Ultra Nano Film Production

High-precision techniques enabled the development of Ultra nano particles

Konica Minolta applied its advanced expertise in chemical synthesis, gained over decades of experience in photocopy toner and inkjet technology, to develop a new material that blocks over 95% of infrared light.

Film composed of a high-performance material used in cutting-edge areas

The same type of material as our Ultra Nano particles is used in cutting-edge areas like space development. By using a material that works well even in extreme conditions, we were able to develop a product far superior in performance to conventional film.

Multi-Nano Layer Film Production

Unrivaled High-Precision Coating Technology

Konica Minolta excels at the simultaneous formation of multiple coated films with precision on the nano order, having developed expertise in that technology through the manufacture of silver halide films. Konica Minolta used that technology to make ICE-μ, thereby achieving a previously unattainable level of performance in window films. ICE-μ also incorporates other technologies developed at Konica Minolta, such as roll-to-roll mass production and a design that prevents materials from different layers from mixing.

Roll-to-roll coating

The roll-to-roll method-coating multiple rolls simultaneously instead of one at a time-enables faster and more stable production. This technology is key to ICE-μ’s superior cost performance.

Material Design

When the functional materials are layered, there is a danger of different layers mixing together, which would lead to a drop in performance. To manufacture ICE-μ, we have produced coating material with the appropriate physical properties to prevent neighboring layers from mixing.
