Using the same successful hexagon tiles Militech has used in the the Alumina Ceramic III+ plates, Militech has created a III++ Silicon Carbide plate that is 2 pounds lighter for the same protection. The multi-curve design and more aggressive cuts allow you to move more freely compared to regular single-curve plates.

What is Silicon Carbide (SiC)?
Silicon Carbide (SiC) is a ceramic material that is known for being lightweight and having exceptional hardness. These properties make it an ideal candidate for use in body armor systems, where it can provide on-par protection against high-velocity projectiles and shrapnel compared to more heavy materials like steel or alumina ceramic.
