D3O® is a groundbreaking impact protection solutions company that sells and licenses a range of unique patented smart materials. This market changing technology is used to produce a shock absorbing material which can be found in a range of products across a wide variety of sectors. D3O® was proven during the 2006 Winter Olympics when the U.S. and Canadian Ski Teams pioneered D3O®’s revolutionary soft armor. With no compromise on protection, D3O® changed the global protective wear market overnight with a range of low profile, lightweight, flexible, and breathable limb protectors. Today, D3O® leads and challenges the world of branded impact protection and shock absorption with innovative pioneering solutions for its customers.



The D3O® material in its raw state flows freely when moved slowly, but upon impact, locks together to absorb and disperse energy, before instantly returning to its flexible state.  This unique characteristic provides enhanced protection while providing a versatile and flexible material that can be manufactured using a globally patented technology for a host of shock absorption and impact protective applications.  D3O® manufactures this raw substance into practical functionality, as both a foam and non-foam material.

It is used in many markets.  For more information visit their website.
