Re: d3o functional armor


sorry to revive an old thread (well, not that sorry! emoticon ), but wouldn't this stuff look great over this new suit in TDK? the armor will give the definition, the segmented parts will allow movement, and the over all look will be more streamline, less «motor cross», you know? and I say this even though the latest pic of the suit isn't so bad, but still...

It could actually be that suit, or any movie suit including the cowl, so we could say goodbye to latex.

Re: d3o functional armor


is it that affordable? I know you can't give numbers but maybe comparing to something else. Is it bullet proof?

Re: d3o functional armor


It's shock resistant but not bullet proof, a ski suit with d3o inserts is only a couple of hundred dollars more than a standard one.

If I were using it on the street I would still have Kevlar in certain places but much less would be needed.

It would be cool if this stuff could actually be the outer layer but I would look at the d30 ski suit as an under layer with light armour on top like TDK.

you're right. I'm always looking for more info on the stuff, I found plenty here:
http://www.rexresearch.com/palmerd3o/palmerd3o.htm

about the bullet proof aspect:
«Furthermore, it may also be associated with a textile layer or similar where the textile has the facility to enhance the abrasion performance and in some cases the resistance to intrusion from sharp objects and/or assist in the attachment of the composite material to other systems or products. A stretchable textile backing (lycra?)will also serve to limit the elongation of the material and thereby provide durability. The textile may also serve as an antiballistic or stab-proof fabric such as certain woven grades of KEVLAR.»
