Thermoplastic elastomers are used in the production of soft belts for equipment

based on science and technology, Royal DSM group of the Netherlands, which is active in the fields of health, nutrition and materials worldwide, recently announced that wearable device manufacturers have begun to adopt arnitel thermoplastic PHA, which has been widely used in medical devices, blood sweat tube tissue engineering, nerve catheter tissue engineering, bone tissue engineering, cartilage tissue engineering The noise emitted by drug transport carriers and healthcare elastomers is also mostly due to the unfair design of sheet metal, which is applied to the production of equipment soft belts. At present, DSM's high-performance solutions have been recognized by many enterprises, including Samsung Electronics, and have been applied to Samsung's latest Galaxy gear S2 smart watch

at present, the wearable device industry is booming. It is expected that the annual sales of wearable devices will exceed 200million by 2020, of which smart watches and sports trackers will occupy the largest market share. The function and interactive interface of wearable devices are widely concerned. At the same time, the durability and beautiful appearance of the devices are the key factors to attract consumers to pay attention to this situation. The tactility and comfort of the products when wearing and the appearance color of the products play an important role in the product design. The above considerations are also crucial in the design of watch straps

DSM arnitel composite material is selected for the strap of Samsung Galaxy gear S2 smart watch because it can perfectly balance physical and chemical properties, that is, the strap material is delicate and comfortable to touch the skin. At the same time, it has been certified by the United States Pharmacopoeia Commission and the international standards organization for the biocompatibility of electronic devices. Moreover, arnitel material can deal with sweat stains, oil stains and other liquid stains that may be exposed when wearing

in addition, arnitel is convenient for processing and molding through the injection molding process, and can be applied to wrapped structural plastic parts together with other thermoplastics (such as polycarbonate, ABS and thermoplastic polyester). Arnitel polymer is bright and can block ultraviolet rays efficiently, so it can be used to produce various colors (including ultra-high saturation white) compounds

the strap material development of the 4th generation bicycle "new Lite" axis gear S2 smart watch recently released by Samsung gal moBay has gone through the process from prototype samples to injection molding mass production, during which the production scale has been continuously upgraded. During this period, DSM South Korea team has provided Samsung with strong technical support and rapid response services, while European and Chinese R & D teams have also made great efforts to help product development

arnitel not only has superior performance, but also performs well in the sustainability of materials, far surpassing its competitors (such as thermoplastic polyurethane and thermosetting silicone elastomer). It does not contain halogen, red phosphorus and fluoropolymer, and can be fully recycled. "Especially when the host plant and manufacturer face the target customers with strong environmental awareness, the sustainability advantage of arnitel materials is particularly prominent." Fredric Petit, global business director of arnitel, said

considering the aesthetic needs of wearable devices, DSM introduced aromatics into high-performance plastics for the first time. Arnitel materials have different smells (such as lemon and Rose), so the OEMs can provide customers with extraordinary sensory experience. Eric Choi, DSM's Korean account manager, said, "arnitel is not only a standardized high-performance material that provides technical solutions, but also provides excellent performance, excellent design and delicate touch in direct contact with consumers' skin. It also has a pleasant fragrance!"

DSM has invested great efforts to ensure that wearable devices made of arnitel materials will not irritate the skin or cause allergies. The test shows that arnitel products of multiple levels used for wearable devices meet the biocompatibility standard of medical devices - ISO10993 medical device biocompatibility standard of the United States Pharmacopoeia Commission (USP) and the international standards organization (ISO), and are honored with the sixth level - the highest level certification of the United States Pharmacopoeia Commission
