MCR Safety with Zoombang provides unparalleled protection

Feb '10
MCR Safety has the exclusive distribution of the patented Zoombang technology for industrial hand protection. Our ForceFlex Professional Grade offering includes Zoombang technology in the palm which increases comfort while providing unparalleled protection from impact and vibration.

One of the most distinguishing visual features is the Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR) material which provides comprehensive protection for the knuckle and back of the hand. This protective material mirrors the bone structure of the human hand. A pull cord to ease donning plus a breathable mesh fabric back, synthetic leather palm, and micro terrycloth perspiration band are additional features.

The Zoombang polymer is soft and fluid like to the touch. Upon impact, the Zoombang stiffens and locks to a solid state providing maximum protection. After impact, Zoombang returns to its soft, fluid like state. The polymer in Zoombang padding is also referred to as a shear thickening substance. The shear thickening property is one of the key attributes that allow the pads to stiffen in proportion to the energy applied. Shear thickening refers to a material's “stiffening” response to a shear stress, or force, which can occur as shock, vibration, or g-force side loads.

At rest, Zoombang will simply conform to the exact shape of whatever it is supporting. Add energy, in the form of shock, and the material will instantly stiffen.
