Presentation Summary

Flexible displays gaining popularity, Canatu offers the solution and design freedom to display manufacturers to create just that: real flexible products. Canatu's CNB super-thin films and touch sensors currently outperform all competitors in terms of flexibility. Our durability tests show how our films can withstand more than 150 000 bends at a bending radius of as little as 1mm, with little (1%) to no change in conductivity. Further, with Canatu's One-Plastic-Solution (OPS) one can integrate the touch into the display window or moisture barrier film, reducing the number of components, laminations, and thickness. 1-layer touch can be achieved at a minimal 23 µm thickness and 2-layer touch at less than 60 µm thickness, making Canatu's offering exceptionally well-suited for wearables and other end-products demanding extreme flexibility and thinness.
