PolyOne is licensing ElectriPlast long fiber conductive thermoplastic technology to provide better shielding for advanced driver assist devices.
PolyOne has partnered with Integral Technologies and its owned subsidiary ElectriPlast, to expand its patented, long fiber conductive ElectriPlast material.
ElectriPlast technology will provide shielding for advanced driver assist systems (ADAS), including housings, connectors, and internal components for cameras, sensors, and electronic control units.
By replacing metal in electromagnetic and radio-frequency, this thermoplastic polymer shields applications at a lighter weight of up to 60 percent.
ADAS components range from backup cameras and blind-spot-monitoring radars to sensors that keep tabs on environmental conditions and enhance performance.
With ElectriPlast’s Flexible Content Technology (FCT), the percentage and type of metal fibers can be tailored to meet each OEM’s specifications.
