As a convert to EFM’s range of lifestyle products, you’ve probably seen the term D3O used across our Industry News blog and social channels.
Our new Case Armour lines are equipped with it and it’s a central element of what makes our phone protection products so tough.
But what is D3O and why is this game changing material taking the world by storm?
Let’s give you the rundown.
With a worldwide patents attained in 2002, D3O is a company that is changing the face of many industries from its headquarters in London, England.
In sixteen short years, D3O has not only grown to include other primary labs and bases across the world, but to be a leader in shock protection technology widely used in a broad range of industries and arenas.
D3O utilises advanced polymer chemistry to produce the award-winning material that offers deceivingly flexible, lightweight, soft (and distinctly orange!) impact protection!
D3O boasts an impressive list of industries that utilise their technology in their products. The sporting, motorcycle, electronics, defence and industrial sectors have all turned to the shock and impact resistant durability of D3O technology.
The Canadian and US ski teams competing in the 2006 Winter Olympics were the first on the sporting stage to utilise D3O on a global platform.
Only a few short years later, D3O had already established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the motorcycle industry with their back and limb protectors that offers the utmost protection against the dangers associated with the sport. D3O also protects US football and baseball teams through the use of it in their helmets, and Usain Bolt is the face of ENERTOR insoles, which - you guessed it - feature D3O for optimal performance.
But that wasn’t enough for D3O! Before long, the electronics industry were realising that their smartphone and device cases could be strengthened with the inclusion of D3O - EFM included!
Since then, the military and defence sectors have stepped up, with organisations like the US Special Ops utilising the technology in their uniforms to ensure maximum protection against impacts.
Now you have some background on the benefits of D3O in a range of industries, you can probably see why it was the only choice for EFM.
Our Verona, Aspen, Cayman and Impress phone case ranges are fused with D3O phone protection, to protect against damaging drops, shocks and impacts that can spell disaster for your favourite smartphone. The result? A lightweight, barely-there protection boost for your valuable device.
With a range of D3O-inclusive cases to fit both iPhone and Samsung Galaxy models, experience the peace of mind of knowing you have military-grade protection in the palm of your hand.
