Bigbang Angels announced that it has
invested in Finenano, the developer of conductive smart ink for PV.
Finenano was also selected to participate
in the TIPS program with the investment.
The global display market is accelerating
the development of flexible displays that fold, bend, and flex. As a result,
the demand for electronic components and materials are increasing as well, and
currently, ITO is accounting for 90%. However, in case of ITO, supply and
demand of indium is unstable, and high price, breakage when bent, complicated
process, and high temperature sintering method limit the application in FED.
CEO Park Won-cheol pointed this out and said, "We are planning to develop and
commercialize metal nano conductive ink that can replace ITO."
Finenano's conductive smart ink ensured
high electrical conductivity by using low temperature sintering, overcoming the
limited application due to high temperature sintering. Also, by adopting the
Roll-to-Roll process, it makes the printing suitable and mass production easy,
and reduces the manufacturing cost of conductive ink by using a metal organic
precursor rather than the existing metal nanoparticle ink.
Hwang Byeong-seon, CEO of Bigbang Angels,
said, "Finenano is expanding the market to various countries including China
and Singapore. And, but using our diverse network, we will help the companies
An official of Finenano said, "We will work
with display module companies and printed circuit board companies to
demonstrate core technologies by development materials and applications with
