Providing the difference in every single pixel

We don’t believe in limits when it comes to creating the perfect pixel. This is evidenced by our long-standing expertise in customer-specific liquid crystal materials, our passion for continuous innovation and our commitment to working for – and with – our customers on reliable display materials and new technologies. We bring the perfect pixel to “life” through numerous activities and our high-performance display materials.

Our focus:

•State-of-the-art display materials for advanced LCD technologies like UB-FFS (Ultra-Brightness Fringe Field Switching) and FFS (Fringe Field Switching), PS-VA (Polymer Stabilized Vertical Alignment), Vertical Alignment (VA), and In-Plane Switching (IPS).)
•Materials for energy-saving lighting using LEDs (light-emitting diodes) and OLEDs (organic LEDs)
•Reactive mesogen formulations to improve image quality and for use in 3D screens
•Photoresist materials to develop higher resolution displays

Key products:

licristal®: State-of-the-art liquid crystal mixtures for cutting-edge technologies
licrivue®: Ready-to-use formulations with reactive mesogens for optical films used for 3D technology and OLED displays
isiphor®: Superior phosphors for LED lighting for LCD backlighting and lighting applications
livilux®: OLED materials for vacuum deposition and for printing processes
