Nitrex is a shock absorption foam and impact absorbing
foam material widely used in sports, motorcycle, industrial
and military protection, its closed-cell structure making it
waterproof, sweat-resistant and to prevent any moisture
Nitrex is closed-cell foam, whereas PU is open-cell and is only waterproof on its surface. Once the surface is cracked, PU loses its waterproof function. PU foam is often replaced after a certain period of usage because it is prone to hydrolysis. In contrast, Nitrex, has excellent weather resistance and durability, so Nitrex has longer service life than PU foam, helping to reduce the amount of waste and further reduce environmental pollution.
Nitrex can be cut and stitch like fabrics, as well as 3D molded parts thermo moldable to fit the ergonomics design for protector’s ease of movement and flexibility so that Nitrex used in body protection can exceed the performance requirements of EN1621 for motorcycle and winter sports, EN13158 for Equestrian, EN1077/1078, NOCSAE for helmets protection, and many other standards.
