OLEDs are not only thin and lightweight with excellent energy saving
characteristics but also have outstanding high-definition color
reproducibility. Although market expansion was forecasted, OLED use was
limited by inherent traits including deterioration from contact with moisture
and oxygen. In addition, sealing technology was a prime issue in development
of more flexible and larger displays. Mitsui Chemicals’ OLED sealing material
“Structbond^TM XMF-T”, with its high barrier properties, moisture resistance,
transparency, and process manageability, resolved these issues.

“Structbond^TM XMF-T” allows innovative advances in sealing methods for
displays thereby allowing greater flexibility and strength. “Structbond^TM
XMF-T” technology contributes to LG Electronics G Flex’s high market
reputation for its highly usable curved surface design and durable
high-definition display.

With “Structbond^TM XMF-T”, the design flexibility of OLEDs is greatly
enhanced allowing wider and increased applications including wearable
electronics and lighting. Mitsui Chemicals, through this and its many other
products, will continue to contribute to a better future for people around the
world.
