Arkema, CEA, Arjowiggins setup collaborative innovation in field of printed electronics

COLOMBES, FRANCE: Arkema, a chemicals world major, CEA, a research public body in energy and technological innovation, and Arjowiggins Creative Papers, the world leader in technical paper, have set up the first European initiative to promote collaborative innovation in the field of printed electronics.

Arkema offers a range of materials specifically for printed electronics, in particular through its subsidiary, Piezotech. This unique range of electroactive inks provides solutions to the various requirements of the actuators and sensors industry. Meanwhile, Arjowiggins Creative Papers has developed a unique paper substrate technology for organic electronics. And finally, CEA provides support with its design tools as well as its PICTIC1 technological research and prototyping platform to validate and develop large area printing technologies in low-cost and flexible electronics.

The Open Innovation for Sensors and Actuators (OIS&A) initiative is underpinned by this unique partnership that pools all three players together in substrate, materials, and integration and design technologies, with a view to offering a comprehensive ecosystem to end-users eager to demonstrate new applications and develop new products in printed electronics. Original components and systems can be designed and demonstrated quickly by making full use of the partners’ infrastructure and know-how and by sharing R&D costs.

“Arkema develops high added value high performance materials, and our collaboration with CEA in the field of printed organic electronics addresses this challenge. We are launching this initiative with CEA and Arjowiggins Creative Papers in order to initially expand the scope of applications of our piezoelectric, pyroelectric and electroactive PVDF-based polymer materials developed by our subsidiary Piezotech,” explained Ian Cayrefourq, Emerging Technologies Director, Arkema.
