SCHOTT to present flexible glass for the future market of printed electronics at LOPEC

The special glass expert SCHOTT will be presenting ultra-thin glasses that enable various functionalities in printed electronic components as a flexible substrate material (Hall B0, Stand 106) at the leading international trade fair for printed electronics LOPEC 2016 from April 6 – 7 in Munich.

In the Innovation Award from German Industry, which will be presented on April 16, 2016, SCHOTT managed to make it among the four finalists in the category large companies with its ultra-thin glass.

With a minimum thickness of 25 micrometers (microns), these innovative glasses are thinner than a human hair, flexible and yet robust. Thus they offer many advantages over other substrate materials such as plastics, metals or silicon. With properties such as minimum thickness and flexibility, which previously only polymers offered, they combine the classic chemical, physical and mechanical advantages of the inorganic material of special glass, such as transparency, optical quality, hermeticity (impermeability to humidity and oxygen), temperature stability, chemical resistance and mechanical strength. With these special qualities, the ultra-thin glass substrates from SCHOTT are an ideal material for use in printed and organic electronics.

SCHOTT will be presenting concepts on how it plans to transfer ultra-thin glass substrates into mass production for applications in organic and printed electronics together with development partners at LOPEC. 

Besides presenting products and solutions at its booth, SCHOTT also offers the following sources of information:

• Presentation at the conference that is being held simultaneously
