Integran Launches Intebond ™ Adhesion Technology for Structural Metal-Polymer Hybrids

Mississauga, Canada | Posted on March 19th, 2012

Integran Technologies Inc. today announced the launch of their Intebond™ adhesion technology designed to enable the creation of high performance metal-polymer hybrid materials. This technology is a complement to Integran's core nanocrystalline "Nanovate™" electrodeposited structural metallization technology. "At Integran, we have developed world class adhesion processes for most base materials, but there are always a few that prove to be a challenge. Intebond™ is a game changer as it allows us to apply our Nanovate™ structural metal to almost anything," says Dr. Jon McCrea, R&D Manager at Integran.

The Intebond™ technology results in extremely high metal-to-polymer adhesion strength (peel and pull strength) and has been demonstrated on carbon fiber reinforced thermosets as well as a host of thermoplastics. Although Integran has existing processes for directly metallizing high stiffness thermoplastics such as polyether ether ketones (PEEK), polyphenylene sulfides (PPS) and polyetherimides (PEI) (e.g. Ultem®), Intebond™ provides another option for plastics that are difficult to metalize. Not only does the Intebond™ provide high metal adhesion to these materials, but it also effectively serves as a load transfer buffer between the underlying polymer and its structural exoskeleton resulting in augmented structural and functional performance properties in the form of weight-optimized metal-polymer hybrids.

High performance polymers are commonly used in applications requiring high stiffness-to-weight materials of construction. However, being polymeric, these materials are often limited in terms of structural and functional capability. In many cases, a thin structural cladding layer of high strength Nanovate™ metal to the outer surface of the polymer is an attractive way to provide critical metallic characteristics such as damage tolerance, electrical conductivity, and retention of design properties after exposure to elevated temperatures.

The Intebond™ adhesion technology allows for further penetration of Integran's advanced Nanovate™ nanometal-polymer hybrids in a wide array of industries and applications in the aerospace, defence, sporting goods, medical, and consumer electronics sectors.
