Published on 2014-10-29. Author : SpecialChem

CANTON, Michigan -- Integral Technologies, Inc., one of the emerging light-weighting leaders and its wholly owned subsidiary ElectriPlast Corp., announced that its Asian molding partner Chang Rim Eng Inc. ("Chang Rim") has successfully completed its prototype phase for a motor casing for the automotive industry. "This is a major milestone for us, as we have been exploring the use of conductive plastics in Asia and this is the first opportunity we have had to implement a product using the ElectriPlast technology. We have tested and trial molded many different conductive plastics from the US and Europe and found ElectriPlast to be the most effective for our applications under development," stated Won-Hyun Kwon, Chang Rim's President. "We are in the process of providing a large number of final test units to our customer and expect contract award by end of this year." Chang Rim has been closely involved with the development of the motor casing shielding application, including material support, molding trials, testing and validation efforts.

Chang Rim is a specialty molder based in Daegu, South Korea focusing on high margin plastic injection molded products for a variety of industries in addition to automotive, including consumer and industrial products. "We have been assisting Chang Rim to select the ideal ElectriPlast compound of resin and fiber for their applications," stated Mo Zeidan, ElectriPlast's CTO. "This is a material advance in our cooperation with our regional manufacturing partner Hanwha L&C."
