Digital transformation is bringing immediate and significant challenges to the communications industry. 5G adoption, growth of hyperscale data centers, and expansion of the Internet of Things all require the communication infrastructure to handle increasing quantities of data effectively on a global scale. Fibre optics offer significantly greater bandwidth potential and are increasingly favoured over traditional co-axial cables.
These trends are driving the need for stricter requirements on polymers used for optical fibre constructions, such as those for tight buffers, loose tubes, and jacketing. Preferred performance benefits include:
Crastin® PBT is the resin of choice for cost-effective, high-performance optical fibre cables across a wide range of electrical and electronic applications. Specific benefits for optical fibre cables include strong mechanical properties, contributions to a stable manufacturing process, and low signal attenuation attained by:
