Main Characteristics of P-Flex™ PET

It is inexpensive to mass produce compared to polyimide base materials, and it is suitable for environments with high or extreme humidity due to it being resistive to absorbing moisture. Also, parts other than the pattern or components can have a transparent appearance when transparent resist is used.

About P-Flex™

Pure-Additive-method

When compared to conventional manufacturing processes of flexible substrates, the unique manufacturing method (*) of "printing metal only on the necessary parts by inkjet and using plating technology to grow the metal" has shortened the production process and succeeded in reducing both manufacturing cost and lead time as well as handling prototyping and mass production more flexibly.
