SmartKem materials testing agreements with leading Asian companies

A number of leading Asian companies in the chemical and electronics sectors will test SmartKem's innovative organic semiconductor inks for use in printable electronics applications in products such as state-of-the-art eReaders, Tablet PC's, Smartphones and TV's.
 
SmartKem believe their products will allow for low-cost, high performance flexible electronic devices, using low temperature printing and coating methods. The agreements in place, demonstrate the strong market demand for these types of organic materials in the highly technological Asia region, and come following the recent appointment of SmartKem's Japanese representative, Dr.Hirai, as well as agents in both Korea and Taiwan.
 
Since its inception in 2009, SmartKem has demonstrated remarkable technological progress, moving rapidly from the early R&D stage into the supply of innovative organic semiconductor inks, formulated to deliver improved performance and improved manufacture of printable transistor arrays and organic circuits. July 2011 saw the company's materials outperform its competitors and achieve performance "better than amorphous-silicon", with impressive results in tests conducted by the UK's National Printable Electronics Technology Centre (PETEC)."
