What is AiroFoam™?
AiroFoam™ is a foam material designed to protect your device from drop damage using state of the art impact-absorbing technology.
Traditional protective materials are thick and stiff, but AiroFoam™ is thin and flexible. Here’s why:
AiroFoam™ is made of a series of intelligent molecules, which gather to form strong hydrogen bonds as soon as they experience an impact, turning the material from a soft and malleable foam into a hard, protective shell which guards against shock. The particles rush towards one another and protect your device.
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 impact ends and the energy has dissipated, the material returns to its soft, resting state. 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.
AiroFoam™ keeps your device protected from any number of shocks, drops and falls.
How does AiroFoam™ work?
1. AiroFoam™ is made of intelligent molecules which are arranged so the material is soft when at rest.
2. 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
3. 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.
4. When the shock has been absorbed, the molecules become free and the material returns to its original soft state.
How does AiroFoam™ protect your device?
Our iPad cases use AiroFoam™. AiroFoam™ offers maximum protection for your device in two key ways.
The separation of hydrogen bonds between the molecules in AiroFoam™ expends a huge amount of energy, which is provided by the shock of any fall your device might take. This shock would otherwise be partially absorbed by your device, but because of the change of state in the AiroFoam™, it is all absorbed by the separating hydrogen bonds. The energy which would usually cause damage is absorbed by the reaction and keeps your device safe and unharmed in its covering.
Similarly, as all the molecules gather together in the AiroFoam™ material, they form a tough, protective shell around your device. The change in intelligent molecular bond pattern renders the material less soft and easily pliable and it becomes a barrier against impact, protecting your device even further.
AiroFoam™ is an exceptionally clever technology. We developed it in house to protect even your largest devices from drops and shocks. Our iPad case range which features this smart tech is available to order now, get yours here.
