About the materials we use to fabricate our custom ShockShield MouthGuards
and why we're so passionate about protecting America's athletes and our youth in sports by raising concussion awareness
PolyShoK™ Polymer Technology
PolyShok is a proprietary blend of plastic with the unique properties of being able to form to the mouth at low temperatures, and was developed specifically for use in sports mouthguards.
The result of this process is a soft, comfortable mouthguard that absorbs more destructive force than other athletic mouthguards by transmitting less force to the teeth, jaw and brain.
PolyShoK™ has been A.S.T.M. (American Standards in Testing and Measurements) tested to be over 150% more shock absorbent than leading traditional mouthguard (Ethyl Vinyl Acetate) materials. These results are reproducible in any A.S.T.M. certified lab in the country.
Total Energy Absorption
As a high-impact polymer, PolyShok™ provides more shock absorption than any other comparable material in use today. That means 85% more energy absorbency than the leading competitor and over 150% more energy absorbency then ethylvinyl aceate (EVA).
About the Lab Fabricating your ShockShield MouthGuards:
Trace Ortho Lab is a Seattle based orthodontic lab that fabricates orthodontic and dental appliances for local Dentists and Orthodontists, in addition to our superior ShockShield sports mouthguards for athletes and youth throughout the country.
So, as you can see, regardless of sport, interest, or job, a ShockShield MouthGuard is going to protect the athlete wearing it; and it won't just protect face, teeth, and jaw, but will also minimize the concussive energy that reaches your brain when taking a blow to the head. Isn't the brain worth the extra support?
