Company: Alink Co., Ltd. Position: CEO
Aluminum Coated Flexible Film and Textiles for Electronics and Environmental Industries
Alink is a start-up company established by the research team developed aluminum ink and its coating processes on glass, plastic, and fabrics at Korea Institute of Materials Science. We have successfully developed an aluminum ink production system and a roll to roll coating system using the aluminum ink. In addition to this, the aluminum coated textiles are being applied to several kinds of electronics and environmental industries. Especially, the aluminum coated conductive textiles are being used in stylus pen for LG smart phone, and we are also trying to apply the aluminum coated conductive unwoven filters to air cleaning system for perfective removal of fine particulate pollutants. In this presentation, thus, I will introduce the aforementioned technologies from aluminum ink production and coating processes to application of conductive textiles to several kinds of industries.
