D3O materials in their raw state flow freely when moved slowly, but on shock, lock together to absorb and disperse energy, before instantly returning to their flexible state.
This unique characteristic provides enhanced protection, while providing a versatile and flexible material that can be manufactured for a host of impact protective applications.
We manufacture this raw substance into practical functionality, as both a foam and non-foam material. The technology allows freedom of movement for the user with no compromise in comfort or protection.
As the material’s molecules lock, D3O disperses the force of impact, drastically reducing its effect and
minimising the risk of injury or equipment damage.
Note: D3O does not “go hard”.
