April 13, 2020 —- Adidas AG (Germany), a multinational corporation, announced that it has created 3D printed face shields co-created for its 4D midsoles, to support US healthcare organizations during the COVID 19 situations. Adidas has collaborated with a US-based technology company, Carbon3D Inc., to redirect its efforts to aid the global health crisis. The new 3D printed face shields are made of highly elastic, tear-resistant material called Elastomeric Polyurethane. This material is normally used in Adidas 4D midsoles, which creates personal protective equipment (PPE) products that can be sanitized and reused, which further eliminates the waste generation process during a time of scarcity. The collaboration with Carbon is a step Adidas has taken to support COVID-19 relief efforts.
