Integral Technologies and Delphi jointly to develop insulator technologies for wire and cable shielding with conductive plastics
ElectriPlast Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Integral Technologies, Inc., has entered into a co-development agreement with Delphi Automotive PLC jointly to develop automotive wire and cable insulation applications using ElectriPlast Conductive Resin Technology.
Integral, a leader in electrically conductive hybrid plastics, and Delphi will focus their joint development efforts on replacing the copper braiding in wire and cable applications with the lighter and more cost-effective plastic hybrid material ElectriPlast.
The resulting applications are expected to be lighter, less costly to manufacture and substantially easier to install.
ElectriPlast is a line of non-corrosive, electrically conductive resin-based materials the properties of which allow it to be molded into any of the numerous shapes and sizes associated with plastics, rubbers and other polymers while reducing component weight by 40 to 60%. ElectriPlast Corporation is a leader in conductive plastic technologies with an extensive patent portfolio covering applications from consumer electronics to alternative energy and wire & cable.
