RST introduces revolutionary Demron ICE full-body suit

Miami-based Radiation Shield Technologies, a global developer of advanced personal-protection gear, has introduced Demron ICE: the world's first full-body suit that protects against viral, biological and chemical threats using a patented self-cooling fabric that is ASTM F1671 Blood and Viral Penetration Resistance certified.

The suit which was unveiled on October 27 will be on display till October 30 at the 8th Annual CBRNe Convergence Congress & Exhibition in Orlando, Florida for live radiation testing of the company's patented technologies, it said in a press release.

With a focus on promoting industry collaboration and preparedness for all hazard threats, the conference is considered the most important annual event for the global CBRNe community. Planned by the editor of CBRNe World magazine, the programme unites top regional and international military and civil expert speakers providing shortcuts to best practice. Discussion topics will cover the latest hot-button issues, including responding to everything from nuclear threats to the Ebola virus. Ronald DeMeo, MD, president and CEO of RST, provided a presentation on “Nuclear Countermeasures” which explored varied topics including preparing for CBRNe threats, multi-hazard protection available today, military first responders: the first line of defense and military partners: case studies and examples.

A key component of the presentation focused on the increased need for advanced solutions such as Demron ICE, which is differentiated from others on the market by its proven ability to enable the longest extended use with the lowest degree of heat stress. The gear is made of the Demron fabric and includes booties, gloves and a face seal.

“We developed Demron ICE in response to a growing global demand from healthcare workers, members of the military and other first responders for a comfortable full-body suit that provides protection against viral, biological, and chemical threats and may be comfortably worn for prolonged periods of time with significantly less heat stress than other gear on the market,” said Ronald DeMeo, RST boss and the surgeon who invented Demron.

When first responders wear the CBRN suits, their body heat is quickly trapped in the suits, causing the users to become increasingly weak until they are incapacitated. Because the suits are designed to keep chemical agents from entering, they also keep heat from exiting. However, Demron ICE is differentiated by its unique thermally conductive properties that enable heat to leave the suits through thermal radiation and also enable the suits to be cooled externally without compromising the suits.

“With Demron ICE, first responders can operate in the field longer and safer than ever before,” DeMeo said. “As a global leader in advanced personal protection gear, Radiation Shield Technologies will continue to innovate and introduce new products to keep pace with increased threats from an ever-changing enemy in today's uncertain world.”
