New Advanced Polymer Formulations from PolyOne Benefiting 5G Telecom

PolyOne has developed new polymer formulations in response to highly innovative fifth generation (5G) telecommunications network development. These advanced materials will help increase speed to market and design flexibility for 5G base station antenna manufacturers.

Featuring Design Flexibility and Increased Speed

New customizable Edgetek Formulations for 5G feature specific Dk values and reduced dissipation factors (Df), enabling faster design qualification and shorter lead times. Another new formulation within this product family is compatible with SMT (surface mount technology), allowing greater design flexibility and increased speed to market for 3D circuit boards. Both materials can help 5G base station antenna manufactures to streamline their design and process development.

Telecom equipment manufacturers all over the world are readying themselves for the explosion of 5G,” said Flight Xu, general manager, Specialty Engineered Materials Asia for PolyOne. “We see 5G deployment as a tipping point in which seamless connectivity will become an expectation not only for mobile users, but for industry as well. We’re confident that our innovative material solutions and product development support will enable telecom manufacturers to make that expectation a reality.”

5G networks are forecast to bring notable benefits to the mobile phone and tablet user, and are also expected to have a major effect on emerging systems such as smart cities, AI devices, and industrial automation. These new materials can help manufacturers to meet consumer expectations, such as higher capacity, faster data transfer speeds and coverage in high density areas.
