Focus on new materials for OLED applications

Merck and DELO Industrial Adhesives Form Strategic Partnership

Merck KGaA and DELO Industrial Adhesives announced today that they have formed a strategic partnership in the field of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology. Within the scope of their agreement, the companies plan to develop future system solutions for OLED applications. The companies will join forces to market OLED adhesive products from DELO through Merck’s extensive marketing and sales channels.

Picture: Sealed OLED-Display

In addition, Merck and DELO intend to develop innovative materials for improved OLED sealants that will facilitate the entry of OLEDs into large-format display applications. OLEDs show a high potential as the display technology of tomorrow and already are being used in MP3 players and cell phones. Within the OLED technology, Merck offers light-emitting materials while DELO offers new adhesive systems required to produce OLEDs.

Merck’s OLED materials are characterized by high quantum efficiency and longevity and the adhesives developed by DELO reliably seal off the sensitive metal layers from oxygen and moisture. This considerably extends the life of OLEDs.

About DELO Industrial Adhesives:

DELO Industrial Adhesives, located in Windach near Munich, Germany, manufactures customized industrial adhesives for applications within industries such as electronics, micro-electronics, chip-card, automotive, glass, plastic processing and optics. The company has 210 employees (status: March 31st, 2008) and a network of global agents and representative offices in Asia, the United States and Europe. Its OLED products focus on improved protection against humidity and oxygen, increased humidity resistance as well as simplified processing and curing.

About Merck:

Merck is a global pharmaceutical and chemical company with total revenues of € 7.1 billion in 2007, a history that began in 1668, and a future shaped by 31,681 employees in 60 countries. Its success is characterized by innovations from entrepreneurial employees. Merck's operating activities come under the umbrella of Merck KGaA, in which the Merck family holds an approximately 70% interest and free shareholders own the remaining approximately 30%. In 1917 the U.S. subsidiary Merck & Co. was expropriated and has been an independent company ever since.
