About P-Flex™

P-Flex™ is a single-face flex PCB manufactured using the Pure Additive™ method. Conventionally, electronic circuits have been manufactured by applying a method known as lithography, in which a thin metallic sheet is first applied to the board surface, and then unrequired sections are melted away.

Pure-Additive-method

The Pure Additive™ method (*) developed by Elephantech is a concept completely opposite to what had been used until now, using a proprietary manufacturing technology that prints metal nanoparticles with inkjet only on the necessary parts and grows metals by electroless plating technology.
(* Patent No. 6300213 acquired)

By reducing the amount of metal, liquid waste and man-hours, we can lessen manufacturing costs and shorten the lead time.
Elephantech will continue to reduce its environmental burden and contribute to the achievement of SDGs.
