Technology & Materials

STEAKS IMPACT MATERIAL

Steaks uses impact material that is a first in offering extreme impact protection while still ensuring the user maximum comfort and flexibility. The lightweight material was designed for maximum absorption and dissipation of energy upon impact. Impact material is breathable and is treated with an antimicrobial protection that helps prevent the growth of bacteria, odours and stains.
 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

Material gets its softness and flexibility when at rest while above the glass transition temperatures (Tg) of the urethane molecules. When stressed at high rate or impacted quickly, the Tg of the material reaches the point when the urethane molecules momentarily "freeze"- like water into ice. Thus the material firms to form a comfortable protective shell that absorbs and instantly dissipates up to 90% of the impact energy again and again.
