Swiss start-up transforms high-performance materials into extreme-performance materials

Swiss start-up INCAPTEK invented unique dielectric materials with ultra-low dielectric constant for next-generation electronics and wireless systems. Pushing technological boundaries.

Never before were dielectrics so close to air! With the goal to revolutionise industries with novel solutions, they offer other materials with unrivalled performance, from fibre-reinforced composites and foams to unique polyimide pushing technological boundaries in many industries, from electronics, automotive and aerospace to medtech.

Unique dielectric materials

Novel dielectric material with ultra-low dielectric constant
Microcontainer film technology to produce novel dielectric materials

INCAPTEK designed unique dielectric materials (polyimide nanofibre non-woven fabrics, air-saturated microcontainer films and air-microcapsules) with an ultra-low dielectric constant, close to air.

Their material makes it possible to design next-generation high-frequency/high-density electronics, supercomputing and radiocommunication devices, such as 6G/next-G. They make the impossible possible.

Polyimide nanofibre non-woven fabrics

Their technology finds many applications. For example, nanofibre non-woven fabrics can be used as lithium-ion battery separators. Surprisingly, microcontainer films, when filled with drugs, can be used as next-generation coatings for implantable medical devices to prevent infections.

Fibre-reinforced composite materials with impressive mechanical properties

Thinking outside the box, INCAPTEK also developed a cost-efficient technology to produce best-on-the-market fibre-reinforced composite materials with impressive mechanical properties for prepregs, injection moulding, and additive manufacturing. Extremely strong and durable but also ultralight, INCAPTEK’s composites are ideal construction materials for aerospace and automotive. The same technology can be also used in medtech to produce medical implants.

Fibre-reinforced polyimide foams

INCAPTEK developed another cost-effective technology with a flexible material design to produce flame, chemical, and radiation-resistant fibre-reinforced polyimide foams with excellent insulating, thermal, and mechanical properties for aerospace and automotive industries. Due to low dielectric constant and durability, these foams can also be used for enclosing 6G/next-G radar antenna enclosure (radome) to reduce signal attenuation.

Recrystallisable polyimide

Innovation being at the core of INCAPTEK’s business, they also offer a unique-on-the-market recrystallisable polyimide (iPI) with the best-in-class combination of mechanical strength and thermal resistance for thermoplastic resins. When reinforced with carbon fibres, iPI attains a record-breaking mechanical strength with the highest maximum service temperatures for thermoplastics. Its excellent processability and compatibility with additive manufacturing and injection moulding make iPI an excellent material for high-demanding applications in aerospace, automotive, medtech and other industries.
