Teknor Apex Company will feature a full range of compounds for the emerging 5G wireless infrastructure at Wire 2020 from March 30 to April 3 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The company has developed Apex PVC, Flexalloy PVC elastomer, and Halguard halogen-free low-smoke compounds for every component in the complex antenna cables required for the new infrastructure.

Compounds are available from Teknor Apex for these 5G antenna cable applications:

  • Buffers for high-speed data fibers at the core of the cable;

  • Jackets for the multi-fiber core;

  • Jackets for the bundles of 600-volt control cable surrounding the core; and

  • Sheathing for the entire construction.

“With the advent of 5G, the wireless antenna market is evolving away from large coaxial cables and toward composite constructions incorporating control and fiber optic cables,” said David Braun, wire and cable industry manager for the Vinyl Division. “These new constructions meet the needs of wireless telecom carriers, who are seeking to add new spectrum bands while lowering operating costs.”

Mr. Braun noted that the suite of compounds offered by Teknor Apex for these applications include variations that meet different specifications from each wireless carrier.

Teknor Apex offers specialty formulations for oil-resistance, UV-resistance, low- and high-temperature environments, and wet- and dry-rated insulations. Many Halguard non-halogenated low-smoke alternatives to PVC are available, including a stress crack-resistant compound for jacketing over corrugated metal armor.
