„We are proud of having received this award for the development of our UV-curing epoxies“, said Sabine Herold, Managing Director of DELO Industrial Adhesives. „New technologies such as OLED displays are currently on the run and are already used for mobile phones. This means great potenzial for us as a manufacturer of tailor-made adhesives“. The Radtech Award gives an award to products using radiation curing technology in the sectors printing and packaging, industrial coatings and adhesives as well as automotive.

Display technologies such as OLED are on the rise
OLED-displays consist of organic substances and are very sensitive to humidity and oxygen. Therefore, the OLEDs need to be encapsulated between two glass plates. Here, the UV-curing epoxy resins of DELO come into use. The adhesive stands out by an extremely low permeation for oxygen and humidity. Moreover, the encapsulation compounds do not have to be thermally postcured; their functionality is achieved by pure light-curing. This leads to significantly shorter process cycles in mass production as well as to a great reduction in production costs.
On November 13th, 2007, Dr. Dietmar Dengler, Head of Research & Development at DELO, received the award from the Radtech Europe Association in Vienna. DELO has already been awarded the price for the second time . The Radtech Europe Association is a worldwide operating organization aiming to support and promote the use of light-curing technologies.About DELO:

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
