DuPont Teijin Films (DTF) is developing a new ‘Clean-on-Demand’ PET polyester film that according to the company could boost yields and cut costs for roll-to-roll (R2R) production of flexible electronics. It features a protective layer that is said to keep the active surface of the film clean and free from particulate contamination until it is used, reducing defects. This development is made as part of the EU-funded, Holst Centre-coordinated Clean4Yield project.
