THE WOODLANDS, TX--(Marketwired - Jan 6, 2014) - UniPixel, Inc. (NASDAQ: UNXL), a provider of Performance Engineered Films™ to the touch screen, flexible printed electronics, lighting and display markets, has rebranded its UniBoss™ flexible printed electronics manufacturing process as Copperhead™. The proprietary roll-to-roll manufacturing process can print patterns of microscopic conductive elements on thin film, with very narrow line widths. The technology has wide-ranging applications, from touch panel and gesture sensors to antenna, EMI shielding and custom circuitry applications.
The Copperhead process produces the company's line of InTouch Sensors™, a new pro-cap, multi-touch sensor that offers the unique advantages of metal mesh technology. These advantages include higher touch sensitivity, improved touch distinction, better durability, significantly higher conductivity, extensibility to a greater number of sizes and form factors, and faster sensing speeds as compared to standard ITO-based touch technology.
The Copperhead process for InTouch Sensors is also an additive, roll-to-roll, flexible electronics process as compared to traditional subtractive ITO manufacturing. As an additive manufacturing process, Copperhead is inherently more efficient and sustainable. It promises lower production costs, given its lower material costs, fewer steps in the manufacturing process, and a more simplified supply chain.
Along with the rebranding, UniPixel has launched a new corporate website that features Copperhead and InTouch Sensors, as well as Diamond Guard™, its hard-coat resin technology. The site now features expanded content and an updated design to enhance the user experience on both PC and mobile devices. Its new intuitive interface and simple search functionality enables visitors to quickly find a wealth of information about the company's proprietary technologies, history and industry partners.
The new website provides existing and prospective customers detailed information and supporting materials on the advantages offered by UniPixel's performance engineered film technology, as well as explore its many potential applications.
"Renaming our flexible printed electronics manufacturing process as Copperhead reflects its unique ability to print micron-sized copper lines on PET film," said Robert Berg, UniPixel's senior vice president of sales and marketing. "Our new website now better showcases our company as a leader in disruptive performance engineered films which have applications across a wide range of industries. These marketing efforts reflect our progress toward commercialization of our unique technologies, which is endorsed and supported by our major industry partners."
