Samsung’s Polyimide displays to be made under a Joint Venture

Samsung has always been on the forefront when it comes to manufacturing Display screen for Mobile devices. Samsung also supplies its Displays to a vast number of clients including industry leaders like Apple.

The AMOLED, Super AMOLED and Super AMOLED Plus displays manufactured by Samsung in recent history have made it possible to have an ultimate viewing experience even on a Mobile device as small as a Smartphone.

Now, Samsung has put its foot forward to manufacture a super heat-resistant resin which is called “Polyimide”. But this high-end chemical material wont be manufactured by Samsung Mobile Displays alone. Samsung has partnered with Ube Industries Ltd. and this Polyimide material will be made as a part of this Joint Venture.

Getting into some technical details, Polyimides are capable of withstanding a temperature of 450 °F (232 °C) with ease and as high as 900 °F (482 °C) for short durations. Also, they show the property of flexibility and exceptional mechanical strength!

After knowing the properties of this material, we can have a wild guess that Samsung may be planning to manufacture Flexible and Curved displays very soon!
