Strong appearance of Evonik at FPD China Exhibition & Conference

The team of Evonik’s Electronic Solutions unit presented their innovative alternative for the processing of thin films in display fabrication at the FPD China in Shanghai being China’s largest fair for the display industry.

From March 18 to 20, Evonik showed at FPD China Exhibition solution-processable semiconductor, dielectric, etch-stopping and passivation materials applied in high-end future displays. Inks for Black Matrix applications topped off the demonstrated product portfolio. These innovative products can be used in a wide range of applications, including LCD, OLED displays, touch panels, flexible displays and printed electronics.

Evonik’s strong appearance was accompanied by a presentation given at FPD China Conference showing how compositions can easily be tuned to produce various types of products fitting each customer’s unique requirements.

“With China getting more and more important for the display market worldwide, our participation at the FPD China made perfect sense. We demonstrated that we are ready to enter the market of flat panel displays with our innovative solutions,” underlined Ralf Anselmann, head of Electronic Solutions. “Numerous conversations with customers, the high visitor frequency at our booth and the well-received presentation at the conference made it a big success.”

“With our semiconductor iXsenic® S we can already reach charge carrier mobilities of 15 cm2/Vs under normal conditions or even 50 cm2/Vs under ideal conditions,” added Kent Su, Senior Project Manager at Electronic Solutions. “The FPD China was the perfect occasion to let our customers know what we are capable of.”

The exhibition, covering the whole electronics value chain including semiconductor fabrication, display & touch screen manufacturing, high-tech equipment, materials, design and applications, attracted more than 60,000 professional attendees and 1000 exhibitors.
