Radiation Shield Technologies announced today the acquisition of two additional United States Patents, #6,841,791 and #6,828,578.
In September 2002, RST introduced Demron. Since that time, Demron has been incorporated into a number of garments such as full-body nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) suits, tactical anti-nuclear vests, high-energy nuclear suppression blankets, and most recently, medical x-ray vests and aprons.
Demron is revolutionary material because it is lead-free, toxin-free, and PVC-free nuclear blocking material. It also has the unique ability to allow for heat dissipation and resist chemical permeation. Additionally, Demron is crack resistant. Its ability to block radiation has been confirmed by a number of prominent universities and government labs. Demron is an advanced radiopaque nano-polymeric compound that is fused between layers of fabric and manufactured into a number of lightweight nuclear blocking garments. RST's ISO 9000 partners, Kappler and Point Blank, manufacture these garments.
Demron was originally developed over 10 years ago, by surgeon Ronald F. DeMeo, M.D., M.B.A. Demron received its first patent (#6,281,515) in 2001 and its second (#6,459,091) in 2002.
According to Dr. DeMeo, "These two additional patents are significant because the additional 193 patent claims allow RST to fully capture all of Demron's market potential."
