Our company supplies more than 13,500 products to various industries, such as optical films, adhesive tape, packaging materials and semiconductor-related materials based on our polymer film processing technologies. One of the main products is a transparent conductive film, which works as the touch sensor in mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet PCs. This product is an organic film coated with ITO (Indium-Tin Oxide) thin film using a roll to roll sputtering process which is our core technology. We are one of the few companies that can produce a wide variety of films coated with inorganic thin film on organic films in a large area with high quality.
Novel Piezoelectric Film:
We developed a novel highly transparent and temperature independent piezoelectric film by sputtering process and inorganic thin film material technology. This piezo film has a number of advantages:
Since conventional piezoelectric films use organic material, their piezoelectric properties decrease at about 100 degrees centigrade. On the other hand, our piezoelectric film can work even above 100 degrees
Conventional piezoelectric films have high haze value due to their crystal grain boundaries or other problems in transparency.
Our film has the advantage of high transparency in the visible light range.
Ability to detect and identify vibrational frequency, intensity, distribution, and vibrational modes in a large area.
We are seeking startups that are interested to develop new devices or systems with our piezoelectric film. For example:
-Startups that are involved in the development of smartphones and wearable devices and want to measure the vibration distribution in a plane
-Startups that have applications or ideas which can be solved using our piezoelectric film
-Startups that want to take advantage of film materials functionalized by our roll to roll sputtering process
We have worked with startups in the past to co-develop new applications in startups’ products using our company’s materials.
Startups meeting our criteria for potential collaboration would be involved in initial discussions with our Silicon Valley Office and relevant Technical Department(s) in Japan.
