路博润参与合作生产的创新时尚功能性多科技通勤外套采用基于Flexible Electronics技术的按需加温功能

CLEVELAND, November 8, 2018 - The Lubrizol Corporation announces that it will unveil its fashion-functional Multi-Tech Commuter (MTC) Jacket at the IDTechEx Show! in Santa Clara, CA, November 14-15, 2018. The MTC Jacket was commissioned by Lubrizol with the purpose of demonstrating how solutions and supply chain partners can be integrated to deliver innovative, valuable solutions to the wearables market.


The MTC Jacket is the result of an impressive multiple-partner collaboration between leading experts including Lubrizol, Principled Design, ACI Materials, and Butler Technologies that took the project from concept to completion in just nine (9) months. The project underscores the importance of systems thinking in the development of novel wearable electronics -- combining design, material science, applications know-how, and value chain partners having the right mindset and capabilities - to quickly turn innovative ideas into prototypes and then commercial scale realities.


The process began with Lubrizol commissioning Despina Papadopoulos from Principled Design (New York, New York) to design and oversee development of Lubrizol's Multi-Tech Commuter Jacket, including development of the supply chain and contract assembly of jacket components into final garment form. "First and foremost, our jacket had to look good, feel good and be easy to maintain. In other words, we designed this jacket for humans," states Ms. Papadopoulos. The jacket showcases innovative technologies from Lubrizol's Engineered Polymers and Performance Coatings portfolios especially well-suited for Electronics including flexible hybrid electronics, wearables, mobile devices and accessories, and 3D printing.


To incorporate Lubrizol's highly flexible material solutions into a wearable platform, Principled Design then selected ACI Materials (Goleta, CA) for their expertise in conductive inks, encapsulants and resistance heater flexible circuit technology and Butler Technologies, Inc. (Butler, PA) for their proven capabilities in developing printed electronics, proof of concept and

prototyping. Each member of the team brought a deep understanding in their area of expertise and contributed to problem-solving relating to the advanced design, materials and the interplay between technology to deliver form, comfort and functionality.

Designed for stylish and functional street-to-office wearability, the Multi-Tech Commuter Jacket features Lubrizol materials that ensure function, comfort and durability over the life of the garment. 弹性牛仔布和聚酯纤维面料透气且伸展自如,带来舒适的运动性和活动性。 ACI's flexible circuit heating element with stretchable encapsulation providing protection for conductive traces located across the inside of the jacket's back provides warmth on demand - without the bulk of additional clothing layers. Fabric treatment at the elbows and palms with Lubrizol coating technology enhances garment durability both in-use and when laundering.


Lubrizol's MTC jacket can be seen at the IDTechEx Show! on November 14-15, 2018 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, in Lubrizol's booth (#N28), ACI Materials' booth (# T37) and Butler Technologies' booth (#A27), helping bring to life the theme of the event, "Connecting Emerging Technologies with Global Brands".
