Ynvisible Interactive Inc., a Vancouver-based provider of printed low-power e-paper display products, has closed a new commercial agreement with Norwegian material technology company CondAlign AS. Through this collaboration, Ynvisible will use CondAlign’s proprietary E-Align anisotropic, conductive film to connect its displays to a wide range of electronic devices, unlocking new markets and applications.

Key highlights:

  • Flexible and Thin Solutions: Traditional connectors used to connect electronic components, are often too rigid and bulky for small, flexible, thin products like labels and cards;
  • Enhanced Integration: CondAlign develops and commercializes a proprietary film that works as a flexible tape and can be used to seamlessly connect e-paper displays with other electronic components in mass production processes;
  • Expanding Market Potential: This partnership enables Ynvisible to address the high-growth markets of smart cards and smart labels, opening up significant business opportunities.

Ynvisible’s printed e-paper displays need to be connected to other electronic components and systems to create new products. Traditional component connectors are bulky and rigid, therefore not allowing Ynvisible’s thin and flexible displays to be integrated into products such as smart cards or labels. To solve this challenge, Ynvisible was on the lookout for an alternative.

“The partnership with Ynvisible demonstrates the importance of having our E-Align film as an enabling component in the development and manufacturing of cost efficient and environmentally friendly flexible electronic products,” said Harald Wahl Breivik, CEO CondAlign.


By overcoming the limitations of traditional connectors, Ynvisible can develop highly flexible and thin e-paper-based solutions tailored for emerging markets, such as smart cards and labels. Using E-Align as a bonding solution will allow Ynvisible to accelerate several development initiatives. This strategic move not only broadens Ynvisible’s market reach but also reinforces its position as a leader in sustainable, low-power display solutions.

CondAlign is a Norwegian technology company specializing in the development and manufacturing of electric and thermal anisotropic conductive materials. The E-Align film from CondAlign, a flexible and sustainable connecting solution, enhances electronic component integration. Since it works as a double-sided tape that can be taped to an e-paper display on one side and the control electronics on the other, it creates both a mechanical and electrical connection. In addition, as Ynvisible, CondAlign also uses roll-to-roll manufacturing techniques for mass production. This alignment with Ynvisible’s production methods ensures a faster, more cost-effective, and environmentally friendly manufacturing and assembly process.

“Extending our collaboration with CondAlign to include new sustainable solutions and expanded business opportunities is a significant step forward for both companies,” said Milton Fernandes, Enterprise Project Manager, Ynvisible Interactive.

Ynvisible is already integrating the E-Align film into a new digital signage module, aiming to make E-Align the standard bonding method across its product range. This innovation will not only speed up production but also reduce costs, making the final products thinner, more flexible, and more sustainable.
