We’re delighted to announce we have released a new white paper in partnership with the University of Warwick at this year’s A+A exhibition in Dusseldorf. The whitepaper clarifies the differences between two of the most common materials used in helmet and cap protection systems.

It has been written by our Chief Technical Officer, Dr Mandy Humphreys, in collaboration with Dr Kylash Makenji from the University of Warwick.

The paper outlines the key advantages in using Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) over High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) in the production of protective shells.

To download the technical whitepaper, titled ‘The optimal choice to protect your most important asset: Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) used in the manufacture of Above-The-Neck safety equipment’, please visit: https://centurionsafety.eu/ABS
