Research Topic

Electronic Materials

Kodak's invention of novel conducting, semi-conducting and dielectric materials expands the application space of functional printing. These materials allow us to mature beyond simple printed electronic solutions for the display industry and enable unique applications in smart packaging and sensor technology. Our proprietary materials are also designed to transform and simplify the processing required to build and scale functional applications.

Research Topic

Inks and Dispersions

Kodak is building off of its strong reputation for formulating robust inks that are applied in all commercial printing applications. Proprietary technologies in materials design, engineered particles, and formulation are extended with additional invention to open solutions in functional printing ranging from conductive grid technology to chemical sensors and beyond.

Research Topic

Polymer Science

Polymer chemistry is central to the function of our sustainable, processless lithoplate product family. Polymer system design extends dispersion stability and print durability for KODAK PROSPER (continuous inkjet) Inks. Kodak's continued inventions in polymer science are enabling resolution control of our KODAK FLEXCEL Flexographic Plates and are the foundation for novel printable dielectrics.
