Dow Corning Corporation, a leading innovator in silicone solutions for the textile industry, has introduced its patent pending DEFLEXION impact-protection technology based on silicones. The DEFLEXION technology platforms are engineered for protective equipment and apparel in a flexible, breathable form.

DEFLEXION technology is a performance textile and impact-absorbing material in one that is designed to protect without the added bulk and stiffness of traditional padding. DEFLEXION technology offers textiles that are flexible, breathable, washable and durable; and can be cut and sewn directly into clothing, eliminating the need to insert uncomfortable padding.

"DEFLEXION from Dow Corning offers premium impact protection that is flexible, breathable, and washable," said Dr. Liz Mallen, business development manager, Dow Corning Textiles. "Overall, designers and consumers are getting far more choices. Unlike bulky, hard-armor systems, DEFLEXION from Dow Corning provides silicone-based textile technologies which are very comfortable to wear in terms of fit, freedom of movement and temperature control."

Innovative DEFLEXION technology is suitable for a multitude of applications in products such as: sports apparel, equipment and footwear, medical devices, personal protective equipment and luggage.

Dow Corning has been a leader in silicone material science for over 60 years and is always exploring innovative application opportunities.

DEFLEXION from Dow Corning offers a range of impact-protection technologies that allow for the easy creation of high-performance protective apparel and equipment. DEFLEXION technologies focus on providing exceptional comfort, enhanced fit, superior freedom of movement and due to the unique stability of silicones, performance over a broad range of temperatures. Unlike traditional soft armor protection, DEFLEXION products are able to achieve high levels of protection, while remaining comfortable and stylish.
