DELO wins RadTech Europe Award for Innovation

21.11.2007
DELO Industrial Adhesives receives the Radtech Europe Award for the development of UV-curing epoxies for OLED-displays. The prize is awarded by the Radtech Europe Association and goes to innovative technologies in the sector of radiation curing.

„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.

Im Focus: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
