Sounds like a waste of money.
They have a 5 year warranty in most cases.

Its only against the law for convicted felons to own them.

I always put my plates in a good bag then put them back in my IBA to keep the sweat and water and junk from ruining them. They get really soft once they get water on them.

Try any concrete plants or concrete form companys, they use glass fibers in the mix for strength.

Cant imagine H S lets you pass these things on to just anyone.

If you can, I'm sure there are some police depts in Mexico that could use them.

Do they not have H S printing across the back of them in big letters ??
good idea too.

Call the people that make spec mesh. They know more about it than a concrete company.
Give it to them rough and let them worry about size and gradation ( if in fact it will even work )

A lot of companies that are spraying the Xliner or gatorhide or whatever they market it as, use shredded kevlar in their blends.

How much finished product are you talking about and would it be a true, clean product? Are you shredding the entire vest or just the BP panels?
