IPI is working with our Open Innovation partner in UK whose client is a leading developer of functional nano-coatings and application equipment for the protection of electronic devices, supplying to manufacturers (ODM and OEM) to apply during manufacturing and assembly processes. They serve manufacturers who require increasing functionality for electronic devices, and smart coatings which allow the end product to retain all the aesthetic and performance properties it was designed with, despite demanding use by consumers and any environmental influences.
The client wishes to augment their existing platform to deliver additional functional coatings to assist manufacturers of electronic devices, in particular mobile phones. The client has identified the properties most synergistic with its capabilities and those actively pursued by their clients and end customers. They wish to collaborate with appropriate technology partners that can achieve waterproof, anti-scratch or durable anti-fingerprint properties via coatings, surface treatment (for glass, aluminium, etc.) or system innovation which can be incorporated into their existing coating platform.
Properties of interest
Enabling technologies to achieve above properties
Solutions able to utilise pulsed plasma deposition / PVD / CVD are of high interest, as are those that can provide additional properties (e.g. Electro Static Discharge protection). The client is open to discuss all forms of collaboration, including licensing and acquisition. Potential solutions should have completed proof of concept and ideally be tested for an electronic device application.
