D3O (pronounced d-three-Oh) is an innovative protective material that changes its properties, with a sharp udenom impact. And this is exactly what you need and the rider when falling unexpectedly powerful protection at the point of impact!

HOW DOES THE 3DO

So, D3O is a patented innovative material. It has a unique molecular structure - the so-called "intelligent molecules" that seem to interlock tightly at impact (the manufacturer uses the term moleculas lock).

During normal slow movements of expansion, stretching or bending the material is flexible and elastic. But in compression, i.e. when the shock, he suddenly becomes more dense over its entire surface, redistributing and, thus, absorbing energy attacks. At this point, the impact force is evenly distributed on the entire area of the material, which significantly reduces the impact load directly at the point of impact. As soon as the impact ends, the material again acquires its original shape and properties.

Note: D3O gets hard.

D3O is used in the most traumatic places: knee, shoulder, wrist, tailbone, and other. See below a video of a man jumping and falling to their knees, and continue walking as if nothing had happened. Do not try to do it without protection, it can lead to serious injury of the joint!

D3O is the material and brand, and at the same time a young British company, founded in 2006 after the successful application of its developments in the field of protection against attacks at the Olympics. Then their products were available only to contest participants, especially skiers.

The history of the emergence and prospects

D3O is a promising material characteristic orange color, which was patented in 2002-2004, but known to the public was about 5 years ago. The inventor of D3O is a snowboarder Richard Palmer, who recognized the unique properties of liquid substances, whose viscosity depends on flow velocity, and then created something new. The purpose of its development was searching for a material that could be used as protective gear for winter sports. To create a new durable material, Mr. Palmer turned gel-like polymeric substance in a state of elastic foam, which can not only keep its shape, but becomes solid protection at the time of extreme exposure.

The invention D3O had huge commercial potential, and Richard did not miss his chance. After a successful test-drive of equipment with unique properties at the winter Olympic games 2006 teams of skiers in the USA and Canada, in 2008 there were three new improved varieties of D3O, after which testing moved into a stage of active commercial exploitation.

Well, after a few years began to appear the goods for a wide range of consumers: protective equipment for various sports and motorcyclists, shoes, accessories for electronics, medicine. We can not overlook the fact that the high quality of the material were seen by the police and military, which are designed body armor, and other items of protective equipment.

 

The physical properties and the benefits of D3O

So, the main advantage of the elastic polymer "Dee-three-Oh" similar to the gum is that it retains its flexibility right up until to it will not be used aggressive physical effects.  On the Internet there are a number of videos, which clearly demonstrated effective protective properties of the material. D3O takes any desired shape, it is possible to cover part of the body, then try to make a strong blow with a hammer or other blunt object and not to receive absolutely no damage! A sharp blow will not deform D3O, but more importantly — a shock wave is distributed over a significant area of the surface, or in other words suppressed this streamlined material. The protective effect is achieved even with a relatively thin layer of D3O. This is the secret of the protection of living tissues, joints and bones of man. The combination of elastic "gum" with other materials does not hinder movement of the athlete, and for military and security structures improves the quality of bulletproof vests and other gear. In the future we can expect the emergence of molecular armor.

FAQ

Some questions and answers that may be of interest to you as a buyer:

In: How many blows can bear D3O?
About: The material recovers its shape and properties after multiple blows, E. in fact there are no restrictions. However, when very severe, perhaps even extreme loads, the material may be damaged.

In: Whether D3O absorbs water?
About: No. With prolonged immersion in water the material can collect some water, but it evaporates pretty quickly once it is removed from the water.

In: Can D3O to melt?
About: No. D3O is a thermoplastic, it does not change its shape at high temperatures.

In: As D3O reacts to gasoline or diesel fuel.
About: No way.

In: What is the life of D3O?
About: 2-3 years depending on the conditions.

In: D3O is better than solid protection?
About: The material only reacts to the kick, the rest of the time he remains sufficiently flexible and elastic, and does not restrict movement.
