AgileZorb™ consists of nanoporous particles suspended in a specially formulated liquid or gel. Pressure rapidly forces the liquid into normally empty nanopores, absorbing a tremendous amount of energy. 60% - 80% of the energy is dissipated as heat. Additional energy is dissipated by storing then releasing the energy through a gentle spring-like action.
AgileZorb achieves ultra-high performance because the entire surface area of the nanoporous particles helps absorb energy. Each gram of particles (a couple cubic centimeters) has 100-2,000 square meters of surface area - the equivalent of up to half of a football field.
n sporting applications such as helmets, protective vests, shin guards, etc., AgileZorb not only absorbs impact energy, but provides variable rate damping. Depending on the application, AgileZorb can provide thinner cushioning materials and better fitting pads. AgileZorb promises superior performance and comfort.
