„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.

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.
