"Roll to Roll" and "Sheet to Sheet" printing systems in the field of flexible circuitry require a support that guarantees planarity and dimensional stability as well as high adhesion with conductive inks with the highest conductivity.
Coveme meets these requirements with a range of treated and heat stabilized polyester films, ideal for high speed printing.
Coveme technology has tuned a treatment for the surface of films which improves the adhesion of conductive inks and guarantees the proper performance in conditions of mechanical stress and harsh environments. Coveme’s films for flexible circuitry are validated by the major multinational companies in the fields of electronics for automotive, avionics, home appliances etc. Amongst other applications of Coveme materials in the automotive industries are the manufacturing of passenger detection devices and flat cables for steering wheel commands. In the field of electrical appliances flexible circuitry printed on Coveme material is employed for membrane switches, whereas in the aviation industry flat cables are employed as filmic sensors.
Another application, in the field of flexible circuitry, is represented by RFID antennas, where the control of products through the use of intelligent labeling is gradually replacing the barcode system: RFID labels allow a streamlined and digital management of the logistics of products.
To meet the growing demand for eco-sustainable materials, Coveme has introduced Kemafoil®ECO films for the printed circuitry market, made with 70% recycled PET (rPET).
The 70% of recycled PET comes from a recycling process in which post-consumer waste (plastic bottles, food trays, etc.) is recycled for the production of a rPET that has mechanical and physical properties comparable to those of virgin PET.
Coveme is IATF (International Automotive Task Force) certified for suppliers to the automotive industry, which certifies full compliance with global quality standards.
