World’s First Nuclear Radiation-Blocking Fabric Receives New Patents

MIAMI, FL | Posted on November 27th, 2007

Ronald DeMeo, MD, MBA, president and chief executive officer with Radiation Shield Technologies (RST), today announced the company's acquisition of Russia and Singapore patents for Demron, the world's first nuclear radiation-blocking fabric. Demron will be exhibited during the National Institute of Justice's Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Conference, which takes place Wednesday, Nov. 28 - Friday, Nov. 30, at the Harbor Beach Marriott, 3030 Holiday Drive, Fort Lauderdale, FL, Booth number: 28.

At the conference, Mr. DeMeo will deliver a presentation titled: "Anti-Nuclear Protection: New Technologies for Protection against Dirty Bombs" at 1 p.m., Friday, Nov. 30, in room A.

Demron is an advanced radiopaque nano-polymeric compound fused between layers of fabric and manufactured into several lightweight, nuclear-blocking garments. Demron is used in full-body nuclear, biological, and nuclear-biological-chemical (NBC) suits, tactical anti-nuclear vests, high-energy nuclear suppression blankets, medical X-ray vests and aprons.

"Demron is a liquid metal that feels like fabric and is cool to the touch," said DeMeo, the surgeon who developed Demron. "It's the world's only full-body radiation protection fabric that shields against X-ray and low-energy Gamma emissions while providing full anti-chemical and biological protection. Demron is a lead-free, toxin-free, and PVC-free nuclear-blocking material that allows heat dissipation and resists chemical permeation and cracks."

Numerous universities and government laboratories have confirmed Demron's ability to block radiation. Demron has several U.S. patents.

Added DeMeo: "Demron is receiving extensive recognition in the United States, and we expect the Singapore and Russia patents will enable us to expand Demron's market potential."

Demron suits are made from a unique nanotechnology that surpasses the current NBC suits, which provide limited protection against radioactive particulate sources.
