The D3O® inner lining is protected by the outer fabric. The functionality of the raw material in the inner lining originates from synergetic effects of the polymer-based dilatant, which is generally soft and flexible, but locks on shock. On impact the D3O® material absorbs the shock and distributes the energy throughout the synthetic elastomeric polymer and the enhanced chemistry continues to disperse the energy throughout the matrix. The resulting force, which gets transmitted to the body, is thereby significantly reduced.
