Transforming visions into reality

Mobile devices are driving innovation around the world. Each generation is an average of 12% thinner than what came before, and designers need to get more computing power out of less space. The latest smartphones, tablets and ultrabooks put greater demands on the materials used to manufacture them.

Designers and engineers at the world’s leading mobile brands rely on our expertise and materials to develop next-generation devices. They challenge us to transform their design vision into reality with innovative, advanced plastics for frames and enclosures, connectors, cables, wearable straps, and automotive electronics devices

Our broad portfolio of materials enables the design and manufacture of components as thin as 0.1mm that maintain the rigidity needed to ensure a durable end product. We work with component manufacturers to understand the material properties needed for each component, and help designers reach new possibilities for their next device – always with a focus on how to make it thinner, stronger, safer, and without harmful substances.

Contact us today to talk about how we can help transform your vision into reality.
