POLYMERS

An ergomorphic foam material that continuously redistributes and deflects a load three-dimensionally through its complex, spike-shaped matrix. The material absorbs physical energy and impact, dampens vibration, manages load, and distributes pressure. It is commonly formed with closed-cell, cross-linked polyolefins, but may be constructed from a vast array of semi-rigid or foamed materials. A patented technology is used to produce a molded close-celled foam with about 40% of cushion between hundreds of micro-adjusting spike units to make up the cushion matrix. The material is up to 50% lighter than standard EVA foam due to the areas of space between spikes. It can be incorporated by sewing or laminating into products that require protection as an extension of the body, such as implementing the foam directly onto base layers. The foam can be placed in key areas of impact around the body, which allows a full range of motion while maintaining consistent protection. The material can also be placed in footwear soles to adjust pressure and well-cushioned comfort during activity. Although the material is currently available as 0.97 sqm maximum dimensions (10.44 sqft) and 0.02 m–0.05 m (0.78 in–1.96 in) average thickness, the manufacturer is open to producing custom sizes. Applications include seating, bedding, head and body protection, machine, and audio dampening.
