D3O impact protection exhibits at IDEX
- United Arab Emirates: Tuesday, February 19 - 2013 at 11:26
- PRESS RELEASE
D3O, the British impact protection solutions company, will exhibit at IDEX with Hydra Trading, their exclusive partner in the United Arab Emirates on stand 11-C05, from 17th - 21st February 2013.
D3O is a type of smart material that is a composite of a dilatant fluid and polymers, used to create a soft and flexible material with high shock absorbing properties. In standard conditions, the molecules flow freely allowing the material to remain soft and flexible, but on impact, they lock together to absorb impact energy and reduce the force transmitted. The molecules instantly return to their flexible state so it never 'goes hard'. It is strain-rate sensitive, which means the stronger the impact, the more the molecules react, and better the protection.
As an ingredient brand, D3O offers a wide range of stock components including limb protectors, back protectors and sheet material available in different grades and thicknesses. D3O has extensive experience working with leading defence suppliers worldwide on protective clothing solutions including brands such as Drifire, Xion, Renegade, London Bridge Trading and Patagonia. Other personal protective applications include industrial workwear, gloves for the Oil and Gas industry and blunt trauma impact protection for law enforcement.
D3O is also a systems house and develops bespoke impact protection solutions for partners. The company is now at the point of entering into a strategic relationship to develop future solutions including head to toe soldier protection such as helmets, limb protection, ballistics, gloves,
footwear and soldier mounted equipment as well as armoured vehicles. D3O is tested to the highest standards and meets the standards of SATRA, STR, NPL, INSPEC, HPE, MERL, BSI.
Outside of the PPE market, D3O's unique patented impact technology is used by some of the world's leading brands and athletes across sports, motorcycle, electronics and footwear. From boxing to ice hockey, snowboarding to World Superbikes, D3O has made an impact as market leader in the soft impact protection market.
