G-Form Drops, Crashes, and Protects its way into a 2013 Edison Award Finalist
If you haven’t checked out G-Form’s RPT yet, you’re missing out on some pretty amazing technology. Meaning Reactive Protection Technology, RPT is G-Form’s blend of PORON®XRD™ material along with proprietary G-Form materials that remains flexible until impact – when it immediately stiffens and absorbs over 90% of the energy. The technology can be used to protect your elbows in a crash on your bike, your laptop from airport baggage handlers, or your Ipad in a fall from space.
As it turns out, the Edison Awards have taken note of G-Form’s amazing products as they were named a 2013 finalist in the Material Science: Composites category. Winners in each category will be announced at the Edison Awards Gala which takes place on April, 25 in Chicago.
