RENFREWSHIRE, SCOTLAND - Plastic electronics are particularly susceptible to contamination. Particles as small as 100nm (nanometres) can adversely affect the performance and life span of devices such as OLEDs (Organic Light-Emitting Diodes) and OPV (Organic Photovoltaic) Cells by degrading their barrier properties.
Common problems produced by particles include the presence of small pinholes in the coating of the substrate(“starry night effect”) that cause water molecules to permeate through the coating and base film.
Teknek, the global leader in contact cleaning and yield improvement, has developed specialized cleaning equipment which can remove these particles using its unique Nanocleen elastomer rollers. Teknek is the only contact cleaning system validated for use in a high vacuum environment.
Manufacturers deploying the Teknek system can expect to see a dramatic reduction in defects and substantially higher yields.
