Cima NanoTech, a smart materials company and developer of the disruptive SANTE® self-assembling nanoparticle technology for transparent conductors, today announced successful commercial production and sales of its high performance SANTE FS200 Touch Films for large format, multi-touch displays.
Designed to enable faster response, lower cost, multi-touch displays with excellent conductivity, transparency, color neutrality, clarity and flexibility, the film is perfect for large format touch screens over 21" for applications such as all-in-one monitors, interactive table-tops, gaming and signages.
SANTE FS200 Touch Films was announced last May at SID Display Week 2013. Unlike Indium Tin Oxide (ITO)-based films, SANTE Touch Films are flexible, thus increasing handleability and improving product design freedom by supporting curved, flexible and rollable touch displays.
Cima NanoTech is partnering with top opto-materials coating company in Japan, Korea and Taiwan for high volume manufacturing of SANTE FS200 Touch Films. SANTE FS200 Touch Films have achieved successful spec-in with touch panel makers in Taiwan and China, with numerous active customer engagements globally. The transparent conductive film will be integrated in industrial and consumer touch screen products and begin shipping in the second half of 2014.
Jon Brodd, Chief Executive Officer of Cima NanoTech, commented:
"The touch industry is evolving faster than ever, and today's new applications require larger sized touch screens with superior optics and faster response time. These requirements are beyond capabilities of ITO, the incumbent touch screen material today.
"We strongly believe that our products provide touch panel manufacturers with the performance, quality, and cost structure to enable them to win new large format touch screen designs and enable consumers to enjoy touch on a much larger surface."
