AiroFoam® is a high-impact, shock absorbing foam material, designed to protect your biggest devices from drop damage using state-of-the-art impact-absorbing technology. This clever foam has been developed to deliver extreme protection in the sleekest package possible.
What’s in AiroFoam®?
Traditional protective materials are thick and stiff, but AiroFoam® is thin and flexible. Here’s how:
AiroFoam® is a non-Newtonian fluid. This means it doesn’t behave like normal liquids. Under stress, its viscosity – how thick or runny it is – changes. Fun fact: lots of everyday materials are also non-Newtonian fluids, like custard, cornstarch and shampoo. We don’t recommend that you try to wash your hair with AiroFoam® though.
AiroFoam® is made of a series of exceptionally intelligent molecules. They gather to form strong hydrogen bonds as soon as they experience an impact. This turns the material from a soft, malleable foam into a hard, protective shell which guards against shock. The particles rush together to protect your device.
The hydrogen bonds between the molecules temporarily break when impacted which consumes huge amounts of energy, absorbing the impact energy which would otherwise hit your device. When the impact ends and the energy has dissipated, the material returns to its soft resting state. It’s this change under stress which makes AiroFoam® a non-Newtonian fluid. There is no limit to the number of times this change can occur, or to the number of times AiroFoam® can protect your device from impact damage. Clever.
How does AiroFoam® work?
- AiroFoam® is made of intelligent molecules which are arranged so the material is soft when at rest.
- Upon impact, the molecules gather to form strong hydrogen bonds, turning the material from a soft foam into a hard, protective shell which guards against shock.
- The hydrogen bonds between the molecules temporarily break when impacted, which consumes huge amounts of energy. This absorbs the impact energy which would otherwise hit your device.
- When the shock has been absorbed, the molecules become free, and the material returns to its original soft state.
Our most protective phone cases feature AiroShock®. It's a fantastic high-impact material that protects smaller devices. However, because it's solid, using it to protect larger tech devices would make the case too heavy.
We wanted to bring extreme protection to larger tech devices like iPads and MacBooks – and that’s where AiroFoam® came into play.
Thanks to the clever arrangement of molecules in AiroFoam®, it's less dense and lighter – the perfect match for larger devices that need ample protective materials. This means your Mous MacBook Pro Sleeve or Extreme Commuter Backpack remain incredibly protective without the unnecessary bulk.
What are the benefits of AiroFoam®?
AiroFoam® is great for larger devices because it’s highly protective and delightfully light. AiroFoam® offers maximum protection for your device in two important ways:
- Tough Protective Shell
AiroFoam® is made of intelligent molecules which gather and stiffen when they experience an impact. When AiroFoam® hits a solid surface, all the molecules gather together and form a tough, protective shell around your device. The change in intelligent molecular bond pattern turns AiroFoam® from a soft and malleable foam into a hard, protective shell which protects your MacBook Pro.
- Impact Absorption
When impacted the hydrogen bonds between the molecules in AiroFoam® temporarily break. This consumes huge amounts of energy which would otherwise hit your MacBook Pro. The energy which would usually damage your laptop is absorbed by the reaction and keeps your MacBook safe and unharmed in its sleeve.
- Geometric Design
AiroFoam® is also geometrically designed to protect your MacBook from drops and falls. The geometric pattern in which the foam is installed is implemented in such a way that it speeds up the rate of deceleration when your laptop hits the ground. This reduces the impact on your MacBook and the less impact, the less damage to your device.
We are Mous
We saw an uninspiring marketplace filled with phone cases that were protective and ugly or not protective at all. We saw a way to do better. That's why Mous makes tech accessories which enhance your everyday experience with your tech by focusing on performance, functionality and style.
