HOW MacBooks will be more DURABLE?
Apple Wins a Patent for Bonding Plastic to Titanium to provide future MacBooks with Superior Durability & more
U.S. Patent and Trademark Office officially published a newly granted patent of Apple’s that relates to a process of bonding plastic to metal, and more particularly to filling pores or other apertures in the metal with a material that bonds more strongly with the plastic than does the metal alone. While this creates a more durable product than metal alone, it could also provide a higher degree of waterproofing to the product.
In addition to providing a waterproof or other liquid-proof bond, the strength of the bonds between the materials may provide some degree of impact resistance to the electronic device. The increased bond strength thus results in a sturdier, more durable product.
