Radio opaque fabric on show at PPE conference.

Radiation Shield Technologies : 27 November, 2007  (New Product)
Radiation Shield Technologies displays its recently acquired Demron radiation blocking fabric at Personal Protective Equipment exhibition.
Radiation Shield Technologies (RST) has announced the company's acquisition of Russia and Singapore patents for Demron, the world's first nuclear radiation-blocking fabric. Demron will be exhibited during the National Institute of Justice's Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Conference at the Harbour Beach Marriott in Fort Lauderdale.

At the conference, the RST president will deliver a presentation entitled: "Anti-Nuclear Protection: New Technologies for Protection against Dirty Bombs".

Demron is an advanced radio-opaque nano-polymeric compound fused between layers of fabric and manufactured into several lightweight, nuclear-blocking garments. Demron is used in full-body nuclear, biological, and nuclear-biological-chemical (NBC) suits, tactical anti-nuclear vests, high-energy nuclear suppression blankets, medical X-ray vests and aprons.

"Demron is a liquid metal that feels like fabric and is cool to the touch," said DeMeo, the surgeon who developed Demron. "It's the world's only full-body radiation protection fabric that shields against X-ray and low-energy Gamma emissions while providing full anti-chemical and biological protection.
Demron is a lead-free, toxin-free, and PVC-free nuclear-blocking material that allows heat dissipation and resists chemical permeation and cracks."
Numerous universities and government laboratories have confirmed Demron's ability to block radiation. Demron has several US patents.

Added DeMeo: "Demron is receiving extensive recognition in the United States, and we expect the Singapore and Russia patents will enable us to expand Demron's market potential."

Demron suits are made from a unique nanotechnology that surpasses the current NBC suits, which provide limited protection against radioactive particulate sources.
