Kateeva Joins Forces with Sumitomo Chemical to Accelerate Adoption of Inkjet RGB OLED for Large-Size TV’s

Kateeva announced a key partnership with Sumitomo Chemical Company Ltd. The non-exclusive agreement calls for Sumitomo to pair its world-class inks with Kateeva's world-class YIELDjet platform to help speed affordable OLED TVs to market. The collaboration aims to make it easier for display manufacturers to deploy inkjet-printed Red Green Blue (RGB) OLED for large-size TVs. Success depends on achieving a perfect interaction of advanced materials and cutting-edge mass-production equipment. Kateeva and Sumitomo will cooperate to co-develop high-quality reference data for customers. They'll leverage Sumitomo inks and Kateeva's inkjet OLED mass-production platform to optimize the manufacturing process to achieve optimum OLED device performance. Customers that select the Kateeva/Sumitomo equipment/ink combination will benefit from the assurance of a tested and optimized solution. Kateeva's YIELDjet platform is a critical enabler of OLED mass production. The newly introduced YIELDjet FLEX product enables low-cost, high-yield Thin Film Encapsulation (TFE) for flexible OLED displays. It is the first product to emerge from the YIELDjet platform and offers an alternative to older less efficient vacuum evaporation technologies. The same platform can be applied to print RGB OLED TVs. Sumitomo Chemical's OLED material, which is the Polymer OLED (PLED) type, is suitable for printing, and enables effective mass production of large-size OLED displays. Sumitomo's PLED material has already achieved excellent performance for TV applications, and the company is continuously improving its material performance.
