Default Bullet resistant material durability

Couldn't think of a better place to put this question, but...

What is the maximum psi or newtons, or whatever, that a bullet resistant face shield can withstand? Just curious after reading a story with several being shattered, wanting to know what kind of force that would require.

Thanks for any answers.

I would look up one of the manufacturers.
The second link is one of the standards that product meets.
Dead Bears, the only good kind.

It would weight 3 or 4 pounds, not realistic. Forget seeing anything.
