Dye-Sublimation Thermal Transfer Printing Media

Dye-sublimation thermal transfer is a technology that takes yellow, magenta and cyan dyes uniformly coated, at a thickness of several microns, on an extremely thin base film, and uses a thermal head to transfer them to a dedicated receiving paper to form images. By controlling the dye volume transferred by the heat of the thermal head, it is possible to configure smooth high-definition images. In line with the spread of digital photos, and an expanded market for dry print methodology that does not use developing solution, there has been a rapid rise in demand for photo prints, photo stickers, ID cards and medical photos. In addition to ink ribbons and dedicated receiving paper, DNP strengths include print systems and software, and the Company operates a total product and service menu, related to photo prints. Looking ahead, DNP will boost convenience to, and the satisfaction of, our users by developing new print systems and services that match the needs of our customers in various countries and regions.

Anti-Reflection Films for Liquid Cristal Displays

Anti-Reflection film is attached to the surface of television and computer displays, to prevent the intrusion of external and room light. DNP manufactures both Anti-Glare (AG) and Low-Reflection (LR) film types, and maintains a system allowing for the stable supply of high quality products to our customers. By capitalizing upon the materials design and optic design technology developed and accumulated by DNP to date, and applying a thin, uniform coating of materials that disperse light to a rolled film substrate, DNP can reply to the high level demands of our customers.

Battery Pouches for Lithium-Ion Battery

Apart from being utilized in mobile equipment, lithium ion batteries have seen their use expanded to electric vehicles, and also residential applications. The battery pouch used as an external casing material seals the battery components, such as the electrodes, electrolytes and separators. Compared with existing metal cans, DNP developed battery pouches for lithium-ion battery that maintain high-level flexibility in terms of dimensions and shaping, and can also accommodate weight savings. Battery pouches for lithium-ion battery capitalize on multiple DNP technologies, such as coating technology and materials design technology that helps realize advanced moisture barrier performance and moldability. When these technologies are combined and synergized along with laminating technology, it becomes possible to create multiple functions that battery pouches exhibit as a single composite material unit. Battery pouches for lithium-ion battery that apply these functions maintain high level durability, and are highly evaluated by numerous companies that are promoting lighter and lower profile products.
