Poron XRD impact material

STEAKS uses Poron XRD impact material offering extreme impact protection while still ensuring the user maximum comfort and flexibility. The lightweight material was designed for maximum absorption and dissipation of energy upon impact. The impact material is breathable and is treated with Microban® Antimicrobial Protection that helps prevent the growth of bacteria, odours and stains. www.xrd.tech

How does our impact material work?

The material is soft and flexible when at rest, while above the glass transition temperatures (Tg) of the urethane molecules. When stressed at high rate or impacted quickly, the Tg of the material reaches the point when the urethane molecules momentarily “freeze”- like water into ice. Thus the material firms to form a comfortable protective shell that absorbs and instantly dissipates up to 90% of the impact energy again and again.
