Armor pistol hard plate is constructed of a super thin AR500 ballistic steel.  Far exceeds the capability of standard 3a soft armor in ballistic capabilities and blunt force trauma.  The hard plate is virtually impenetrable in the slash and stab test for knives and spiked objects.

  • CATI Armor Pistol Soft Armor 3a: 
    3a soft armor is constructed of multiple layers of Aramid Kevlar and is great flexible option as a backpack panel, or an armor plate backer.

 Plate Coating Options:
  • What we use: 
    We utilize a Rhino Linings Extreme product that is recommended and developed specifically for anti-splatter (spalling) mitigation by Rhino Linings Military Research and Development.  This is Rhino Linings top of the line product for armor applications.  The only other product on the market that is equal in properties is Line-X PAXCON.

  • Base Coat: 
    Base coat is a thin coating of the ballistic steel to seal the armor from environmental elements.  This coating provides no measurable splatter mitigating properties. For splatter mitigation you need at least ¼ inch to be effective.

  • Build-Up Coat: 
    Build-Up coating is a ¼ inch of the Rhino Linings material applied to the strike face of the armor plate to mitigate splatter.  As the projectile passes through the coating and impacts the armor plate the fragments are trapped between the armor plate and the build-up coating layer.  The steel plate armor goes through a 4-step process of Blasting, Cleaning, Etching and Priming to achieve proper adhesion of the splatter mitigation coating. 
Plate Forming Options:
  • CQB - Multi-Curve:
    At the forefront of AR500/AR600 armor forming technology, we’ve created a “Patent Pending” protected process to achieve the greatest comfort, concealable and weight distributing steel armor plates on the market call the CQB for Comfort Quad-Bend.  The CQB is our top of the line forming process and is modeled from Tier 1 Operator armor plate curvature.  This double curve forming is tried and true for comfort and tactical applications.  The double curve form wears lighter than any other steel armor on the market.  The CQB can be placed in front or rear configurations.

  • EVO - Advanced Single Curve Plates:
    As part of our *Patent Pending* forming technology, we’ve also created the Advanced Single Curve, the “EVO” plate.  This curve fits your torso, but does not have the weight distributing properties of the upper chest curve. The Advanced Single Curve can be placed in either front or rear configurations. 

  • Trauma Pads:
    Trauma pads are manufactured from a specifically designed from a high impact foam specifically formulated for protection from blunt force/high impact trauma.  These pads are designed to be worn on the body side of the ballistic plate and serve to provide shock absorption between the armor plate and the human body.  We seal each pad with an ultrasonic sewing machine into waterproof rip-stop nylon covering for durability and sanitary reasons.  They are very lightweight and are ¼ inch thick.

    The customer service, quality, and shipping are awesome. I expected the processing and shipping to take a while. Boy was I wrong. I ordered this and the 10x12 CQC sapi plates on August 25th and was sitting at my house drinking coffee and hassling the grandkids when my items showed up at the house on August 4th. That is 7 business days. Awesome.

    I inspected the plates and I am very impressed. They fit perfectly into my carrier.

    I will deffinatley do business with Cati Armor again. As a matter of fact a new plate carrier is on my list.

    Thank you Cati Armor. I am very impressed with the service.

    Difficult to review something without testing. Hopefully never have to find out. In terms of comfort, due to the multicurves, plates have made my carrier much more comfortable, especially at the shoulders. Carrier feels lighter as well even though the plates weigh more than my old ones. I suppose it's due to them hugging the torso better. Will definitely buy another set.

    Very affordable. Comfortable to wear and lighter than the plates I was running before.

    I have the 511 Tactec plate carrier and ordered the the 10x12 plates. These fit fine and firmly on this plate carrier.

    I've had them for about a week and half and have ran several basic drills with it. Have not gone prone with it so no feedback there. I can do all sorts of body movement. I can shoulder my weapons without any issues and do not seem to notice any interference from the plates or the plate carrier.

    The biggest thing that stands out from these plates, is that its fits very well and blends into my chest and back.

    The only down side is the weight, it is on the heavy side so with all the plate carrier accessories and a fully loaded gun with optic, light and laser, the weight just adds up. But like everything else with lots of training, the extra weight will just become 2nd nature.

    With that said, don't let that scare you into getting these plates because I still give it 5 stars for the price and how well it fits.
