Encapsulix SAS has announced that it has received an order from a leading OLED lighting supplier in Europe. The system will be used for manufacturing of OLED lighting applications serving the residential, commercial, automotive, and avionics markets.
The order was awarded to Encapsulix SAS , an Atomic Layer Deposition equipment company based in France with offices in the US after an extensive evaluation of available ALD equipment suppliers of barrier and encapsulation coatings.
The Infinity ALD equipment platform was developed by Encapsulix SAS to address the universal need for geometrically scaled barrier coatings. These coating are on the order of 10-100nm in thickness, with substrate sized ranging from 200mm to over 1 Meter by 1 Meter. The Infinity tm M500 system ordered is capable of processing a 400mm by 500mm substrate ( e.g. glass or sheet to sheet flexible) . This particular tool will be configured for Gen2 glass. The Infinitytm ALD family of equipment is configurable for any size substrate beyond Gen5.5 and in a Roll to Roll configuration for up to 1 Meter web widths.
"We are pleased that after an extensive evaluation Encapsulix SAS was selected as the supplier of barrier coating manufacturing solutions." stated Dr. Jacques Kools, founder and CEO of Encapsulix SAS, he also stated "Our Infinity ALD product line addresses the barrier film requirements for the OLED lighting and display, organic and printed flexible electronics, data storage markets and further has applications in specific industrial markets".
"The Infinitytm M500 was selected as best in class in the areas of film performance as a barrier coating, throughput and overall cost of ownership in a demanding application" stated Emmanuel Lakios EVP Encapsulix SAS and continued "This is a validation of the innovation of our technology that sets it apart from the competition."
Encapsulix was founded to address the geometric scaling of critical deposition requirements for industrial & microelectronic devices and foils. Initial process focus is in Al2O3 and TiO2 specifically for barrier coatings. The company has its development and headquarters in Simiane- Collongue France, equipment development, sales and service in the USA.
