Will this pass the British Standard in Polo Helmets? It is stop over 250G from being detected?

PORON® XRD™ technology is open cell, breathable and is easily customized and incorporated in a variety of designs. The XRD protection difference is especially apparent at high speed impact. The soft contouring material instantly dissipates force upon impact – absorbing up to 90% of energy at high speed impact.*

PORON XRD material gets its softness when at rest while above the “glass transition temperature” (Tg) of the urethane molecules. When stressed at a high rate or impacted quickly, the Tg of the material reaches the point when the urethane momentarily “freezes” – like water freezing into ice. When this happens, the material firms to form a comfortable protective shell that shields the body from impact better than other protective foams currently available. On the measure that matters most – absorbing more impact energy at higher speeds.

*as measured according to ASTM-F1614-C

This video shows it compared to other materials, but not Expanded Polystrene (EPS) that is in current helmets that passes the tests and meet various certified standards. It would be good to see what It is like in comparison!
