A generic term for liquid crystal displays (LCDs) and other flat panel displays. The Taiyo Group has been aggressively developing electrodes for touch screens, which have experienced remarkable market growth with smartphones and tablets. We have also developed silver paste for screen painting that we use in touch screens. Meanwhile, the Group is working with our customers to develop phototype materials enabling us to shape even more detailed patterns. As for the materials of the future, research is underway on conductive paste requiring no use of precious metals.
