COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH

WHAT IS 'COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH'?

‘Compressive strength’ is the resistance of a material to breaking
under compression (in Koroyd’s case, crumpling to absorb energy).

why does it matter?

Koroyd’s high-performance tubular core is available in various tube diameters, densities and polymers which allows our engineers to tailor a solution for particular performance requirements.

Due to this flexibility, Koroyd’s compressive strength can be adapted depending on the amount of force that users could encounter in an accident.

This gives us more control over how quickly or easily the crumple zone needs to be initiated, and the rate of compression during an accident, which helps us realise our goal of designing products which may reduce the risk of suffering a life-changing injury.

a multitude of applications

For example, in industrial helmets, we have a unique specification with a lower compressive strength for situations where the user is at risk of falling objects.

In comparison, our motorcycle back protectors have a higher compressive strength to absorb the higher energy impacts that a rider might suffer in the event of a crash.

TECH TAKEAWAYS

TAILORED PERFORMANCE

Koroyd's performance can be tailored depending on each application in order to provide better protection.

Koroyd Full Liner

OPTIMISED APPLICATIONS

All Koroyd products are engineered with a specific Koroyd specification, optimised to absorb maximum energy.

COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH

Different products require different compressive strengths depending if potential impacts will be high or low energy.
