Fully Integrated Lightweight Products; with the aim of offering even lighter housings and covers for electronic portable devices such as laptops, tablets or smartphones, Cross Composite produces innovativeand lighweight electronic components with a perfect surface finish and completely integrated sub-functions such as clips, cooling vents or fixation spots and thus maintaining cradle to cradle recyclability of the part. Especially for avionic housings for aerospace and space applications, where there is particular demand for lighter products, Cross Composite technologies provide the most value added.
Electromagnetic Shielding Included; Cross Composite materials have electromagnetic shielding inherently included. Additional conductive coatings known from common plastic parts are avoided. Thus, production becomes streamlined, integrated, and cost-effective.
Neglectable Thermal Expansion; Automated production guarantees the quality and repeatability of the part. The use of carbon reinforcing fibres will also reduce the coefficient of thermal elongation, which can reduce loads within the system, especially with LCD displays.
Excellent Vibration Damping; Thermoplastic composite materials provide unique damping properties compared to metallic materials or even duroplastic composites.
Chemical Corrosion Resistance: Most of the Cross Composite material portfolio offers suitable solutions against aggressive chemical corrosion. Maintenance is minimized and costs are optimized using thermoplastic composites.
