Vinyl/Nitrile Closed Cell Foam

Vinyl/nitrile closed cell foam material has been specifically formulated and developed to provide High Impact resistance in personal body protection applications.

We conducted extensive research and development in body protection situations in order to source and design a material which would provide the most suitable attributes for the various applications required for this product.

The most important feature inherent in vinyl/nitrile closed cell Foam is its ability to absorb impact in order to prevent trauma to the wearer whilst providing comfort and flexibility in use.
