Supplier of Maezio continuous fiber thermoplastic composites will host wearable tech and gaming accessories companies at CES 2019.

At the consumer product technologies conference CES 2019, which will be held Jan. 8-11, in Las Vegas, NV, US, Covestro (Pittsburgh, PA, US) will demonstrate how composite materials help bring next-gen technologies to market. 

Covestro will showcase applications utilizing its polycarbonates and polycarbonate blends tailored to electronics, IT and communications applications – materials said to offer high flowability, stiffness, toughness, heat resistance and flame retardance, as well as aesthetics. Also on display will be applications using the company’s next-gen Maezio continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composite.

Applications on display will include a wireless charging pad from KerfCase  (Pittburgh, PA, US) and a bracelet from Embr Labs (Cambridge, MA, US) that acts as a personal thermostat.
