A composite formulation and composite product are disclosed. The composite formulation includes a polymer matrix having metal particles, the metal particles including dendritic particles and tin-containing particles. The metal particles are blended within the polymer matrix at a temperature greater than the melt temperature of the polymer matrix. The tin containing particles are at a concentration in the composite formulation of, by volume, between 10% and 36%, and the dendritic particles are at a concentration in the composite formulation of, by volume, between 16% and 40%. The temperature at which the metal particles are blended generates metal-metal diffusion of the metal particles, producing intermetallic phases, the temperature being at least the intermetallic annealing temperature of the metal particles.

The invention relates to a connector housing assembly (1) for an electrical connector assembly (2), comprising a connector housing (3) and a mating connector housing (5), which are configured to be connected to each other in a first position (7) at a respective connecting section (13) by being moved along a plug direction (11) towards each other. The connector housing (3) further comprising a cable-side receptacle (23) for a cable (33), the receptacle (23) opening in a cable direction (19) and the mating connector housing (5) comprising a contact-side receptacle (25) for a cable (33) and/or at least one contact element (51), the receptacle (25) opening in a contact direction (21), both receptacles (23, 25) being located at an end opposite the connecting section (13) in the respective connector housing (3, 5). The invention further relates to an electrical connector assembly (2) comprising such a connector housing assembly. Connector housing assemblies (1) and electrical connector assemblies (2) of the prior art are constructed for being plugged in a first position and are not adapted to be utilized in a configuration allowing a different plug angle.


The invention relates to an electric connector (5) with a U-shaped locking lever (9), which is held rotatably around an axis of rotation (11) in the electric connector (5) for engagement to a complementary electric connector (7) and relates to an electric connector assembly (1) comprising an electric connector (5) with a U-shaped locking lever (9) held rotatably around an axis of rotation (11) in the electric connector (5) from an open position (13) to a locked position (89), a complementary electric connector (7) adapted to be connected to the electric connector (5), wherein, in the locked position (89) of the locking lever (9), the electric connector (5) and the complementary electric connector (7) are engaged in a primary lock (117). Electric connectors (5) and electric connector assemblies (1) of the prior art have the disadvantage that the primary lock (117) may be disengaged by chance or by misuse. The inventive electric connector (5) solves this problem by providing the locking lever (9) with a secondary locking member (37) for additional engagement to the complementary electric connector (7), wherein the secondary locking member (37) is fixed to the locking lever (9) slidably along an insertion direction (38), which is substantially perpendicular to the axis of rotation (11), into the locking lever (9) from a first (123) to a second position (125). The inventive electric connector assembly (1) solves this problem by providing the locking lever (9) with a secondary locking member (37) which is adapted to be slid on the locking lever (9) perpendicular to the axis of rotation (11) into engagement with the complementary electric connector (7) to form a secondary lock (119).
