D3O® technologies stiffen to absorb and dissipate
energy during an impact, significantly reducing
the amount of force transmitted to your body or
smartphone compared to standard materials.
D3O’s team of expert engineers typically test D3O®
technologies at a range of energies, from 5 to 50 Joules, to
meet and exceed industry standard requirements and
deliver fit-for-purpose materials.
The impact energy is the total (elastic + plastic) work
done when two things collide. Energy absorption is the
energy lost by a body as it compresses.
Force (F) is the result of an interaction between two
objects. A body will remain at rest unless acted on by
an external force. If a striker is falling, the force is the
total mass of the striker and acceleration is due to gravity.
