Pixelligent Technologies Recognized as a Frost & Sullivan Manufacturing Leadership Awards 2017 Winner

The PixClearProcess is honored for enabling manufacturing excellence

Baltimore, Maryland – Pixelligent Technologies, the leader in high-index advanced materials (PixClear®) for the display, solid state lighting and optical components markets, today announced that it has been recognized as a Manufacturing Leadership Awards winner for its outstanding achievement in engineering and production technology leadership in developing its PixClearProcess™.

Over the past five years, Pixelligent has invested more than $20 million in designing and building its advanced product development and manufacturing platform, the PixClearProcess™. The full deployment of this proprietary PixClearProcess™ has enabled Pixelligent to scale from a manufacturing capacity of grams-per-year, to a highly capital efficient line capable of mass production volumes.

“The combined success of PixClear® materials and the PixClearProcess™ has resulted in Pixelligent becoming recognized as a global leader in high-index nanodispersion technology, that is enabling our customers to deliver next generation display and lighting products. We are deeply honored to be selected for the Frost & Sullivan Manufacturing Leadership Awards this year,” remarked Craig Bandes, CEO, Pixelligent Technologies.

The Company’s breakthrough PixClearProcess™ allows its customers to more efficiently tune and magnify the desired optical, mechanical, and electrical properties of their formulations at unprecedented levels of precision. Depending on product performance requirements, incorporating PixClear® can deliver the highest possible light extraction, near perfect transmission, increased mechanical strength, and dramatic improvements in overall operating efficiencies, enabling customers to deliver new levels of performance for OLED and HD displays, LED and OLED lighting devices, and optical components.

Pixelligent has emerged from the $24 billion in nanotechnology funding provided by the US government and billions more from the private sector, as one of the only companies that has developed a truly disruptive manufacturing and material technology platform for commercializing the promise of nanotechnology. Through its PixClearProcess™, Pixelligent is ushering in a new generation of composite technology that eliminates many of the inefficiencies and trade-offs that have defined composites for the past 50 years.

Pixelligent Technologies will be recognized at the 13th Annual Manufacturing Leadership Awards Gala, which is to be held on the last day of the Manufacturing Leadership Summit, June 12-14, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa in Huntington Beach, CA.
