G-Form now creates stealth cases suitable for the boardroom utilizing its revolutionary impact absorbing technology — 100% made in the USA

PROVIDENCE, RI (July 11 2012) – G-Form, a company globally recognized for its revolutionary extreme impact protection in sports and electronic gear, has now integrated its protective technology in some “stealth” iPad cases suitable for the boardroom, the Reverse Ballistic Edge and Extreme Hydro Sleeve.

The company, which recently demonstrated how its molecular-changing reactive protection technology (RPT) could protect an iPad from a drop of over 100,000 feet from near space has now created two stealth black cases offering that same level of protection.

In typical company fashion, G-Form introduced the new iPad® cases to the marketplace in a public demonstration by dropping iPads protected by these cases from over 35 feet in a bucket truck onto a Best Buy® parking lot.  While the G-Form RPT-protected iPads survived without even a scratch, an iPad in a competitive hard shell case was destroyed by the same drop.

“Our technology is unique in that it doesn’t require thickness to absorb impact,” said Thom Cafaro, VP of Innovations, G-Form. “Our unique composites are soft and flexible until the moment of impact at which point they momentarily stiffen – changing molecular structure while at the same time absorbing over 90% of impact force. While many people are familiar with athletes in almost any extreme sport wearing our G-Form bright yellow exoskeletal compression gear, or with the very distinctive look of our existing electronics protection, these new iPad cases use the identical proprietary impact technology in a design that doesn’t call too much attention to itself,” continued Cafaro.

G-Form’s new Reverse Ballistic Edge and Extreme Hydro Sleeve are both 100 percent designed, molded, cut, sewn and packaged in the USA, and the company is committed to its USA manufacturing strategy.

“All of our electronic gear is molded, cut and sewn and assembled in the US which is pretty much unheard of in electronics,” said Bill Reifsnyder, VP of Marketing, G-Form. “As a result we have created over 300 new local jobs in just the past 6 months.  Our American made technology sets a totally new standard in protection and at a great value to the consumer.”
