Nanotechnology comes to the inkjet printing industry
P o l yme r t r o n i c s , a UK based company in Banbury is developing a nanotechnology technique which will allow digital inkjet printing and instant curing of flexible electronic components.
Polymertronics has a patent pending on a technique which combines organic semiconductor fabrication technology with ultra-violet (UV) curing techniques, to cure and fix the electronics onto media that can include vinyl, plastics, glass and metal.
OLEDs can then be printed using flatbed or roll-to-roll printer platforms and powered by a low voltage battery source.
Polymertronics’ products are designed to be bolted onto existing printing infrastructure, making them more cost effective.
