Visitors will be introduced to a range of innovative technologies for displays, including liquid crystal and photoalignment materials from DIC Corporation, nanosilver and border inks for form and function, conductive pastes and inks for electroluminescent lighting, tapes and adhesives and optical materials.
“Our customers are looking for a partner that can develop tailor-made materials for a range of display applications,” said Christine Medordi, marketing manager, Sun Chemical. “Visitors at Display Week 2017 can learn about our custom solutions for liquid crystal, printed antenna, lighting, CIDs, HUDs, and components assembly.”
During the show, Sun Chemical will present liquid crystal and photoalignment materials from DIC Corporation. DIC’s liquid crystal materials deliver low viscosity, fast off-response in a range of temperatures, and are optimized for homogenous, hybrid or homeotropic alignment.
For crisp patterning of liquid-crystalline alignment, Sun Chemical will also display DIC’s photoalignment materials, which provide high sensitivity as well as colorless and irreversible reaction in a 313nm wavelength.
Sun Chemical’s range of inks for displays deliver both functionality and decoration. Screen-printable, fine-line PTF silver conductive inks from the SunTronic NANOSILVER family deliver exceptionally high conductivity in 50-micron-wide lines. Sun Chemical recently expanded its EMD5000 range with both inkjet- and aerosol-jet printable conductive inks for high print resolution, the best performing low-temperature sintering properties, and adhesion to a variety of substrates.
With its recent acquisition of Gwent Electronic Materials, Sun Chemical has further strengthened its printed electronics offering with tailor-made conductive inks and pastes for thin, long-life electroluminescent lighting.
Sun Chemical will also present screen-printable border inks for customized print on displays.
DAITAC PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) tapes from DIC Corporation offer diverse functionality to help build displays. From light shielding, conductivity and EMI shielding, to repulsion resistance and flexible printed circuits (FPC) attachment, DIC’s PSA tapes deliver excellent adhesion and holding strength to various materials. Specialized chemistries of DAITAC tapes produce low VOCs, are halogen- and acid-free, and are opaque for ultra-thin light shielding while exhibiting excellent adhesion and durability.
Optically clear adhesive (OCA) tapes from DIC Corporation will also be showcased and are available in a variety of thicknesses, offer good anti-bubbling properties, and exhibit exceptional workability. Optical films from DIC Corporation are optimized for HUDs, mirrors, meter cluster panels and CIDs.
