Technology

SKYDEX is a patented cushioning and protective material that adds energy absorption and vibration dampening properties to diverse products ranging from blast mitigating flooring in the latest military vehicle to cushioning in athletic or combat training wall pads. Each application is tuned by our engineers for the specific use required by our customers.

Applications

Applications

With its engineering-grade resins and patent-protected geometric shapes and arrangements, SKYDEX can be modified to customer requirements to provide a wide range of benefits including impact mitiga

Our most valued asset is our intellectual property and SKYDEX has 48 issued patents in 22 countries across North America, Europe, and Asia, as well as a number of patents pending, that protect our

The Tuning Process

By engineering variations within the SKYDEX geometries – using either shape, material composition, volume of plastic or layout within the part. Our technology can be tuned to offer increased durability, reduced volume, easier cleaning, and lighter weight than comparative energy absorbing technologies.

  • The specific geometry of the variant, including the height and ellipse ratio
  • The grade of raw material
  • The thickness of the material
  • The layout of the shapes across the part
  • The addition of flexibility, stiffening, or air-flow features

Applications that provide a wide range of benefits.

Our proprietary protective technology is an application-specific survivability and performance enhancement solution designed for six key benefits:

  • Ballistic SKYDEX technology can be integrated in existing ballistic products to reduce back face deformation.
  • Blast Limiting Absorbing blast waves and lessening the pressure transmitted from explosions.
  • Cushioning SKYDEX’s technology works similar to a spring, giving under pressure then returning to the original shape and form.
  • Impact Absorbing The twin hemisphere technology absorbs more shock in less space while providing consistent support across the product.
  • Sound Reducing The unique SKYDEX geometries absorb sound to create a barrier against loud, high pitched or distracting noises.
  • Vibration Mitigation SKYDEX materials absorb vibration to prevent negative effects of whole body vibration (WBV).
