Exposing The Anatomy Of Functional Surfaces

Speaker: John Skabardonis | Company: Covestro| Date: 10-11 March 2021 | Full Presentation

Driven by the desire for ever more compact and sophisticated devices, increasing demands for improved functionality and for more customization options, OEMs are turning to functional integration. Thin, three-dimensional parts which were previously simply thought of as covers, or “skins” can now incorporate diverse functionality. This presentation will explore different means of achieving the above goals through the use of materials from Covestro.
