Characteristics of the SAS-TEC Back Protector
Viscoelastic foam with memory effect - After an impact or any kind of deformation the foam protector returns to its original shape within seconds.
Multi impact compliant - Unlike many other dampening materials such as styrofoam (EPS), silicone or foam of inferior quality, The PU-foam is multi impact compliant. Lightweight - High absorbability despite low density. Hard shell protectors or materials containing silicone are considerably more heavy which reduces the wearing comfort.
Adaptive absorption - The protector remains soft in case of slow impacts however when it comes to a fast heavy impact the resistance of the foam grows with increasing speed. The damping happens by air-changing in the foam-bubbles.
In impulse responding behaviour - SAS-TEC foam reacts promptly without any time delay even to minor impacts.
Environmental compatibility - The raw materials of the SAS-TEC foam production are partly made of renewable materials. It is therefore possible to dispose of the protectors with the regular household garbage.
Long product life - Some manufacturers of body protection only indicate a product life of two to three years their protectors, whereas SAS-TEC foam comes with a life expectancy of about ten years.
