  What is Supracor?   

    A flexible form of aerospace honeycomb that is fusion bonded without adhesives, retaining all the benefits of the
    base material.  As a versatile, engineered material, Supracor’s shock-absorbing honeycomb can be found in 
    high performance applications such as fighter jet aircraft seats, sports protective equipment and bumpers for
   
amusement park rides.

                     
                                   The U.S. Navy has specified Suoracr for its F-18 Hornet jet fighter’s seats

  What is Supracor made of?

 
Thermoplastic urethane, a flexible and resilient material that is non-toxic and safe for the body and the
  
environment. The same material can be found in wound dressings and artificial heart valves.

                               


  How does Supracor work?

   Supracor’s flexible cellular matrix consists of alternating thick-and thin-walled cells that flex when
  
compressed to relieve pressure. When sitting on a Supracor seat , the compressed cells radiate
  
outwards to surround and support the anatomy.
 

                                           

  Pressure Relief plus Positioning

   Supracor honeycomb relieves pressure by distributing it away from hot spots.  As a result, bony 
   protuberances “feel” the same pressure as the surrounding anatomy. The honeycomb cells conform
   to body shape, and distribute weight uniformly. Additionally, Supracor honeycomb stabilizes any position
   due to the axial buttressing of the honeycomb cell walls perpendicular to the anatomy.

  Shear Force Reduction

  The horizontal stiffness of a material determines both its shear resistance and stability. Too much stiffness  
   increases shear forces, while too little decreases stability. Supracor honeycomb minimizes shearing without
   sacrificing stability. The honeycomb cells align themselves axially to the body, flex with movement to reduce
   shear forces and then instantaneously resume their original shape.
