PolyOne Expands Automotive Engineered Polymer Portfolio with ElectriPlast™ Conductive Long Fiber Technology

PolyOne Expands Automotive Engineered Polymer Portfolio with ElectriPlast™ Conductive Long Fiber Technology

PolyOne announced it has partnered with Integral Technologies Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary ElectriPlast Corp. to commercialize its patented, long fiber conductive ElectriPlast® material. This highly engineered, filled thermoplastic polymer replaces metal in electromagnetic and radio-frequency (EMI/RFI) shielding applications at up to 60 percent lighter weight. ElectriPlast Corp. is a leading technology innovator in conductive plastics with a broad intellectual property portfolio and deep application development expertise.

Through an exclusive, ten-year license agreement, ElectriPlast® technology will serve as a complement to PolyOne's existing specialty engineered materials portfolio, providing superior shielding for advanced driver assist systems (ADAS), including housings, connectors, and internal components for cameras, sensors, and electronic control units. As the automotive industry races to incorporate more ADAS technologies, the need for EMI/RFI shielding to eliminate cross talk has grown exponentially, because shielding is essential to the systems' operation.

ADAS components are the eyes, ears, and bodyguards of modern vehicles. From backup cameras and blind-spot-monitoring radar to sensors that keep tabs on environmental conditions and enhance performance, these systems are quickly becoming the standard for automakers and consumers alike. With ElectriPlast's Flexible Content Technology (FCT), the percentage and kind of metal fibers can be tailored to meet each OEM's specifications.
