D3O is a ground breaking impact protection solutions company that licenses a range of unique patented smart materials. The market-changing D3O® technology is used to produce a shock absorbing material which can be found in a range of products across the motorcycle, sport, footwear, electronics, military and workwear sectors. I?m interesting in one material that they supply which is D30 Gel which is a substance used in impact protection due to its energy absorptive properties. In its raw state it flows freely when moved slowly, but on shock, locks together to absorb and disperse energy, before returning to its flexible state.
