Development of Clay-type Heat Resistance Film based on Roll to Roll Manufacturing Process
Group of Japanese researchers at AIST have successfully developed a heat-resistance film made of clay and polyimide, showing an excellent thermal dimensional stability and heat resistance. The new film can be produced based on roll to roll production process, allowing it be produced at lower cost. The new film’s dimension does not change after heating it making it ideal to be used as printable electronic substrates.
Furthermore, its high water vapors barrier property; make it an ideal fit for solar cell back sheets. The researchers are expected to have the commercial product available within six months.
