Radiation Shield Technologies (RST) announced the launch of their Demron ICE full body suit on Tuesday, which, the company states, is able to protect against several threat types and includes self-cooling fabric.

According to the announcement, the suit is capable of protecting against threats that fall into the chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives (CBRNe) category.

“We developed Demron ICE in response to a growing global demand from healthcare workers, members of the military and other first responders for a comfortable full-body suit that provides protection against viral, biological and chemical threats and may be comfortably worn for prolonged periods of time with significantly less heat stress than other gear on the market,” Dr. Ronald DeMeo, president of RST and the suit’s creator, said.

The announcement explains that many personal protective equipment (PPE) and full-body suits trap natural body heat within the suit, making an uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous internal environment that can impact performance of first response personnel.

This suit was designed with fabric that allows internal heat to escape the suit while keeping harmful substances away from the person inside the suit. They also have included the ability to apply external cooling methods.

The suit will be showcased at the 8th Annual CBRNe Convergence Congress and Exhibition.
