Resumen:
Una universidad finlandesa ha desarrollado un soporte de papel con revestimiento multicapa para dispositivos funcionales de impresión y busca licenciatarios, como fabricantes de papel especial o electrónica impresa. El soporte puede reciclarse. Las materias primas empleadas son productos químicos a granel fáciles de conseguir para la producción y revestimiento del papel. El papel puede producirse mediante fabricación rollo a rollo y sus propiedades pueden adaptarse a la aplicación de impresión seleccionada y conseguir la función deseada. El producto ha sido probado con éxito en aplicaciones prueba de concepto, por ejemplo, en un transistor orgánico de baja tensión, un transistor electrocrómico, un sensor de oxígeno, un sensor de sulfuro de hidrógeno y un electrodo selectivo de iones.

Tittle:
A Finnish university is looking for licensing partners for their multilayer coated paper substrate for printed electronics
Summary:
A Finnish university is looking for licensees like specialty paper or printed electronics manufacturers for a multilayer coated paper substrate suitable for printed functional devices. The substrate can be recycled, and the raw materials used are widely available bulk chemicals for paper production and coating. The paper can be produced by roll-to-roll manufacturing and its properties can be readily tuned to suit the selected printing application and to achieve a desired function.
Description:
A Finnish university has developed a multilayer coated paper substrate for printed functional devices.

The invention is based on ca. 10 years of intense research activities, and the research group has collaborated tightly with industrial partners during its development. The paper substrate has been produced in pilot trials in industrial paper-making facilities and successfully tested in several proof-of-concept applications including for example a low-voltage organic transistor, an electrochromic pixel, oxygen sensor, hydrogen sulphide sensor and an ion-selective electrode.

The paper substrate comprises of a multilayer structure including a top coating, barrier layer, smoothing layer, pre-coating and basepaper. The substrate can be recycled, and the paper is therefore suited for "one-time" or "throwaway" applications. The raw materials used are widely available bulk chemicals for paper production and coating. The concept enables the use in a wide range of printing and coating methods. The surface properties of the substrate can be readily tuned or new ones added to achieve a desired function.

The versatile applicability of the developed paper substrate has been demonstrated with several proof-of-concept devices including transistors, ion-selective electrodes and chemical sensors.

The invention has granted patents in China and in nine European countries (GB, FR, DE, CH, FI, NL, SE, AT, BE).

Potential commercial application areas include for example bio- and chemical sensors, microfluidics, smart packaging, logistics management and tracking, single use electronic circuits, devices and displays.

The university is looking for licensees interested in commercial exploitation of the technology and aqcuiring the IP rights for the technology. Potential partners could be for example specialty paper manufacturers, or manufacturers of printed electronics with possibilities to outsource the production to a suitable paper production facility.

Advantages and Innovations:
The advantages of the paper substrate with regard to its manufacturing include the possibility to produce it from widely available paper production and printing chemicals by roll-to-roll manufacturing. The properties of the substrate are advantageous in comparison to the available solutions due to its versatile functionality, its excellent barrier properties against liquids and its flexibility. The substrate is also recyclable, and it can also be considered to be an alternative to plastic substrates for printed electronics
