TOKYO -- September 26, 2013

Nissan Chemical Industries, Ltd. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; President:
Kojiro Kinoshita) will exhibit at CEATEC JAPAN 2013 to showcase development
products intended for use with smartphone and tablet PC touch panels. The
products incorporate ‘HYPERTECH,’ a functional coating comprised of our
proprietary multi-branched organic nanoparticles (hyperbranched polymers).

Exhibit Information

1.UV-curable fingerprint resistant hard coating material
    This new grade of hard coating material has substantial abrasion
    resistance (to steel wool) at just half the thickness of existing products
    (2 - 3μm), while simultaneously achieving higher surface slip properties.
2.Ultra-high refractive index UV-curable coating material
    Our UV-curable coating solution has a maximum refractive index of
    1.79(@550nm) and consists of only organic material. Coating this solution
    onto ITO (indium tin oxide) or silver nanowire touch panel film electrodes
    makes it possible to effectively obscure underlying electrode patterns.
3.Low refractive index coating material
    The refractive index of this coating material after UV-curing is 1.39
    (@550nm). Unlike conventional fluorine coatings, this material can be
    coated in layers and has acid resistant properties. Using this in
    combination with the high refractive-index material, it is possible to
    render the electrode pattern even less conspicuous.
4.Electroless plating nucleating agent for inkjets
    This is a composite material of an ammonium-terminated hyperbranched
    polymer and metal Pd nanoparticles. This inkjet ink leverages the low
    viscosity characteristics of hyperbranched polymers to enable Cu or Ni
    plating for substrates such as glass or film to be applied solely on to
    areas to which they have been directly drawn.

Nissan Chemical’s booth number is 3C23. Nissan Chemical looks forward to
seeing you there.
