Materials science drives product innovation. For example, material scientists studied graphite and synthesized graphene — flat carbon, one molecule thick, and a semiconductor. Because it is astoundingly strong, flexible, and conductive, its potential uses are extraordinary, from medical diagnostics to display screens. When material scientists played with graphite, they created a galaxy of product possibilities.
Jabil is at the forefront of integrating advances like these into products and manufacturing techniques.
Making intelligent material choices — sapphire glass or clear plastic, carbon fiber or thermoplastic composite — requires a deep understanding not only of material technology, but also of manufacturing processes, resource availability, sustainability, and costs. And innovative choices bring up new mandates for testing, regulatory compliance, and quality control. Jabil has unmatched experience balancing all these factors, and that’s why the world’s most recognizable brands consistently partner with Jabil for end-to-end manufacturing services.
