Components for Consumer Electronics

Component Name
Description
AFAR Films
AFAR protection films are suitable for a wide range of consumer electronics such as mobile phones, tablets, e-readers, notebooks and PC screens. They are ideal for touch screen kiosks, cash registers and ATM’s.
Bonding Pads Drawing on our vast range of adhesive tape products, Tecman manufactures a number of different size pads and shapes to offer rapid and cost effective method of fixing. Bonding pads and shapes often feature peel-off tabs, dry edges and finger-lift tabs to aid release liner removal significantly increasing the speed of assembly. Even a small feature such as these can remove up to 1 second per pad. That equates to over 50,000,000 seconds saved per annum (7 years of manual labour!)
Cushioning
Tecman works with a wide range of foams for cushioning and insulating applications. These include an extensive variety of densities, cell structures, composites, compression rates, conductivities and absorption rates. Working with materials from global leaders in foam technology such as Alveo Sekisui and Roger Corporation, we can remain at the leading edge of technology.
Gaskets Utilising leading edge materials with superior compression set, gaskets are manufactured to tolerances as low as +/- 50µm. Often using Poron foam as the core material, these foams offer the best performance in vibration resistance and cushioning protecting the most sensitive components from damage.
Seals Tecman work closely with Design and Engineering teams advising and supporting with design by introducing compact, lightweight seals which will offer resistance to water, dust and other contaminant ingression.
Sound Insulation Acoustic insulation forms a increasingly critical consideration within electronic design. Achieving improvements in acoustic insulation performance whilst looking for weight saving is a fine balance. This has led to the development of innovative materials which offer the highest levels of acoustic insulation whilst retaining significant weight savings over traditional materials used for acoustic insulation. Open cell and closed cell Urethane Polyether and Polyester foams, new technology semi-open cell EPDM and heavy layer dampening materials all make up our leading acoustic insulating materials.
Thermal Insulation Tecman have recently introduced an exciting new range of Thermal Management materials into their range. In line with our specialist materials, these products are all class leading products. Designed in Asia-Pacific for the huge consumer Electronics markets, we are pleased to be the first converter to introduce the range into the UK. Based on Synthetic and Natural Graphine technology these products are RoHS compliant, Halogen free and UL Certified. Being developed for such a highly competitive market has given the product not only a technology edge but also brings cost benefits into the EUK market.
Panel Bonding  With the increasing use of HMI technology, bonding panels has become increasingly important. Utilising both Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) and Thermally Activated Films (TAF) we can achieve the highest adhesion levels with the thinnest adhesive layers. Whether it is simply a decorative decal, surround or panel mount, we have proven technology for panel bonding applications.
Protection Films Clear protection films includes screen protectors for use during manufacture and shipping and anti-static films which are suitable for applications in the automotive and telecoms market. All our screen protectors have excellent anti-scratch properties with a proprietary hard-coating ideal for the aftercare market. All our films are optically clear, anti-glare and anti-fingerprint. A specially formulated high grade silicone adhesive is used to give optimum clarity and is cleanly removable leaving no residue behind after prolonged usage. Our clear protection films work very effectively on both capacitive and resistive touch-screens and are quick and easy to apply.
Screen Bonding Screen bonding is also an area of high development activity as active and passive touch screens are introduced into everyday objects. The resistive touch panel is made up of several layers, typically a Polyester film, top resistive circuit, conductive ITO film, a bottom resistive circuit layer and a glass or acrylic base. These materials are intricate highly sensitive and the adhesives used for bonding them are equally advanced. The conversion of the materials requires careful handling and highly accurate dimensional tolerances.
