Damax Int., a developer of a new cellphone antenna technology, and United Plastics Group (UPG), a manufacturer of injection molded products for cellphones, have formed a strategic alliance in which UPG will manufacture Damax antennas and assist the company in the distribution of its antennas worldwide.

"The new technology eliminates nearly 100 percent of handset signal loss to the hand and head, more than doubles battery life, and reduces dropped calls. It also makes digital handsets, for the first time, hearing aid- compatible because it directs nearly 100 percent of handset's signals, which cause the noise, away from the head," said Greg Johnson, Damax CTO.

UPG operates 11 engineering and production facilities in the U.S., Mexico, U.K., and China. Damax antennas will be installed by UPG inside special handset back plates designed to keep user hands off the antenna, and matched to fit some of the latest model handsets sold worldwide.

Damax antennas are scheduled to be introduced to the market in Q2 of this year.
