Supracor is the shock absorbing layer in the latest US military body armor
The horizontal stiffness of a material determines both its shear resistance and stability. Too much stiffness increases shear forces, while too little decreases stability. Supracor honeycomb minimizes shearing without sacrificing stability. The honeycomb cells align themselves axially to the body, flex with movement to reduce shear forces and then instantaneously resume their original shape.

A flexible form of aerospace honeycomb that is fusion bonded without adhesives, retaining all the benefits of the base material. As a versatile, engineered material, Supracor’s shock-absorbing honeycomb can be found in high performance applications such as fighter jet aircraft seats, sports protective equipment and bumpers for amusement park rides.
The U.S. Navy has specified Supracor for its F-18 Hornet jet fighter’s seats
Supracor’s flexible cellular matrix consists of alternating thick-and thin-walled cells that flex when compressed to relieve pressure. When sitting on a Supracor seat , the compressed cells radiate outwards to surround and support the anatomy.
Thermoplastic urethane, a flexible and resilient material that is non-toxic and safe for the body and the environment. The same material can be found in wound dressings and artificial heart valves.
Supracor honeycomb relieves pressure by distributing it away from hot spots. As a result, bony protuberances “feel” the same pressure as the surrounding anatomy. The honeycomb cells conform to body shape, and distribute weight uniformly. Additionally, Supracor honeycomb stabilizes any position due to the axial buttressing of the honeycomb cell walls perpendicular to the anatomy.
