EFM® have forged an exclusive partnership with D3O, the UK-based developer of patented ground breaking impact protection solutions.
This partnership will see D3O’s unique, impact protection technology used in various smartphone accessories under the EFM® brand name exclusively across Australia and New Zealand.
All models will feature brand new, patented technology in the form of injection moulded D3O® smart material that will offer market leading impact protection together with ultra slim case designs.
In addition to the distinctive D3O® Orange, the EFM® Case Armour range comes in an array of great colours.
D3O® core patented technology is based on non-Newtonian principles.
In standard conditions, the molecules in a non-Newtonian fluid flow freely allowing the material to remain soft and flexible. On impact, they lock together for milliseconds dissipating the impact energy and reducing the force transmitted, but then instantly return to their flexible state..
The raw material is strain rate sensitive which means the stronger the impact, the more the molecules react, and the better the protection.
D3O manufactures this raw substance into practical functioning foam and non-foam materials.
D3O® materials feature a unique patented technology that offers enhanced shock absorption and impact protection.
Delivering premium performance properties, D3O® materials consistently outperform traditional materials.
The aim of Case Armour testing is to highlight the improved level of shock absorption offered through the integration of D3O® impact protection material.
‘The use of D3O® could lead to the creation of a world of even safer and more responsive materials’
‘Everyone exposed to possible injury from blunt-force trauma can benefit from the remarkable protective properties of D3O® Materials’
