Consumer products for multimedia applications are increasingly equipped with wireless charging capabilities. ELEKTRISOLA's Smartbond OSP18 has been developed to meet the needs of these specific charging systems. This self-bonding litz wire combines excellent bond strength with good windability, fast soldering and very good hot air bonding characteristics.

The hot air bonding process is environmentally preferred over solvent activation with the added benefits of faster coil production speed and potential for process automation. Smartbond`s very high bond strength guarantees consistent coil dimensions and performance attributes. Very thin coils can be produced with Smartbond`s unique construction giving additional space for designers to help achieve miniaturization goals.
