Rochester, NY, August 12, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Molaire Consulting LLC has established Molecular Glasses Inc. as a newly formed Delaware Corporation with all related intellectual property being transferred into the new entity. Molecular Glasses is a technology company initially focused on the development and commercialization of novel Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) materials for use in a variety of applications including small and large displays and commercial and automotive lighting. Molecular Glasses executive appointments include Mike Molaire as CEO and President, Mark Juba as Chief Operating Officer, and Dr. David S. Weiss as Advanced Research Director. Concurrently, Molecular Glasses, Inc. has leased laboratory space in the Eastman Business Park.
“We are assembling a top-notch management and technical team to quickly commercialize our novel technology,” said Mike Molaire, CEO and founder of Molecular Glasses, Inc. “We view ourselves as the bridge to the OLED future as our novel materials are compatible across both existing and evolving market verticals and manufacturing processes.”
Molecular Glasses has invented a new class of materials called NONcrystallizable™ that can be used in the existing Vacuum Thermal Deposition manufacturing process and also have the high solubility and stability required for the emerging Solution/Printing production processes. This eliminates the need to change materials when converting from the existing to emerging solution based manufacturing processes. Our NONcrystallizable™ OLED materials also have high thermal stability and exceptional light extraction capabilities enabling longer life and higher efficiencies in end use devices such as cell phones and flat panel displays.
About Molecular Glasses, Inc.
Molecular Glasses Inc. focuses on proprietary NONcrystallizable™ molecular glasses for stable and long-lived OLED and other organic electronics. We are developing NONcrystallizable™ hole-transporting, electron-transporting, ambipolar, fluorescent, phosphorescent, water-soluble, crosslinkable, and solvent- or vacuum-coatable molecular glass mixtures.
Our mission is to provide NONcrystallizable™ molecular glasses to OLED and organic electronics manufacturers for their use in commercializing stable and long-lived displays, lighting products, organic solar cells and thin film transistors. Our primary business strategy is technology licensing and organic semiconductor materials sales. For more information, visit us at www.molecularglasses.com
