Wonderloy PC-545

PC/ABS with ultra-high heat resistance and high impact strength.  Halogen-free flame retardant, 1.2mm V-0, 2.5 mm 5VA.  Suitable for 5G devices that requires high heat resistance.

The advent of 5G technology is encouraging the creation of thousands of endpoint applications, from smartphones to routers, base stations to edge computers and mesh networks, to the ubiquitous support for autonomous driving and AR/VR experiences. No matter the endpoint, optimal performance greatly depends on mmWave signal transmission and heat management within the 5G device.

Optimal 5G signal transmission depends on much more than simply Dk and Df values of the antenna cover material. Cover design combined with finely tuned properties of the thermoplastic can allow maximum antenna performance, even in the harshest of environments.

5G transceivers also have the potential to generate significant heat in a smaller packaging space due to more on-board processing power and bandwidth demands. To maintain cool operational conditions, thermally conductive thermoplastics are often employed as the light-weight alternative to metal heat sinks.  Contact us for plastic materials that can dissipate heat.
