Mobile phone case materials what are

This cell phone case, does not mean the daily purchase of mobile phone protective shells, but the body material of the phone itself. Mobile development today, shape variety, innovative design, which are inseparable from the materials science, we might as well take a look at what types of materials are used in a mobile phone products.

Engineering plastics

Engineering plastics are common. Engineering is the industrial estate were used as industrial parts or housing material plastic, is strength, impact resistance, heat resistance, high hardness and resistance to aging of the plastic. Japan industry defines it as “can be used as structural and mechanical components used in high-performance plastics, heat resistance at 100 ℃, which is mainly used in industry”. Common types of PC, such as ABS, nylon, alum.

Average project cost is low, are commonly used in the manufacturing industry in the traditional mobile phones have a very large part of the material. However due to the diverse engineering plastics, engineering plastics, of experience with different types of materials used are not the same. Ted Baker iPhone 6

Kevlar material

Kevlar Kevlar composites, features: low density, high strength, good toughness, high temperature resistance, easy processing and molding, and people pay attention to. The tensile strength of Kevlar can be up to 5 times of steel wire of the same diameter. Kevlar material is mainly used for ultra high strength and high modulus fiber, high strength, high modulus composite plastic can also be used as reinforcing material, used in spacecraft and missile shells. Since “Kevlar” materials tough wear resistance, hardness, and Rob with a knife into a special talent, called on the military “Armored Guard.”

Motorola razor XT910 is Kevlar material, not only feel good, very wear-resistant, protect the body from damage.

Carbon fiber materials

Carbon fiber is made with organic fiber carbon and graphite are microcrystalline graphite processing materials. Carbon fibre not only has the natural intrinsic characteristics of carbon material, both soft processing of textile fibers, is a new generation of reinforcement fibres. Carbon fiber with excellent mechanical properties, and its specific gravity less than steel 1/4, 7~9 times the tensile strength of steel. Carbon fiber products have increasingly been favored by our customers, applications from a high-end aerospace, machinery and military slowly in people’s daily use of sports equipment, medical equipment and decoration changes, use more and more.

Nokia 8800ca is the carbon fiber material. 8800ca uses a slider design, machine in use has a good texture, and carbon fiber material to create body also is the reason the prices are too expensive.

Titanium alloy material

Titanium is developed in the 1950 of the 20th century, an important structural metals, corrosion resistance of titanium alloy with high strength, good, high heat resistance and is widely used in various fields. In many countries of the world have recognized the importance of titanium alloy materials, have to research and development, and has been applied.

Regal Titanium released luxury phone maker Gresso phone adopts titanium alloy materials. The phone can withstand a certain intensity of impact, and doesn’t leave a trace. Its titanium alloy casing with corrosion features, high salinity, sun exposure and humidity environment can cope with. Moreover, only 130 grams of the fuselage is not heavy, only a bit heavier than the iPhone 5.

Aluminum-magnesium alloy materials

General main elements are the aluminium aluminium-magnesium alloy, and then mixed with a small amount of magnesium and other metals to strengthen its hardness. Strong and light weight of aluminum-magnesium alloy, low density, good heat dissipation, compressive resistance, its hardness is several times than traditional plastic casing, but only the latter one-third. Silver magnesium alloy shell can make the product more luxurious, beautiful and easy to paint, can be personalized by surface treatment process into powder blue and pink, this is as compared to engineering plastics and carbon fiber.

Sony LT28h adopts aluminum-magnesium alloy materials. Benefits from material advantages, this machine feel than plastic models such as LT26i, the whole is more superior. Ted Baker note 3 covers

Ceramic materials

Ceramic materials are mostly oxides, nitrides, borides and carbides, etc. Common ceramic clays kaolin, alumina, and so on. General hardness of ceramic material, but is less malleable. Except for use in food, decoration, also plays an important role in the development of science and technology. Ceramic materials are the original Earth resources formed after extraction of clay.

There are already on the phone using a ceramic material, this design will be blue and white, pastels and ceramic cultural elements into the phone. Ceramic Mobile Shell is made of nano-ceramic materials, high temperature firing from more than 1300 degrees, combined with electronic parts, better display of porcelain culture.

In addition, the previously rumored Samsung Galaxy S3 will cover made of ceramic material, but ultimately to achieve.

Future technology: liquid metal

Rumored iPhone 5 will use liquid metal before, but the new product releases did not use, but this does not prevent the user’s focus on liquid metal. Is the trade name of a new type of metal alloy liquid metal, an alloy that has the unique atomic structure similar to glass. Liquid metal with tough, scratch, corrosion resistance and recovery characteristics, can accurately cut into a variety of complex shapes, using its products in toughness and appearance have been greatly improved.

Now Apple’s exclusive patent on liquid metal technology, has been applied on the iPhone card PIN.
