The new tracking watches use PolyOne's GLS thermoplastic elastomer
Thermoplastic elastomers from PolyOne have been chosen for an innovative product designed to help parents keep children safe.
Filip Technologies produced the FiLIP 2, a wearable phone and locator for children, in order to help families stay connected. It uses GPS, Wi-Fi location, and GSM technology built into a watch-like design.
To create the product, the PolyOne’s soft-touch GLS TPE material was overmoulded onto an underlying rigid thermoplastic. The FiLIP 2 was produced in a number of different colours for added visual appeal.
