How To Maintain and Care For Your Agilite Armor Plates:
Read and follow the following procedures when cleaning agilite ballistic inserts
•remove insert from vest or carrier.
• gently wipe insert using a sponge or cloth dampened with a mixture of cool water and mild
Laundry detergent or antimicrobial soap.
• remove all excess soap with a damp sponge or cloth and cool, clean water.
• lay insert flat and, using a clean absorbent towel, gently pat all surfaces dry.
• let insert dry naturally, ensuring it is completely dry before re-inserting into vest or carrier.
• make sure insert is placed into the vest or carrier in the correct orientation as indicated by
“strike face” and/or “wearer side” markings.
• do not attempt to modify or alter the plate in any way.
•do not immerse in liquid
• do not hang or line dry.
• do not blow dry or dry in oven.
• do not dry clean or commercially launder.
• do not expose insert to bleach (liquid or vapor), solvents or chemicals of any type.
• • do not intentionally damage the plate in any way by means of drilling, breaking,
Hitting with force or misuse.
Ballistic material should never be exposed to any petroleum, chemical or chlorine products. Exposure to these
Agents will result in a loss of ballistic resistance and void any warranty.
Correct Product Use and Advisory Warnings
Warning: do not use your ballistic insert if it (a)
Has been struck by a bullet, projectile, or otherwise,
Hit or dropped, stabbed, or (b) is chipped, cracked,
Delaminated or separated, or (c) shows any other
Physical change. Any of the foregoing may either cause
The ballistic insert to be ineffective or indicate that it has
Become ineffective, exposing the user to increased risk
Of serious injury or death.
Warning: the ballistic insert provides no protection
To areas of the body the insert does not cover. Strenuous
Movements or physical altercations may cause ballistic
Inserts to shift on the user’s body, thus affecting coverage.
Warning: the ballistic insert does not provide
Protection against bursting munition threats such as ied’s,
Mines, hand grenades or mortar fire unless stated on the
Product technical sheet.
Warning: exposure to gunfire is intrinsically
Hazardous. The ballistic insert will not provide protection
From all threats potentially faced. The insert is intended as
A last resort measure to reduce risk after all other actions
And methods to preserve personal safety have failed.
Warning: do not remove or obscure the ballistic
Insert’s affixed product label. It provides the model
Number, serial number, warranty period, threat types,
And other important information specific to the insert
Including the issue date when it was first placed into
Service. The absence of the product label could cause
Increased risk of serious injury or death.
Warning: choose only the appropriate model, type
And size of ballistic insert. It is important to understand
The type of threats faced, and to determine in advance if
The insert is designed and tested against these types of
Threats and is the correct size for use.
Warning: the ballistic insert is designed to lessen
The risk of injury or death from those threats indicated
On the affixed product label and as described in nij
Standard—0101.06 or other specification as described on
The product technical sheet. User should read and fully
Understand that standard’s various threat levels, and the
Limitations on the protection afforded by each.
Warning: even for those threats included within the
Ballistic insert’s specified nij threat level, the insert is only
Ballistic resistant, not “bullet proof”. Although agilite
Ballistic insert designs are tested to a combination of nij
And agilite ballistic resistance protocols; this does not
Assure the insert can defeat all types of threats in all types
Of conditions and environments.
Warning: the ballistic insert provides only limited
Protection. In the event an insert stops a threat, the
Wearer may still sustain some degree of injury such as
Severe bruising, broken bones, bleeding, internal injury,
Or even death. In addition, at some angles projectiles can
Ricochet or deflect off of the ballistic insert causing serious
Injury or death to the wearer or bystanders.
Warning: the ballistic insert is designed for both
Frontal and oblique impacts, but the greater the angle
At which a projectile impacts the insert’s strike face, the
Greater the possibility that the projectile may penetrate or
Slide off the insert resulting in serious injury or death.
Warning: the possibility that a projectile may
Penetrate the ballistic insert increases with multiple
Impacts and their closer proximity on the insert face. While
Not a common occurrence, this may result in serious
Injury or death.
Warning: should the ballistic insert be struck by a
Projectile close to the insert’s edge, the insert’s ability
To dissipate the projectile’s energy may be adversely
Warning: unless otherwise stated on the label, the
Ballistic insert is not designed for stab resistance and
Therefore does not protect against impacts from sharp edged
Or pointed objects.
Warning: always make certain the ballistic insert is
Positioned so that its “strike face” side is oriented toward
The threat. Inserting the ballistic insert improperly will
Render it ineffective and expose the user to increased risk
Of serious injury or death.
Warning: the ballistic insert...Along with any
Associated body armor vest, carrier or jacket...Must fit
Properly. Wear only the correct size and use only those
Vests, carriers or jackets where the manufacturer has
Provided for ballistic insert usage. Inserting a ballistic
Insert into undersized or oversized carrier pockets may
Lead to misalignment of the insert exposing the user’s vital
Organs to the threat.
Warning: do not intentionally get shot with any
Bullet or other projectile while wearing the ballistic insert.
Intentional contact with a bullet or other
Projectile always carries the risk of serious
Injury or death.
Warning: remove and carefully inspect the ballistic
Insert before each usage. Should the insert be broken,
Interrupted, cracked or damaged in any way, the insert
Should immediately be sent to agilite or its authorized
Dealer for an inspection. Inserts that are broken,
Interrupted, cracked or damaged may negatively impact
The ballistic performance and may need repair or
Warning: the ballistic performance of armor is
Known to change with time and wear, especially when
Exposed to extreme conditions and environments. The
Ballistic insert should not be stored in places where it is
Exposed to high temperatures and/or high humidity for
Long periods of time. Exposure to such extreme conditions
And environments may adversely impact the insert’s
* unless otherwise stated on your plate.
If body armor is shot or damaged
Replace body armor immediately if it is shot or otherwise damaged in any way.
If your body armor has been struck by a bullet in a duty-related assault, agilite will replace it
