DuPont Displays officially opens OLED materials scale-up facility

DuPont has been developing its suite of advanced OLED materials for the last 15 years, and these materials are suitable for both solution and evaporative applications

DuPont Displays (DuPont) has announced the opening of a state-of-the-art, scale-up manufacturing facility designed to deliver production scale quantities of advanced materials that enable large-format, solution-based printed OLED displays. These materials are designed to help manufacturers develop OLED displays that are brighter, more vivid, longer lasting and significantly less expensive than the OLED TVs on the market today.

The facility is located at the DuPont Stine-Haskell Research Center (Stine-Haskell) in Newark, Del., near DuPont’s global headquarters in Wilmington has large-scale formulation systems and can support simultaneous production of multiple product lines.

DuPont’s new scale-up facility is sized to meet the future growth expectations of the OLED TV industry, which industry analysts predict will increase by over 70% for the next several years and will require large quantities of highly sophisticated OLED materials.

DuPont has been developing its suite of advanced OLED materials for the last 15 years, and these materials are suitable for both solution and evaporative applications due to their long lifetime and deep colour.

In addition to its recently announced collaboration with Kateeva to advance solution printed displays, DuPont is actively engaged with the leading OLED display manufacturers to bring solution printed OLED technology to market as quickly as possible.

The project was partially funded by a grant from the state of Delaware in 2012, with DuPont investing more than US$20 million in the facility.

Avi Avula, global business director, DuPont Displays, said, "Materials are critical to the performance of an OLED TV and we are confident that DuPont has the best performing solution OLED materials available in the market today." Avi added, "Our vision is that OLEDs will become the display standard and to make that vision a reality, we are focused on helping our customers bring the cost of large sized OLED TVs down to less than US$1000 by 2020."

According to DuPont Displays the company brings more than 15 years of experience in enabling evaporative and solution-based OLED technologies through advanced materials that deliver the colour, efficiency and lifetime performance that display manufacturers and consumers demand. DuPont offers highly engineered, next-generation OLED materials as well as solution process know-how that makes the promise of lower cost OLED technology commercially feasible for TVs and other large-format displays.
