Production

Contrary to conventional ideas relying only on capacity and process optimization, our production of OLED requires the same long-term accumulated chemical process technologies, as well as chemistry-based knowledge in optimization of various parameters and their inter-correlation to ensure stable and reliable quality.

At SFC, our production missions are about

01. Keeping world-class competitiveness in quality

02. Striving to maximize productivity

03. Developing state-of-the-art process technologies

  • Synthesis
  • Purification

In a sophisticated purifying unit with controlled temperature gradient under a high vacuuming condition, OLED-grade high purity material can be obtained at a specific region (“collect zone”).  Sublimation process is based on a simple physical principle but it is known as an effective way of removing impurities that cannot easily be removed by conventional methods such as column separation or re-crystallization.  The conditions and instrumental settings may vary depending on each material property, process-ability, and productivity.
