Arma Products
uses vacuum forming as an automated process to cover body armor plates to SAPI/ESAPI specifications. This has shown to save time and money and reduce liabilities.

ARMA-Guard is a unique blend of urethane film that provides the correct balance of chemical and UV resistance. TPU sheets are provided pre-printed with registration holes to align print to body armor plate during the vacuum forming process.

Each side of the plate is vacuumed formed using an automated Formech machine with
PLC controls for time and temperature events. The TPU matrix is razor trimmed, then plate edges are seamed in a purpose-built thermal press.

The label technology is a TPU label bonded to a TPU Spall cover. Arma Products calls it “Mold-IN” technology as the TPU label becomes part of the Spall cover. No edge pick and no removal of the ARMA-ID TPU labels.

Labels are bonded to the TPU Spall cover with a thermal press built to accommodate the multi-curve plate design. A template then locates the plate in the press base and a curved heat platen bonds the TPU label via heat and light pressure.

ARMA-Guard is a system to spall cover body armor plates using automated processes for covering, edge seaming, and label attachment.
