Interlink Electronics' And MacDermid's Autotex® AM Brings Exceptional Hygiene Levels To AM™ Sensor Line

Interlink Electronics, Inc. (OTC: LINK) announced today that MacDermid Autotype Ltd has provided the ideal antimicrobial film for the Interlink Electronics AM™ Sensor Line, an enhanced range of force, position and mouse pointing sensors. Autotex® AM, a high specification antimicrobial film, has enabled Interlink Electronics to achieve an exceptional level of hygiene in its AM™ Sensor Line products, resulting in an innovative product range that stands apart from its competition.

Interlink Electronics is one of the world's leading innovators of human-machine interface design serving a global customer base. With growing evidence from a number of studies that everyday objects and surfaces can support bacteria that can cause odors and stains, Interlink Electronics wanted to design a range of force, position and mouse pointing sensors that would provide the best possible antimicrobial protection for applications where cleanliness is critical.

Interlink Electronics required a solution for the three individual AM™ Sensor Line products: VersaPad®, a touchpad solution that can be used with a finger, stylus or glove; The Force Sensing Linear Potentiometer (FSLP) Sensor, a solution for capturing position and force simultaneously in compact applications; and the Ring Sensor, which is used for capturing the rotary position in, for example, medical equipment. For all of these solutions a robust, resilient antimicrobial surface was critical so Interlink Electronics turned to MacDermid Autotype for a solution.

Declan Flannery, Managing Director, FSR Business Unit of Interlink Electronics, explained how the corporation went about researching and testing the best materials for this product and why they chose the MacDermid Autotype film Autotex® AM. "Our previous experience with MacDermid Autotype led us to Autotex® AM. We compared it with other products on the market, but the ease of introducing this value added feature on our existing products meant it was the obvious choice. Based on our previous experience with Autotex® meant we did not have to go through extensive requalification of the material. We only needed to review the antimicrobial properties which reduced the time for product introduction."
