AA Shield® Body Armor released the latest in ultra-lightweight high strength. And flexible materials to create the best affordable body armor in the body armor industrial. Our body armor built from the UHMWPE (Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene) which is capable of defeating pistol rounds up to .44 magnum, most lethal hollow-point rounds, also lesser level IIIA pistol threats.
Our focus was to bridge the balance between performance and the price, no sacrifice on either end was acceptable. Our soft-body armor delivery and includes features only found in more expensive body armor.
The result is high-performance light-weight and flexible body armor that can be worn all day comfortably and also offered the best price on the market!

Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE, UHMW) is a subset of the thermoplastic polyethylene. Also known as high-modulus polyethylene, (HMPE), or high-performance polyethylene (HPPE), it has extremely long chains, with a molecular mass usually between 3.5 and 7.5 million were. The longer chain serves to transfer load more effectively to the polymer backbone by strengthening intermolecular interactions. This results in a very tough material, with the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic presently made.
UHMWPE is odorless, tasteless, and nontoxic. It is highly resistant to corrosive chemicals except for oxidizing acids; has extremely low moisture absorption and a very low coefficient of friction; is self-lubricating (see boundary lubrication); and is highly resistant to abrasion, in some forms being 15 times more resistant to abrasion than carbon steel. Its coefficient of friction is significantly lower than that of nylon and acetal and is comparable to that of polytetrafluoroethylene(PTFE, Teflon), but UHMWPE has better abrasion resistance than PTFE.
