Price is for ONE PAIRof Spall Blocker® inserts.Spall is when a bullet explodes into tiny fragments when hitting a steel plate at near a perpendicular degree angle. It can also happen on the BACK of the plate when higher energy rounds hit or a second round hits in the same spot, sending metal spall out into your body. Ricochet is when pieces, or even the whole bullet deflect off a steel plate when hitting at a sharper angle. These 10x12" soft insertsaredesigned to go FRONT of your steel SAPI plates to mostlyeliminate spalland reducericochets, and an additional pair can gobehind your plates IF you aren't using soft IIIa armor behind them. They stop the bullet fragments exploding off after hitting the steel to keep them from hitting you or your nearby buddy.Front plates are particularly dangerous because of being close to yourcarotid artery.All steel plates are prone to this problem, and mostrubber coatings (linex, rhinolining etc)do notdo much after1 or 2shots because it usually blows off big chunks of the coating. Also the coatings add 1 1/2 to 2 lbs to your already heavy plates. These add only 7 ounces. So your spall protection is gone even though your plate can take dozens more shots. With Spall Blockers they work for many shots, but then you can replace with new ones to continue using your steel.And edge protection only stops spallfrom shots right at the edge, and can't stop richocets or high angle spall. Ours are soft and flexible andweigh only 3oz each and are less than2mm thick.Made ofKevlar (10 times stronger than steel)and ballistic nylon. Testing shows 2 layers stop most spall, but these are6 layers, to stop thespall andalso reduce ricochets.These need to be in a regular pocket to be in close contact with the plate to work well. Carriers using just a strap to holdyour plate (such as some Condor vests)don't work as well.You can duct tape them to your plates to use in these strap type holders. Nothing will stop all ricochets, that is why steel is not used by military or police, but these stop the majorityof the problem. (Point Blank and Second Chance add 1 layer to their steel platesand says it willstop spall).
Here is a video of what happens without spallblockers.Plate carrier (and your arms and throat) destroyed : is a videousing only 2 layers of Kevlar: to be used by themselves for protection).
