LOPEC 2020: Folex presents coated film substrates for wearables and heating applications
At LOPEC 2020, Folex Coating GmbH is showing coated films for the production of printed electronics on an industrial scale (Booth 515). These materials include transparent, conductive coated substrates for e.g. heating applications or sensors. Various systems are also shown for the transfer or application of printed electronics for wearable applications on textiles. The thin, flexible layers can be printed using standard screen or digital printing processes. They are applied to the fabric by transferring the layer from the corresponding carrier material.
Prototypes that were created in collaboration with other companies will be presented again this year. Folex, an OE-A member, offers a wide range of media that can be printed with optimal performance. The company offers visitors the opportunity to discuss specific needs and provides suitable substrates in the format of choice.
The Folex Group specialises in the finishing and coating of films and specialities and has production companies based in Switzerland (Schwyz) and Germany (Cologne and Erlangen) that offer high-quality products and tailor made services for a wide variety of markets. Today Folex offers solutions for many sectors, from the printing industry or digital and large format printing, the office and home sector, all the way to primary products for the electronics industry.
