What is Impactology™
Tech21 have turned Impact Protection into a science, establishing Impactology™ as a defining seal of approval. All Tech21 Impactology™ cases have been developed over many years of intensive research, including the study of impact protection, the use of D3O® a unique patented shock absorbing material, unique fabrics and their application, resulting in a highly specialised and complex manufacturing process. Tech21 is the only brand dedicated enough to turn the protection of your devices into more than just a veneer.

Over the years we have developed extremely strong relationships with leading handset manufactures including Apple and Samsung, which enables Tech21 to provide Impactology™ approved cases from day 1.

Features of Impactology™ approved cases

  • Proven Impact Protection materials specifically chosen to provide the maximum protection against drops and spills for your mobile device
  • Slim and sleek design -- because of the quality of Impact Protection materials used, we don't need huge amounts of material that can otherwise create bulky cases
  • Full functionality -- all our cases are designed to ensure full access and functionality of your device

How do we do it?
Our Impactology™ team includes some of the world's foremost polymer engineers and industrial manufacturing specialists. We work with the best available Impact Protection ingredient materials and work out how to use these materials in Impact Protection cases. That's Impactology™ -- the Science in Protection.

Impactology™ featuring D3O®?
D3O® is the orange Impact Protection material that you see in our cases. In everyday use, the molecules flow freely, but upon shock or impact they lock together -- absorbing the impact force and spreading the shock evenly across the surface of the material. That means your device stays in one piece, no matter how hard the impact!

D3O® Impact Material has been adopted worldwide by the military for its power in impact protection on the battlefield and is also used in other high impact areas such as sportswear.
