How It Works

SHOCKtec®

THEIR IMPACT PENETRATES THROUGH THE PAD

When a force hits SHOCKtec Gel or Air2Gel, the impact is immediately dissipated throughout the entire pad. The force is spread out across a larger area with a minimal amount hitting directly under the impact area.

SHOCKtec® RETURNS

After each impact SHOCKtec instantly and fully returns to its original shape and readies for the next. Our zero to 2% compression set is far superior to our competitors. In even the most extreme impact tests and weather conditions, our padding will never compress more than 67% of its original shape.

OTHER GUYS

THEIR IMPACT PENETRATES THROUGH THE PAD

Most foams collapse directly under the point of impact. A maximum amount of force travels down and penetrates through the pad increasing the chances for injury or trauma.

THEIRS NEVER FULLY RECOVERS

The majority of competing products suffer from an inability to recover after initial impact. Many never fully return to their original shape rendering them damaged and less effective.

How SHOCKtec Works in Armor Vests

SHOCKtec® Gel and SHOCKtec® Air2Gel products are not like any gel you have seen before...

They are actually hybrid polyurethane elastomers(viscoelastic dry polymers). SHOCKtec® Air2Gel is the only Air-Frothed Elastomer Gel in the world. These unique materials have few, if any equals with respect to impact protection, comfort, durability and shock absorption.
