Polyester Film Substrates For The Next Generation Of Flexible & Formable Electronics
Santa Clara Convention Center, CA, USA
Grand Ballroom F
09:20 - 09:40
For over 30 years, PET polyester films have remained the substrate of choice for most Flexible / Printed Electronics applications, primarily because PET offers a unique blend of commercial availability, performance, and cost. Recent device innovations require material suppliers to deliver improved functionality. This presentation will provide updates on several PET polyester film substrate developments.
