Toray Ind. Inc. has decided to build additional production facility for photosensitive paste for plasma display panels (PDPs). The company will construct a new building and production facility for the paste in the vicinity of its Shiga plant in order to meet the demand expected to be generated by a new PDP plant being built by Matsushita PDP Co. Ltd (MPDP), a joint venture with Matsushita Electric Ind. Co. Ltd.

The facility is expected to have a production capacity of 100 tons per month, boosting the total annual capacity to 2,160 tons (180 tons per month) from the current 960 tons (80 tons per month). MPDP aims to bring forward the start of operation of the new PDP plant to September from the previously planned November and Toray will start supplying the photosensitive paste beginning September.

The photosensitive paste method is currently licensed to MPDP. In this process, several types of pasting materials, such as photosensitive barrier paste, are pasted on glass substrates to form minute patterns. These pasting materials were designed and developed by Toray exclusively for this process. There are four kinds of pasting materials-- electrode application, dielectric application, barrier application and phosphor application (red, green and blue in color) -- and they are produced at a special facility within the company's Shiga Plant (Otsu, Shiga prefecture) and supplied to MPDP.
