DuPont Teijin Films to introduce optically clear Ultra Violet (UV) stable polyester films

DuPont Teijin Films

DuPont Teijin Films (DTF) is reportedly gearing up to introduce super clear Ultra Violet (UV) stable polyester films at Printed Electronics USA 2016- November 16-17.

These UV polyester films are specifically designed to block UV transmission, and they are the most recent additions to the MELINEX TCH family of low haze and low oligomer bloom films that are designed for the flexible electronics, photovoltaic, displays, lighting and label markets.

 According to Solar Novus Utilizing proprietary UV stabilizer technology from DuPont Teijin Films, the clear MELINEX TCHUV films move the transmittance cut-off to about 375nm while enabling the PET film to retain mechanical and optical properties after accelerated UV aging.

The new polyester films range in thickness from 50µm – 125µm, they maintain ~1 percent haze by minimizing the typical oligomer blooming effect that can be caused by exposure to elevated temperatures, and they are available with near-zero thermal shrinkage when processed through DTF’s world-class heat stabilization process.

DuPont Teijin Films is a 50:50 global joint venture between DuPont and Teijin. It is one of the leading differentiated producers of PET and PEN polyester films.
