With ElectriPlast™ we eliminated the receiver's aluminum antenna, reduced the overall antenna size and still maintained performance.
Fort Washington, PA (PRWEB) September 06, 2011
ElectriPlast Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Integral Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: ITKG), (http://www.electriplast.com) and makers of the ElectriPlast™ line of electrically conductive resins, announced today Think Wireless, Inc., a leader in wireless technologies and antenna solutions, has purchased next generation antenna components engineered from ElectriPlast™ conductive resins for use in a new series of SiriusXM Satellite Radio receivers. The two companies will also work together to jointly develop future technologies incorporating ElectriPlast™ composites into next-generation Think Wireless products and devices.
"We are pleased to be selected by Think Wireless as their sole provider of conductive resins," said Paul Mackenzie, Director of Global Sales for ElectriPlast Corporation, "To have ElectriPlast™ incorporated into the next generation of consumer satellite radio products from Think Wireless introduces ElectriPlast™ to a myriad of applications within the wireless and antenna fields. For ElectriPlast™, who received the first of many patents for engineering a highly conductive plastic for antenna applications, this is quite a remarkable day."
ElectriPlast™, the company's patented line of conductive resins, includes over 80 blends and is said to be the most comprehensive line of conductive plastics in the industry. Applications include everything from wire and power electronics, to shielding, antennas, capacitors and medical devices. Interested industries include consumer electronics, aerospace, military, automotive, lighting, heavy industry and life sciences as designers and engineers look for ways to make their products lighter, more portable or more fuel efficient.
"Today's announcement follows months of testing and trials in which we proved the significant benefits of incorporating ElectriPlast™ conductive resins into our next generation antenna technologies," stated Dr. Argy Petros, founder and CTO of Think Wireless. "Not only is ElectriPlast™ durable, weather resistant and versatile it offers added functionality and lightweight composition. With ElectriPlast™ we eliminated the receiver's aluminum antenna, reduced the overall antenna size and still maintained performance. We look forward to incorporating ElectriPlast™ technology into future applications."
