World’s First Nuclear Radiation-Blocking, Anti-Chemical and Biological-Protection Suits Exhibited at National Radiological Emergency Preparedness Conference


LAS VEGAS, NV – Ronald DeMeo, MD, MBA, president and chief executive officer with Radiation Shield Technologies (RST), today announced the exhibition of Demron, the world’s first nuclear radiation-blocking, anti-chemical and biological-protection suits, at the National Radiological Emergency Preparedness Conference.  The exhibition takes place from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday, April 7, through Wednesday, April 9, at the Tuscany Suites and Casino, 255 East Flamingo Road, Las Vegas, NV. Booth number: 217.  

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. Recent deployments include a NATO-funded purchase of a record number of Demron suits for use by the Ministry for Emergency Situations of the Republic of Belarus. “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. and international patents. Demron suits are made from a unique nanotechnology that surpasses the current NBC suits, which provide limited protection against radioactive particulate sources.
