Altana acquires stake in technology startup Saralon
Saralon was founded in Chemnitz, Germany, in 2015. The startup has continued to expand its portfolio of innovative solutions for printed electronics. “With its conductive inks and electronic components, Saralon has developed innovative and sustainable solutions that are already in use today,” says Dr. Gerd Krämer, Chief Technology Officer at Altana’s Elantas division.
“We are gaining a strong and innovative partner”
According to company information, Saralon’s functional inks can already be used to print batteries, for example. The products are also utilised in the logistics industry. Printed electronic sensors in packaging measure humidity, temperature, and pressure, among other things. This enables efficient and sustainable monitoring of cold chains, for instance. “With Altana, we are gaining a strong and innovative partner for our business model who will help us fully tap the growth potential of our products,” says Dr. Moazzam Ali, CEO and cofounder of Saralon.
