about darkmatter sciences

what is darkmatter?

DARKMATTER variable composite materials optimize protection, performance, and comfort by directing the flow of kinetic energy.

Everything from everyday products to industry-specific solutions can be upgraded with DARKMATTER—material science tested and proven in the most critical of conditions.

DARKMATTER was introduced in our Energy Dispersal Pads, which minimize the force of impacts to ballistic armor by dispersing kinetic energy. Lowering the risk of injury for law enforcement, first responders, and warfighters was just the first of many applications of our next-gen technology.


According to modern science, dark matter is a mysterious substance that affects the universe at large—but cannot be seen directly. We know it exists because of the effects it has on objects that we can see.

These measurable effects are what reveal its presence. That’s the genesis of the DARKMATTER name: measurable benefits from an ingredient you might not see—but the results will speak for themselves.

darkmatter material properties & benefits

DARKMATTER’s variable composite technology can disperse, guide, or redirect kinetic energy better than any comparable material. Benefits and features include:

layered construction

DARKMATTER’s layered construction enables enhanced energy optimization, adaptability to a range of use cases, and the integration of technologies like biometric monitoring.

lightweight materials

DARKMATTER is comprised of premium materials that are lightweight and flexibleallowing for greater protection without adding heft or bulk.

return-to-form resiliency

DARKMATTER is extremely resilient with consistent return to form. This provides excellent energy return that can be leveraged across a wide range of applications and industries.

extreme durability

DARKMATTER’s excellent shear-strength stands up to extreme repetitive force, as demonstrated by its ability to maintain material effectiveness against multiple ballistic strikes.

vibration reduction

DARKMATTER dampens vibratory frequency, amplitude and acceleration making it ideal for vehicular and industrial applications.

maximized comfort

DARKMATTER’s materials improve fitment and weight distribution to maximize comfort and minimize fatigue.

testing results with impact

Third-Party testing has proven DARKMATTER to provide the best protection of any ballistic trauma product on the market.

kinetic energy impact force reduction testing

Kinetic energy transfer testing was conducted to measure the external load impact to the body both with and without DARKMATTER material. Pressure values were captured with medical-grade fluid pressure monitoring systems in a controlled setting under expert oversight.
