AIM Advanced Integrated Matrix
1. Polyurethane Pad consisting of 3D Cut Polyurethane Foam Shaping process with fibre-reinforced layer matrix. Generally, an outer shell that is made of fibreglass (FRP) is given its shape by a heat-setting plastic. The SHOEI outer shell owes its ideal function to the integration of organic fibres and of three-dimensional shaping in a layered structure. This produces a helmet outer shell that is characterised by high strength for a very low weight as compared to shells that are produced in a conventional way.
2. The compound structure. The AIM shell consists of various layers of reinforcing organic fibres and glass fibres. Compared to an outer shell that is only made of glass fibres, the AIM outer shell is both lighter and more elastic for the same strength, and the AIM+ outer shell is even lighter due to the additional use of special fibres.
3. The synthetic resin. A specially modified, unsaturated polyester resin, a so-called heat-setting plastic, is used for the AIM outer shell. This resin acquires the desired strength and elasticity during the heat hardening process. This synthetic resin is also extremely resistant to corrosion for good measure.
With these constituent parts we produce outer shells that convincingly produce ideal damping of impacts, good elasticity, light weight and enormously high strength.
