AR1300 ARMA – STRIKE

Foam protection
for Body Armor Plates

ARMA – Strike is a resilient expanded polyethylene (EPE) energy absorbing foam for applications requiring impact absorption, vibration dampening, insulation, buoyancy and chemical resistance. ARMA-STRIKE is ideally suited for front, back and side body armor applications.
At 4.2lb density, ARMA-STRIKE is lighter and more durable than many other body armor foams available while delivering excellent impact protection.
