Plastics in Electrical and Electronic Applications
Electricity Meets Plastics
Plastics used in electrical and electronic applications are subject to particularly stringent safety demands, including high flame retardance. And owing to the higher temperatures needed for lead-free soldering and because of their use in electric drives, the plastics employed must display pronounced thermal stability combined with mechanical strength. Demands are becoming increasingly stringent with thinner and thinner walls and less weight for lightweight construction. Other major developmental goals are electromagnetic shielding and, further down the road, electrically conductive plastics. Research in this area is being driven mainly by new energy and mobility concepts as well as by digital consumer devices. mehr...
