Rogers’ PORON® Cushioning and XRD® Impact Protection Materials Win “Best Component” Award at 2015 APLF Trade Show!
The Spring MM&T (Materials, Manufacturing and Technology) show in Hong Kong is a one stop sourcing platform covering the entire spectrum of the fashion industry which includes leather, synthetic materials and more.
This year, the Rogers Asia Team highlighted XRD® Extreme Impact Protection molded parts, specifically designed for sporting goods designs, alongside PORON® Cushioning insole technologies for use in work, casual, outdoor and athletic footwear.
To encourage the pursuit of excellence in design and quality and to mark the 20th anniversary of the event, the organizer launched the Best of APLF Awards (BOAA). Rogers submitted the XRD 810 Series and PORON Dual Layer Materials, both of which won the “Best Component” award. Rogers Corporation was the only company to be granted this honor.
The XRD 810 Series‘ various designs and unique shapes, pictured above, offer designers a wide choice of protection options, while utilizing flexible, comfortable XRD impact protection technology. The PORON Dual Layer technology takes advantage of both PORON Slow Rebound Soft Material for a customized, total contact fit and PORON Performance Material, which provides excellent shock absorption to help comfort joints and soft tissue. Together these materials work to offer even pressure distribution and to aid in support and stability.
