Water barrier for ABS using IMM
Water barrier for ABS using IMM (In mold microstructure)
Petition / Problem
Condensation water generated in the part can cause electronics problems.
Generate a permanent water barrier through In Mold Microstructure (IMM).
Design of the microstructure. Transfer of the microstructured pattern by laser to the mold, optimization of the laser parameters.
Injection and optimization for optimal transfer.
Performing validation tests: contact angle, abrasion, resistance to temperature and humidity.
