DuPont Microcircuit Materials and DuPont Teijin Films will exhibit at the FlexTech Alliance 10th Annual Flexible Electronics and Displays Conference & Exhibition, from February 7 - 10 in Phoenix, AZ.
DuPont Microcircuit Materials has over 40 years of experience in the development, manufacture and sale of specialized ink compositions for a wide variety of electronic applications in the display, photovoltaic, automotive, biomedical, industrial and telecommunications markets, and features a broad and growing portfolio of inks for a wide variety of substrates suitable for many new Printed Electronics applications.
DuPont Teijin Films is a 50:50 global joint-venture between DuPont and Teijin, and the world's leading manufacturer of high-performance polyethylene terephthalate (PET) films for LCDs , touchscreens, and printed electronic applications, and polyethylene naphthalate (PEN) films for flexible electronics and displays, will demonstrate its newest range of products, including: Melinex® ST™ thin, stabilized polyester film for touch screen technologies; adhesive-coated PET and PEN films for mount/demount applications where a carrier is used for processing; planarized PET and PEN films now available commercially for flexible displays and thin-film products; and, heat-stabilized optical-grade PEN films now being widely adopted in the emerging high performance flexible electronics market.
Two key technical presentations from DuPont will be featured at the show:

Materials Demands to Enable Solar Industry Growth By Nathan Arbitman, DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions
Abstract: Achieving grid parity will require increasing the efficiency and reliability and decreasing the cost of photovoltaic systems. PV materials play a critical role in total system performance, reliability and cost. PV materials innovations, along with significant capacity expansions, will hold the key to enabling grid parity over the coming years as strong PV market growth continues to put significant demands on materials suppliers. This presentation will highlight some of the key issues that materials suppliers face to meet these demands and offer some examples of PV materials innovations from DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions.

3:45 PM - 5:50 PM Session 7, 8 - Substrates Materials
Latest Developments in Polyester Film for Flexible Electronics and Photovoltaics By Bill MacDonald, DuPont Teijin Films
Abstract: DuPont Teijin Films (DTF) have developed engineered substrates for the flexible electronics market and for applications requiring good dimensional reproducibility and high surface smoothness over wide areas. Teonex® Q65FA and Melinex® ST506 are emerging as suitable substrate materials for flexible display backplanes and frontplanes. This contribution will discuss the impact of these films on flexible electronic and display processing and in particular will present new information on a model developed to predict the bow associated with processing Teonex® Q65FA on a rigid carrier . This presentation will also discuss the likely flexible substrate property set for flexible PV and discuss the latest advances in developing films with enhanced weatherability.
