Business with E-Paper displays
In the E-Paper display (EPD) market there are only three manufacturers worldwide who are allowed to market E-Ink® technology. Holitech is official partner of E-Ink® since 2015 and offers a wide range of E-Paper products (HINK displays). The EPDs by Holitech have a full refresh rate of two or three seconds. Currently, Holitech EPDs are available in different dual-color and tri-color options. In the future, it should be technically feasible to display up to eight colors. Once available, full-color EPDs will lead to a further boost in this segment.
How does E-Paper work?
The two pigment electronic ink system is made up of millions of tiny microcapsules, each about the diameter of a human hair. Each microcapsule contains negatively charged white particles and positively charged black particles suspended in a clear fluid. When a positive or negative electric field is applied, corresponding particles move to the top of the microcapsule where they become visible to the viewer. This makes the surface appear white or black at that spot.
