Samsung SDI Produces Plastic ‘Tough Panels’ for New Devices


Samsung SDI Co., Ltd. has begun producing plastic “tough panels,” which will be used for next-generation telecom devices, including PDAs, smart phones and notebooks.

Samsung SDI said its tough panels use composites of plastics rather than glass, which reduces the weight by half and helps improve durability.

Samsung’s initial production of the plastic tough panels amounted to 100,000 units in April.

Also, the company announced that it has reached an agreement to supply 50,000 panels to Palm Inc., the PDA market leader in the United States, in May.
