MIAMI — March 8, 2011 — Radiation Shield Technologies (RST) has been granted an Israeli patent for
Demron, the world’s first and only fabric that provides total multi-hazard protection against
nuclear, biological, chemical, bomb and ballistic threats, infrared radiation and heat stress.
Israel Patent No. 167330 recognizes RST’s unique technology.
RST, Demron’s exclusive manufacturer, has 12 other national and international patents. The
nanotechnology surpasses current NBC suits, which provide limited protection. Unlike other CBRN
suits, RST’s cool, lightweight, flexible full-body suit is proved to enhance athletic performance
and survivability by enabling passive and active heat dissipation while providing unsurpassed
chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) protection. Demron’s unique characteristics
include that it’s the only impermeable CBRN fabric that permits heat exchange and enables the
wearer to be cooled externally without having to penetrate the suit. In addition to the suit, RST’s
product line includes ballistic vests and high energy anti-nuclear ballistic blankets.
“RST developed Demron because we recognized that first responders need advanced
personal-protection gear that helps improve athletic performance and may be used in all types of
emergencies, including nuclear and radiological threats as well as traditional ballistics and
bombs, IED’s, RDD’s and RED’s,” said Ronald DeMeo, M.D. president of Radiation Shield Technologies
and the noted surgeon and entrepreneur who invented Demron. “We will continue to secure patents
worldwide for Demron as part of our strategy to expand its market potential.”
Other certifications include:
* ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003
* National Institute of Justice (NIJ) 0108.01 Certification for the Demron
High Energy Nuclear/Ballistic IED RDD Shield
Demron has been proved to provide multi-hazard protection against gamma rays, chemical and
biological threats and X-rays by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Pacific Northwest
National Laboratory (PNNL), GEOMET, and Kansas State University. RST’s products are currently
deployed throughout the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and the United States.
