DuPont & Holst Centre Collaborate On Printed Electronics Research

BRISTOL, UK and EINDHOVEN, Netherlands --- DuPont Electronics & Communications (DuPont) and Holst Centre announce the third extension of their long-term collaboration, which is focused on advanced materials for the printed electronics industry. As a full partner in the Printed Electronics program, DuPont will contribute new materials and research samples targeted toward Holst’s active projects in the areas of wearable electronics, in-mold electronics, consumer electronics and healthcare.

In this next phase, the emphasis of the collaboration will be on developing and testing complete complementary material systems and successfully creating working demonstrators and prototypes, with the development of commercial products as the end goal. In particular, the collaboration will focus on screen printed and ink-jet electronic inks and pastes, flat bed and roll-to-roll processing, and conventional oven as well as photonic curing/sintering systems.

Over the life of the DuPont/Holst Centre collaboration, results have included the development of new nano-Ag inks and pastes, leading to the commercialization of DuPont’s best in class conductive ink-jet silver ink, PE410, announced and featured at LOPEC in Munich, Germany, in April 2016. Most recently, Holst presented their wearable smart shirt design in the DuPont booth at the Wearables Expo in Tokyo, Japan, from Jan. 18-20, 2017. Other achievements have included the successful implementation of DuPont inks and pastes enabling production of smart garments, flexible sensors and smart blister medical packaging, as well as in-mold electronics, and Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) and Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) lighting demos and prototypes.
