Poron XRD is used in a variety of applications involving dynamic sports and sport activities:

Poron XRD ability to adapt to the applied impact:

  • At high strain rates the material instantaneously stiffens to absorb the impact;
  • Based on the applied impact the Poron XRD molecules create a unique protective
    shield able to transmit the force over a larger area to the wearer thus ensuring excellent protection;
  • At rest or under low strain rates, Poron XRD Material feels comfortable,
    allowing a wide range of movement;
  • After each impact Poron XRD recaptures its original shape and consistency, remaining comfortable;
  • Poron XRD transmits a lower stress to the user compared with other competitors as shown here below.
