Chandler, Arizona – Rogers Corporation has expanded its Poron 4790-92 family of soft, slow-rebound PU foams. The company says the new product, Poron 92PL, is extra soft, but has increased cohesive strength for easier processing.
The material is also claimed to be conformable yet returns to its original shape, allowing for long-term performance in smart devices such as smartphones, laptops, tablets and smart wearable devices.
With the same compressive forces and compression set resistance as other material solutions within the range, Poron 92PL PU is aimed at design engineers looking for an extra soft, slow rebounding formula that does not compromise on sealing or compression performance.
'The design of electronic devices is becoming increasingly more challenging,’ said Stephanie Zhang, who works in the company’s elastomeric material solutions business. ‘The attributes of Poron 92PL material allow for more accurate and precise die cutting.’
