A rechargeable battery printed with TAeTTOOz® polymer-based materials

With the joint technology demonstrator, the two companies show what is possible when their technology platforms are combined. The demonstrator integrates the ink formulations for printable batteries from Evonik and Ynvisible’s proprietary electrochromic displays into a combined system that consumes only minimal electricity, is ultra low-weight, and is highly flexible, transparent, and robust. The technology demonstrator shows possibilities for efficient industrial design: components required by both the battery and the electrochromic display are manufactured in a single step and are shared. The aim is system level performance and cost efficiencies while eliminating design and production restrictions of conventional electronics.

“Printable electronics are taking on a key role, as everyday items become increasingly interconnected through the Internet of Things. We develop our fully printable polymer energy storage technology for seamless integration into energy autonomous IoT devices,” says Dr. Michael Korell of Creavis, the strategic research unit of Evonik, where he is responsible for the development of TAeTTOOz®. “We see an exciting fit between TAeTTOOz® and Ynvisible’s printed electrochromics and their range of design and production services. Furthermore, we find ourselves focused on largely the same end markets and fields of application.”

“We’re very happy to have launched this joint development with Evonik. Our two technology platforms complement each other perfectly and our approaches to design, production, and market entry are near identical,” says Jani-Mikael Kuusisto, the CEO of Ynvisible. “TAeTTOOz® looks particularly promising from our perspective as it solves the powering needs in reusable printed systems. It’s a truly unique rechargeable battery technology as it is produced entirely within a screen-printing process, which is also the base of electrochromic display printing. We look forward to working with Evonik to bring TAeTTOOz® into high volume production in combination with our electrochromic inks and display technology.” As a part of the collaboration going forward, Evonik and Ynvisible intend to jointly promote each other’s products and technologies. Dr. Korell continues, “Ynvisible is the undisputed trailblazer when it comes to developing electrochromic displays. That’s why we’re happy to support the company and help this technology achieve a breakthrough on the mass market.”

The deal expands Ynvisible's client list, strengthens the Company's sales and marketing team and brings new assets to its digital marketing and product creation.


"rdot has a proven track record for excellent marketing of electrochromic displays and is generating sales. It's strong in digital channels. The COVID pandemic rapidly changed how companies conduct business, and rdot's born-digital approach to business is proving to be effective in these times," said Tommy Höglund, VP Sales & Marketing. "With this acquisition, we're delighted to strengthen our sales and marketing team with this rich set of capabilities and further tools for prototyping."

rdot has been seeking a route to industrial scale manufacturing of electrochromic displays. Through the deal, the rdot client base gains access to Ynvisible's industrial scale production, quality control and technology transfer capabilities. Mr. Höglund continued, "rdot's electrochromics display prototyping business is on a strong growth path but has lacked resources to develop client opportunities to high volume industrial production. Ynvisible is equipped to serve clients' production needs and transfer this capability to other manufacturing sites where end clients may need them more locally."


"I am confident that all of our existing clients will have positive feelings about this deal. The fact that a larger organization with additional resources and capabilities is behind the electrochromic display technology will ultimately benefit the clients," said Felix Karlsson, CEO of rdot AB, who will be joining the Ynvisible team. "It feels great to join Ynvisible, both personally and from a commercial perspective. At the end of the day, what drives all of us is to widely spread the adoption of printed electrochromic displays. Joining Ynvisible is a step in that direction."


The Business Transfer


Agreement between Ynvisible's wholly owned subsidiary Ynvisible Production AB and rdot AB includes a transfer of rdot's property and assets. The purchase price is 1.2 million Swedish Kronas (approx. $171,000 CAD), plus time limited performance based remuneration. rdot's two employees join Ynvisible as new employees.
