Development of High Performance Polyester film with World’s Highest Level of Protection of UV light
Teijin Dupont Film Japan has announced the development of a new high performance polyester film featuring world’s highest level of ultra violet light protection. The new film incorporates unique technologies for UV absorption agent capable of blocking UV radiation for as much as 390nm, or nearly 100% of all harmful ultraviolet light. The UV protection properties are incorporated in the film itself eliminating any needs for additional coating as required with conventional films. Since the impurities produced during coating, by eliminating the coating the new film’s production would produce only one-tenth the amount of impurities compared to conventional film production, helping to reduce the overall cost.
Its application includes window glass and films protecting electronics materials, where the demand is expected to grow for protection of high performance devices such as organic electrolumionescent (EL) devices, electronic paper as well as other next generation devices. The can also be used as polymer conductive materials in next-generation solar cells and organic semiconductor materials.
