How D3O Technologies Work
D3O uses a combination of patented, patent-pending and proprietary technologies to make rate-sensitive, soft, flexible materials with high shock absorbing properties that are used in impact protection products.
Based on non-Newtonian principles, in its raw form, the material’s molecules flow freely, allowing it to be soft and flexible, but lock together on impact to dissipate impact energy and reduce transmitted force.
