Sumitomo Chemical will triple capacity at its South Korean subsidiary Dongwoo Fine-Chem to make film-based touch-screen panels for displays based on organic light-emitting diodes. The films are particularly suited for use on curved and flexible displays, Sumitomo says.

OLED displays are present on Samsung smartphones and may be adopted by Apple for its next generation of iPhones.
