SAMSUNG Corning, Developed Multi-layer Coating Film First of Advanced Digital Set-Top-Boxes Based on Microsoft TV Platform

in Korea and launched commercialization The Samsung Corning Co., Ltd. (C.E.O. & President: Park Young Koo) has developed multi-layer coating films including high-penetration ITO for touch panel which are used as next-generation core material for information communication and display industries and launched the related business in earnest. The Samsung Corning will invest 15-odd billion won in land with an area of 1,000-odd pyung to construct the production facilities with a yearly capacity of 1.2 million SQ.M's this year and film coating business. This plant will start its operation from 2001 in earnest. As the information communication and display industries are expanding rapidly, demand for light, compact and durable display and solution of harmful electromagnetic waves and glare of the traditional displays has been increased. The multi-layer film coating business has been launched in step with such a trend. With a high growth rate of more than 25% a year in expectation until 2005, this multi-layer film coating industry is an essential one for a variety of fields such as construction, automobile, and circuit for semiconductor. In addition, as the related products are being imported from U.S.A. and Japan in the whole quantity, demand for localization is very high. To meet such market demand and needs of customers, the Samsung Corning has involved herself in this business in earnest. Thanks to her success in the localization of core material in this field, the Samsung Corning is expecting import substitute effect worth 150 billion won for the period from 2001 to 2005. The Samsung Corning has prepared for the film coating business for 3 years from 1997 and succeeded in the development of the related products with its own in-house researchers by investing 1 billion won. The Samsung Corning owes its success in the development of the film coating with its own technology to the manufacturing technological power and know-how of ITO glass coating over 10 years and the technology accumulated from the existing optic multi-layer glass coating division. These technological power was applied to the very design stage to maximize manufacturing efficiency. Also, as it is possible to utilize the established business network and clients in the field of ITO glass coating for LCD with 40% of world market share, there will be no difficulty in the marketing of this newly developed item and thus a great synergistic effect is expected.

Various layers with thickness of hundreds of Angstrom are coated on plastic film by means of vacuum sputtering process. This is a product having electrical, optical function adapted to the appropriate use. ※ High-penetration ITO: This product is mainly used for TOUCH PANEL and has highly improved penetration rate(more than 93%) owing to its multi-layer, compared to the existing products(86%). As touch panel is attached as input device for the display, it has a shortcoming, i.e., decrease in brightness. If the high-penetration ITO film is applied, however, such a problem can be resolved. more information mail to : w3corning@samsungcorning.co.kr
