Summary
D3O is a unique polymer, which consists of intelligent molecules. It is a soft and flowable material, but on receiving shock, such as a sharp blow, the molecules lock together to absorb the impact energy.
D3O is in use in a variety of sports clothing, such as impact vests and shorts for participants in sports such as downhill skiing, kiteboarding and football, kneepads for volleyball players, and motorcycle jackets. D3O has also been used to form covers for iPods. Scientists have experimented with D3O to turn it into a soft and pliable material containing smart molecules to retain its original shape and also have fantastic shock absorbing properties.
In footwear, the material has interesting properties – it has both shock absorbing and energy return qualities. Usually materials are either one or the other. They either absorb the energy by being a bit mushy, or they return the energy and don’t have a very good shock absorbing quality. D3O provides both.
