Adhesive manufacturer signs JV with barrier film specialist

Henkel : 29 May, 2014  (Application Story)
Henkel Adhesives Technologies has signed a joint-development agreement with US-based Vitriflex, a company which has developed a unique ultra-barrier film technology that utilizes a proprietary roll-to-roll delivery technique.
Adhesive manufacturer signs JV with barrier film specialist
Founded in San Jose, California in 2010, Vitriflex' barrier films protect electronic components against moisture and oxygen ingress. The invention offers the first cost-competitive flexible barrier film technology for the display market. Under the terms of its agreement with Henkel, the ultra-barrier film innovator will work with Henkel technology experts to develop customised, integrated barrier films for flexible displays.
 
The integration of ultra-barrier films into electronic applications requires robust adhesion to and compatibility with a variety of substrates. Henkel has extensive knowledge of adhesive formulation as well as the global resources and network among display device manufacturers needed to enforce a quick market-launch of the new technology.
 
“This investment and collaboration will open the door to some very exciting future opportunities,” says Mark Popovich, Henkel Electronics Group Corporate Vice President Global Marketing. “With Vitriflex’s profound expertise in ultra-barrier film design and manufacturing, and Henkel’s adhesive formulation proficiency, the market could soon see the first truly cost-competitive encapsulation product for high-volume flexible display production.”
