Outcomes and Application 

High-tech achievements

As the first high-tech enterprise co-founded by Hebei province and Tsinghua University, Slichem has more than 30 years of advanced technology and experience in the field of liquid crystal materials of Tsinghua University, and has undertaken many major research projects such as the National 863 Program and the Torch Program and received the "National Key New Product Award", "National Outstanding Invention Award" and "Hebei Provincial Science and Technology Progress Award" and other awards. It is an enterprise that hangs the nameplate of the Flat Panel Display Engineering Technology Research Center of Hebei Province and one of the top 50 enterprises of Shijiazhuang industry.

Independent Intellectual Property Right Achievements

Now, the intellectual property right (IPR) has transferred from "the purpose of protection" to a "core competitiveness" , and it has become a strategic resource for technology enterprises. Patent is the carrier of the liquid crystal R&D achievements of Slichem, and the reasonable patent layout has played a protective role in the promotion of liquid crystal products at home and abroad.   

The patent quantity needs to be accumulated to an extent, the quality matters more for patent. For that reason, Slichem has established an exclusive IPR management system, including the literature retrieval and patent status analysis prior to R&D, and the patent risk assessment of the final liquid crystal products.  

Through years of R&D accumulation, Slichem has owned more than 300 patents, which are wholly developed by the company itself, forming a liquid crystal system featuring naphthenic base. Since the patents for cyclopentyl-positive CF2O, negative 2,3-difluorobenzene liquid crystal monomers and compositions have been authorized in China, US and Japan, etc. in succession, and the patents for cyclopropyl-terphenyl, CF2O, 2,3-difluorobenzene liquid crystal have been authorized in China, US and German, etc. in succession, the core patents of our company based on the aforesaid patents have been gradually formed, which won the National Outstanding Patent Award in 2017. This will surely lay a good foundation of IPR for the promotion of crystal liquid products at home and abroad as well as the formation of core competitiveness for our company.
