Demron W Nuclear Radiation Blocking, Anti Chemical, Biological-Protection Material launched at New York Law Enforcement Expo


NEW YORK – Ronald DeMeo, MD, MBA, president and chief executive officer with Radiation Shield Technologies (RST), today announced the launch of Demron-W at the New York Law Enforcement Expo on July 10 and July 11. RST enhanced its original Demron material to enable it to block all types of biological- and chemical-warfare agents, making the new Demron-W the world’s first and only protective ensemble for all types of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear incidents. 
Demron-W, RST’s core technology, is an advanced radiopaque nano-polymeric compound fused between layers of fabric and manufactured into several lightweight, nuclear-radiation blocking garments, including full-body suits, vests, blankets and medical X-ray vests and aprons.
The technology provides more protection than the current NBC suits, which offer limited shielding against radioactive sources. It is the only personal-protection system that provides complete alpha, beta and low-energy gamma protection along with total nuclear-radiation protection. Demron technologies have a wide variety of applications in many industries and are currently used by the military, first responders, police and fire-rescue units, government employees, health-care workers, civilians and others concerned about potential radiation exposure. The products are deployed worldwide by NATO, NASA, the National Guard, US Navy, UAE and the governments of South Korea, China, Saudi Arabia and Australia, among others. Scientists have selected Demron for space suits for future Mars and other space travel.
Demron-W, made of liquid metal, is designed to feel cool and flexible and enable users to comfortably perform a complete range of duties. In this way, it also differs from all the other available personal-protection products, which are known for being heavy, hot and inflexible. Demron also is a lead-free, toxin-free, and PVC-free material that allows heat dissipation and resists chemical penetration and cracks. Demron has been proved to block gamma rays, X-rays and nuclear emissions by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, part of the National Nuclear Security Administration within the U.S. Department of Energy, as well as the Georgia Institute of Technology and the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.
Radiation Shield Technologies (RST), with headquarters in Miami, is a world leader in the research, design and production of personal-protection systems for ionizing and nuclear radiation. The company's core technology, Demron-W, is specifically engineered to combine radiation protection with ease of use to maximize radiological defense. For more information, visit
