Thin-Film Formation and Processing Technologies
Highly functional films are manufactured by forming a thin film, applying a functional material on the film surface, and then implementing surface modification. Technologies applied in each step collectively comprise the foundation of the manufacturing technique that Fujifilm has cultivated and utilized for various functional films, including display optical, recording and graphic materials.
Core technologies derived from these fundamental technologies
Precision coating and thin-film formation technologies
Precision coating technology is used to apply a homogeneous multilayer-coating of highly functional materials on films at a micrometer scale. Thin-film formation technology assists in forming films by flow casting while controlling various features such as optical properties. Fujifilm manufactures various functional films of high quality and exceptional stability using these technologies.
Material surface functionalization technology
This technology controls surface functions, such as hydrophilic / hydrophobic properties, electrostatic properties, electrical conductivity, and adhesiveness. It has been applied to a wide range of material development areas centered on functional films.
Surface morphology control technology
This technology controls the gloss and flatness of material surfaces. It achieves various characteristics by controlling surface morphology.
Particle dispersion technology
This technology stably disperses nano-particulates in liquids. It helps with the stable dispersion of functional materials and supports the higher function and quality of many products, such as dyes, inks and cosmetics.
