OLED – a bright future
Labels and packaging with printed OLEDs are ingredients the packaging of tomorrow needs to be endowed with. The printed, flexible and organic light-emitting diodes allow for an extraordinary brand staging at the POS and are thus the next technical revolution in smart packaging. Only a few nanometres thick, self-radiating and plane: printed OLEDs consist of organic semiconductors. They can be used even on extremely concave surfaces and can be manufactured at low cost. The energy self-sufficient OLEDS will radiate several weeks, for instance with integrated printed batteries or photovoltaic elements.
