Computers & Consumer Electronics
Computers, smartphones, smart handheld devices, appliances, smart home devices, wearables and other consumer electronics are continuously improving. Manufacturers who adapt and evolve have the opportunity for growth even in this highly competitive marketplace. Users have expectations of increased performance and in many cases slimmer and more lightweight designs.
Polymer Science helps manufacturing and design teams meet the demands of this industry with power solutions including our P-SHIELD® Shielding & Grounding materials and P-THERM® Thermal Management materials. Our adhesives, tapes and coatings provide quality and durability for your products.
Beyond the challenges of competing in a crowded marketplace, consumer electronic manufacturers tackle consistent challenges in bringing products to market including:
Rate of Technological Change
You need business partners who can adapt to the rapid changes within your industry. Polymer Science has the capability of working with you to adapt to new designs, performance requirements, and even the evolution of your assembly process.
Short Product Cycle
Manufacturers on the leading edge of consumer electronics must confront the increasing demands of their buyers. Introducing new products and updating existing models with new designs demand nimble and quick solutions within your materials. Polymer Science has extensive experience meeting these demands and exceeding expectations.
With heightened global competition, supply chains for consumer electronics are complex. Polymer Science works closely with manufacturers to ensure processes and structures are in place to meet your needs on time.
Polymer Science in Computers and Consumer Electronics
Throughout consumer electronics adhesives, tapes and coatings are used to manage the problems of electromagnetic interference, heat dissipation, and general fixation of components.
Many Polymer Science materials effectively solve multiple problems. In compact designs, our thermal management materials conduct heat away from sensitive components, act as electrical insulators and in some cases, protect components against damage. For example, thermally conductive adhesives and tapes can bond materials while dissipating heat from electronic components to heat sinks. Two-part dispensables conduct heat away from sensitive components while also absorbing shocks.
A wide variety of our products are designed to solve shielding & grounding problems. Adhesives and tapes are manufactured in a number of designs including fabrics, films and foams. These materials create strong bonds to secure components while also providing a conductive pathway for grounding. Thin and lightweight materials are needed in many of the latest consumer electronics. The need for these materials will continue to increase as consumer wearables, advanced batteries, and smart device designs change the way we interact with the world.
General Industrial Applications
In addition to needing specific solutions for thermal management and shielding & grounding, manufacturers need proven and durable solutions for the manufacturing process and assembly. Polymer Science has extensive experience in designing adhesives to suit your manufacturing demands.
