UniPixel Expands Design and Sampling Program for UniBoss Transparent Conductive Film Products

Multiple Major Electronics Firms Are Evaluating the UniBoss Printable Flexible Electronic, Roll-to-Roll Manufactured Film as an Alternative to ITO-Based Touch Sensors

THE WOODLANDS, TX--(Marketwire - Oct 27, 2011) - UniPixel, Inc. (NASDAQ: UNXL), a provider of Clearly Superior™ Performance Engineered Films to the touch screen, flexible electronics, lighting and display markets, has introduced an expanded design and sampling program for OEM, display and touch panel manufacturers interested in evaluating its UniBoss™ transparent conductive film technology and products.

UniPixel introduced UniBoss™ at the SID conference in late May of 2010. The company has since further developed the technology and is now offering a higher performance, lower cost alternative to ITO transparent conductors. Several leading electronic manufacturers have been evaluating the UniBoss films over the last couple of months. The positive results from early evaluations are leading UniPixel to expand its design and sampling program.

Reed Killion, UniPixel's president and CEO, commented: "The UniBoss sampling program allows interested parties to submit their touch-sensor design and work with the UniPixel Engineering Team to experience and see firsthand the advantages the UniBoss touch sensor offers over the ITO standard and other ITO replacement alternatives. UniBoss' traces of conductive copper provide increased performance characteristics over ITO and ITO alternative films in terms of light transmission, flexibility, reliability, durability and environmental stability, while offering conductivity levels of .012ohm/sq. compared to 100-400ohm/sq. of ITO and competing alternatives.

UniPixel has signed a non-disclosure and material transfer agreement with approximately 10 companies that have submitted requests for design and sampling of UniBoss enabled touch sensor solutions. "We have sampled four of the companies thus far," said Killion. "We are working with Japanese, Korean, Taiwan and U.S.-based OEM, Display Panel and Touch Panel module electronic manufacturers. Some of these companies are also sampling our Diamond Guard™ protective cover glass replacement solution."
