Premix wants to provide designers with a continuous flow of new opportunities. That includes developing functional plastic compounds that allow designers to come up with new and better solutions. Now we have taken another step forward.
Smaller, more cost-effective antennas
Wireless communication is developing faster than anyone expected. The trend toward faster networks and bigger data payloads is asking more from antennas: They have to be smaller and more effective, while meeting tougher environmental and sustainability requirements. Premix has developed new low dissipation plastics for antenna structures and covers. Antenna structures are typically made either from ceramic compounds or from standard plastics with non-optimal antenna performance. But now with the new Premix solution, designers can leverage the full potential of mass manufacturing and complex 3D shapes.
What you get is smaller, more effective antennas that can be mass produced faster and more sustainably than before – at a much lower unit cost.
We’ve accomplished what we set out to do: Our new solutions enable our customers to save time, money and the environment.
Shielding your electronics
One of the biggest challenges facing the electronics industry is shielding sensitive components against electromagnetic disturbances. The conventional approach is to build protective casing from metal or disposable plastics.
Thanks to Premix’s breakthrough solution, unique thermoplastic elastomers can be used to replace existing EMI shielding gaskets. This innovative thermoplastic compound is easier and faster to work with than metal or silicone. It is also cost effective and environmentally friendly, because you can immediately reuse leftover materials from production process.
Thermally conductive plastics
Electronic gadgets like smartphones tend to get hot under the cover during heavy use. In the past, metals were used exclusively to conduct excess heat. Premix offers a new solution to this heated challenge. The thermally conductive properties of metal can now be replicated in plastics. This offers designers and the electronics industry a completely new playing field. The manufacturing of electronics becomes faster and easier as injection molding can be used to mass produce thermally conductive components.
