Sabic’s New SMT-Capable ULTEM 3473 Resin Helps Reduce Weight Of RF Filters In 5G Macro Cells
5g is inevitable, despite having so many challenges related to manufacturing efficiency and increasing weight of antenna or other infrastructure components. The sudden rise in demand and inefficiency of metal to be processed in a short time has pushed the companies to seek out for polymers to replace metal.
SABIC has come up with exotic and high heat material Ultem to replace Aluminium in the RF Filter, which will certainly reduce the weight and increase the manufacturing efficiency of RF Filter or other antenna components. Further, it will undoubtedly increase the rate of commercial implementation of 5G across the globe.
