Henkel joins Holst Centre research network for flexible electronics

DUSSELDORF, GERMANY: Henkel and Holst Centre announced a partnership in the field of flexible electronics. Henkel’s knowhow in adhesives brings a new field of expertise to the Holst Centre’s shared research programmes. It aligns with a large number of Holst Centre activities, such as the research towards large-area flexible OPV and OLED lighting and signage. 

Adhesives with functional properties like electrical conductivity or moisture barrier protection have great potential in future electronics applications. Henkel plans to bring many of its technologies to these applications, drawing on expertise in electronics adhesives, pressure sensitive adhesives and more.

Within its programme on “Integration technologies for flexible systems” Holst Centre built a track record of generic technologies that can decrease the design complexity of flexible electronic devices and therefore the future cost of fabrication. Henkel adds a new field of expertise to the existing eco-system of industrial partners in the shared research program. Adhesives can potentially impact a large number of the investigated processes.

The partnership allows Henkel to further evaluate and develop its optically clear, electrically conductive and moisture barrier technologies, amongst others, on actual devices and not just on isolated material samples. This makes it more efficient to assess the market readiness of new developments.
