From the board level to the external housing, Henkel leads in holistic solutions for modern wearables. Materials that enable electrical interconnect, products to protect electronics from challenging environments, thermal interface materials to facilitate heat transfer and raise reliability and strong, yet thin, structural adhesives unite to provide a comprehensive portfolio that is helping Henkel customers bring some of the most exciting new wearables to market.

Henkel Materials in Smart Watches

Traditional wearables products like fitness bands and smart watches, while still quite prevalent, have seen other technologies such as augmented and virtual reality devices join the popularity ranks among electronic devices worn on the human body. As the wearables landscape has expanded so too have the challenges in designing and manufacturing devices with increasingly complex dimensions, unfailing flexibility requirements and demanding functionality expectations. The integration of form and function in tandem with high production volumes continues to drive the need for improved process efficiencies, device reliability, design-enhancing techniques and robust bonding mechanisms to facilitate multi-material products

Virtual Reality (VR) Devices

As Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) devices become more complex and functional and their uses extend well beyond conventional gaming applications, unfailing reliability and comfort is required. Through close customer partnership, engineering know-how and global application support, Henkel helps AR/VR manufacturers develop and produce lightweight, power-conserving, high-functioning devices at reduced manufacturing cost.
