Energy Saving Electronic Device Plastic Applications Power Down!

SpecialChem / Donald Rosato – Jul 18, 2012

Plastics functionality is required in electrical and electronic (E/E) end use applications. When using plastics for electronic applications apart from mechanical properties, their electrical behavior is a decisive factor.

A street light concept drawn up DESIGNquadrat GbR incorporates Bayer MaterialScience experience in polycarbonate LED lenses. The Audi A8 LED lenses for low and full-beam headlights daytime running lights and turn signals make use of customized polycarbonate by Bayer MaterialScience.

Hella is using Sabic Innovative Plastics' new high heat polycarbonate copolymers, Lexan XHT. The Duluxstar Mini Candle series high-end retrofit CFL candle bulbs from Osram using Sabic's Lexan FXD PC resin offer much longer life and up to 80% lower energy consumption.

LG Hausys Ltd, a Korea-based company engaged in industrial material manufacturing, has introduced an energy efficient heated steering wheel. Reflective sheet based on Furukawa Electric's microcellular PET (MCPET) serves to increase illumination intensity between LED lamps for more balanced lighting.

The DIAGNOdent is a laser pen diagnostic tool produced by KaVo Dental GmbH using Ticona's Vectra E840i LDS LCP resin reduced energy consumption by 50%. Researchers at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) coated CNT (carbon nanotubes) with a fuel (cyclotrimethylene trinitramine) which acts as a power source with 100 times more electric power by weight...
