DARKMATTER X looks beyond protection—empowering partners to harness DARKMATTER’s full range of material properties and capabilities. DARKMATTER’s energy redirection and anti-vibratory capabilities make it a perfect candidate for enhancing your existing products or developing revolutionary, disruptive applications.


Already a proven solution for minimizing Back Face Deformation (BFD) and Behind Armor Blunt Trauma (BABT). DARKMATTER can also be integrated into a variety of other tactical applications including ballistic shields, body-worn armor, vehicle up-armoring, and more.
