Introduction to Cases

As mobile phones become an ever growing part of our lives it is ever more important to protect these precious devices.

Don't worry, GEAR4 have teamed up with materials experts D3O® to create a new range of stylish phone cases that not only look great but also protect your phone from being damaged. How does it work? Well, D3O® material is a non-Newtonian fluid which means it does not conform to the laws of Newton. It has freely flowing molecules that when shocked on impact, lock together to absorb energy before returning to their natural state. The greater the impact force, the greater the locking and the greater the protection. If you are looking for a slim, stylish and protective case – GEAR4 is here for you.

How D3O® Technology works

What's inside?

D3O® materials in their raw state flow freely when moved slowly, but on shock, lock together to absorb and disperse energy, before instantly returning to their flexible state. This reaction is counter intuitive. The greater the force of the impact, the more the molecules lock together and the greater the protection.

D3O® Technology

Impact protection and shock absorption solutions

D3O® unique technology is based on the innovation of capturing the benefits of non-Newtonian shear thickening material in polymers that can then be engineered for real world impact protection solutions. These enhanced properties offer a number of different performance benefits depending on the base polymer used and the intended application.

D3O®’s global patents ensure that no other company can offer the same type of protection. D3O® materials are engineered to be fit-for-purpose but as a solutions provider D3O® is also able to customize the various formulations to a partners specific requirements.
