HOW MANY Gs DO YOU NEED?
The technology that changes from generation to generation is now progressing without slowing down from generation to generation, but by surprising us even more from week to week and day by day, by developing it as hardware at the same time. While some people complain about the removal of personal boundaries with the introduction of mobile phones, it is another irony that these people today make these determinations via 4G. We both complain about the phones and we cannot do without them.
While mobile phones are revolutionized with 3G, everything has suddenly turned into a mobile life with 4G. Business and private lives are lived transparently and even psychologically in a mobile world. Well, it is not known what happens when 5G is widely used, but 5G is about to enter our lives with full speed, with the help of high performance plastics.
The coronavirus outbreak does not seem to slow the spread of fifth generation (5G) wireless technology, and high-end polymers continue to play an important role in building the infrastructure required to realize the benefits of these ultra-fast data networks.
The Consumer Technology Association’s US Consumer Technology One-Year Sector Forecast estimates that 5G-enabled smartphones will contribute $ 43.8 billion in revenue in 2021, up 296 percent from this year. Material suppliers are diligently working to develop the resins and compounds required to meet the required high temperature, durability and transparency specifications. Clariant says the phosphorus-based flame retardants in the Exolit OP and Exolit EP lines have all the right properties to support the required properties. The high phosphorus content, available as both a liquid processable product (Exolit EP) and very fine powders (Exolit OP), offers high efficiency at low doses. Kaneka Corp. developed Pixeo IB, a super heat resistant polyimide film for high speed, high frequency 5G. Pixeo IB reduces the dielectric loss tangent at high frequencies to 0.0025, the global best level for polyimide film. Toray Industries Inc. has created a polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) film that retains the polymer’s dielectric properties, flame retardancy, and chemical strength while remaining thermally resistant at 40 ° C. Dow Inc. It recently launched a one-piece, thermally conductive gel developed to dissipate large amounts of heat from sensitive electronic components. DOWSIL TC-3065 Thermal Gel easily fills gaps thanks to its excellent wetting ability and can replace fabricated elastomeric thermal pads that cannot protect electronics from the high heat associated with the higher power densities of 5G. SABIC says it plans to increase its global production capacity for proprietary Noryl SA9000 polyphenylene ether (PPE) resin used in high-performance printed circuit boards that require copper-clad laminates (CCLs) used in 5G base stations. This latest expansion will almost double regional production in Asia and increase overall Noryl SA9000 resin production in Asia tenfold compared to 2018 levels. SABIC adds that its portfolio also includes LNP compounds and copolymers, Ultem resin and other specialty materials for 5G base stations, terminals and mobile devices, including NORYL resins and oligomers. So as the 5G revolution is in full swing, plastic suppliers are at the forefront and are helping to make it happen.
As you can see, it is not enough for technology to be fast, the main thing is to spread it. When it comes to solving the problem, the usual plastics come to our rescue.
