Miami-based Radiation Shield Technologies (RST) has been granted several new Canadian patents and several other international patents that further safeguard the company's intellectual property and its ability to manufacture, market and sell its proprietary Demron personal-protection gear.

Ronald DeMeo, MD, CEO of Radiation Shield Technologies, made he announcement in a press release.

Demron is the world's only fabric that protects against chemical, biological, ballistic, and radiological threats as well as heat stress.

Demron consists of an advanced radiopaque nanopolymeric compound fused between layers of fabric, used to manufacture the personal-protection gear.

Demron products are currently deployed worldwide by every branch of the US military, US CST teams, FDNY, IAEC, NASA, and many international first responder and military teams in China, Iraq, Kuwait, South Korea, Pakistan, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam and Singapore, the release said.

Scientists have selected Demron for thermo-mechanical suits for future space travel. RST manufactures Demron and the nano materials at its research and development facility in Miami.

“In today's world where the threats to first responders are continuously changing, RST is proud to continue to meet a growing global demand for our advanced personal-protection gear and expand our patented, proprietary technologies,” said DeMeo who is also a surgeon who invented Demron. “With Demron, first responders can operate in the field more safely and for longer periods of time than ever before.”

Radiation Shield Technologies is a world leader in the research, design and production of personal-protection systems for ionizing and nuclear radiation. (SH)
