Zhongxing Telecommunication Equipment Corporation (ZTE) selected Royal DSM's Arnitel TPE for the soft strap of its new smart watch ZTE Quartz.

The global wearables market is expected to double in size by 2021, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC). After its successful launch in China, ZTE Quartz is targeting global markets and the ZTE wearable is set to be a T-Mobile exclusive in the US.

"Wearables help ZTE bolster its position as a global leader in information technology," said Luo Wei, VP of ZTE Terminal Division, Head of Operator Product Department. "DSM has the comprehensive materials solutions we need to produce high-end products for the global wearables market. Arnitel TPE is helping us make the cutting-edge ZTE Quartz a resounding success in the market."

Wearables demand high performance materials that have the look of stylishness, the feel of comfort, and are easy to design and process.

DSM's Arnitel TPE is both safe and comfortable. The material meets ISO 10993 standards, and is rated USP Class VI, the highest classification for the biocompatibility of devices. It is resistant to perspiration, oils and other liquids that come into contact with wearable devices. he material is also highly resistant to UV rays, which prevents plastic aging.

Arnitel TPE can be processed easily by injection molding and can be used in overmolded structures with other thermoplastics such as ABS, thermoplastic polyesters or polycarbonate. It is free of halogen, red phosphorous and fluoropolymers, and is fully recyclable.

"We are very proud to be selected by ZTE, because ZTE is a respectable market leader and they have a very high standard of selecting materials," explained Martin Chen, Marketing Manager Electronics (Wearables) at DSM. "DSM began research and development in the smart wearable market in 2014, and we are happy to see that our intensive R&D efforts have paid off with the creation of state-of-art Arnitel TPE for the wearable industry."
