ESAPI/ESBI plates are constructed of boron carbide ceramic and is backed with a shield made of Spectra, a material up to 40% stronger than Kevlar, to trap any fragments of either plate or projectile and prevent them from injuring the wearer. These plates are not typically given an NIJ rating, as they are tested in accordance with different protocols. Military testing calls for survivability of three hits from a .30cal M2 AP (.30-06 black-tip armor-piercing) cartridge. This requirement places these plates within the NIJ LEVEL IV classification.
