making innovation happen, together

Information and entertainment displays (Computers, TV and then personal electronics) have been very important industries over the last 70 years, dramatically changing people’s lives and continuously evolving through harnessing new technologies and setting the highest standards.


From its inception, the SAES Group has been developing advanced technological innovation, products and services for the information display marketplace. For more than 70 years, ever since the introduction of consumer CCTVs, SAES Getters has been fostering the most important and cutting-edge phases of the evolution of the entire information display industry.

The future of flat panel TVs is expected to benefit from new developments of displays based on Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED): slim and thin structure, crisp colors, fast response times and low energy consumption will enable new functionalities of TVs in close connection with multimedia and internet applications. SAES is able to extend the lifetime of new OLED TVs by the development of dispensable dryers (DryPaste® product family), that can be used in different production processes with various final characteristics, such as the optical transparency in the visible range (AqvaDry® product family). In specific configurations of  OLED stacks, SAES is also producing special dopants such as sophisticated dispensers of alkaline metals to enhance  OLED electrical performance.


SAES is also supporting new generations of flat panels, such as e-paper and electrophoretic displays for tablets or mobile applications, by providing advanced dispensable edge sealants together with dispensable dryers.

Today the mainstream of flat TVs is based on liquid crystals technology: SAES has been developing miniature mercury dispensers for cold cathodes fluorescent lamps (CCFL) for the backlight illumination of LCD TVs and information displays.


LCD manufacturing lines are also benefiting from the consistency of ultra high pure gasses thanks to SAES Group’s gas purifiers. In particular cases, also some the Plasma Displays TVs are benefiting from SAES’ Group non-evaporable getters in form of thick films on metallic substrates.

Evaporable getters based on releasing an active barium film have historically been used to maintain the vacuum within Color Cathode Ray Tube (CCRT) televisions. Today these getters remain the best choice for a display technology that, despite disappearance from markets in the industrialized world, still offer the cheapest and easiest to maintain display technology for emerging markets.
