FIG. 1 is a schematic diagram of a structure of an OLED display panel in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention. The OLED display panel 10 includes an OLED substrate 11, a cover plate 12, a supporter 13, and a hydrophobic wall 14, wherein an OLED device 110 is formed on the OLED substrate 11.

Referring to FIG. 2 which is a schematic diagram of a structure of the cover plate 12, the supporter 13 is printed on the cover plate 12 by screen printing and located on outer position of the OLED device 110. The supporter 13 encloses the OLED device 110 when the OLED substrate 11 and the cover plate 12 are bonded. The hydrophobic wall 14 is printed on the cover plate 12 by screen printing and located on outer position of the supporter 13. The hydrophobic wall 14 encloses the supporter 13. Both the supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14 are formed simultaneously by screen printing.

Referring to FIG. 1, the OLED substrate 11 is formed opposite to the cover plate 12. The supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14 are set between the OLED substrate 11 and the cover plate 12 respectively, wherein the supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14 have the same height so a hermetic space 100 is formed between the OLED substrate 11 and the cover plate 12. The hydrophobic wall 14 can effectively block the entrance of outer moisture and oxygen into the hermetic space 100 and protect the organic thin film of the OLED device 110 from contacting moisture and oxygen and influencing performance. The package effect is improved and life of the OLED device 110 is prolonged.

In addition, the hydrophobic wall 14 is set on outer position of the supporter 13 to avoid that the hydrophobic wall 14 scratches the OLED device 110.

Moreover, both the supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14 are formed by screen printing. The method is simple and the number of the apparatus needed is less so cost of this invention is lower.

Furthermore, the supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14 are formed simultaneously so the manufacturing time is saved and the efficiency is improved.

The supporter 13 is made of glue material or glass material. The material of the hydrophobic wall 14 is solution which includes two kinds of solutions below.

The first solution is organic silicon solution which is formed by the precursor having stronger hydrophobic side chains. The organic silicon solution includes long chain silane coupling agent and the solution of fluorinated alkyl triethoxysilane.

The second solution is a combination of organic solution and the solution of inorganic compound, wherein the organic solution includes solution of the precursor having alkoxides of silicon, Titanium, tin, aluminum, or zirconium.

In this embodiment, width of the hydrophobic wall 14 is preferably 100-2000 μm.

In addition, exothermic layers 15 are set on the inner positions of the supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14 respectively. The exothermic layer 15 release large heat when countering water. The material of the exothermic layer 15 can be one of the sodium and magnesium. It can be understood that the material of the exothermic layer 15 can be other material. The material of the exothermic layer 15 is chosen according to the melting point of the supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14.

The package of the OLED display panel 10 is performed in vacuum so the exothermic layers 15 do not react with oxygen and are successfully set on the predetermined positions of the supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14. After the OLED display panel 10 is utilized for a period of time or the package of the OLED display panel 10 is not an ideal state, the supporter 13 or the hydrophobic wall 14 could include cracks or bubbles and moisture enters into hermetic space 100 of the OLED display panel 10. The exothermic layers 15 meet moisture and release large heat. The supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14 reach molten state again, and the fluid material of the supporter 13 or the hydrophobic wall 14 can refill and seal the cracks and the regions where moisture can pass. Thus, the OLED display panel 10 has auto-repair function and the life thereof is increased.

Furthermore, the OLED display panel 10 further includes a moisture-proof layer 16 to protect the organic thin film of the OLED device 110 from moisture. Specifically, the moisture-proof layer 16 is sprayed on the OLED device 110 and covers the whole OLED substrate 11. The moisture-proof layer 16 can cover the OLED device 110 only as well. The moisture-proof layer 16 can be desiccant thin film. The desiccant can be chemical desiccant or physical desiccant. The OLED device 110 can further have water-proof protection.

The present invention also provides a package method of an OLED display panel, wherein the OLED display panel is the aforementioned OLED display panel 10. FIG. 3 is a flow chart of a package method of an OLED display panel in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention. Referring to FIGS. 1-3, the package method of the OLED display panel 10 in accordance with the present invention includes:

Step S1: providing the cover plate 12 and the OLED substrate 11, wherein the OLED device 110 is set on the OLED substrate 11.

In this step, after setting the OLED device 110 on the OLED substrate 11, it further includes electrifying the OLED device 110 to burn the residual particles. This specific step includes

This specific step includes putting the OLED substrate 11 in a deposition chamber of vacuum and completing the deposition of the OLED device 110. The OLED device 110 is taken out and electrified with a predetermined period. The electrifying has two stages including applying constant direct current with one minute and varying voltage to scan with one minute. Applying constant direct current includes electrifying the OLED device 110 by 7V with 30 seconds and by −15V with 30 seconds. Varying voltage to scan includes electrifying the OLED device 110 by −15V-10V in 5 continuous circles with 40 seconds, wherein the varying amount is 1V; and electrifying the OLED device 110 by 0V-7V in 10 continuous circles with 20 seconds, wherein the varying amount is 1V.

After electrifying, the short problem of the OLED device 110 caused by the residual particles can be improved effectively so the yield and the reliability of the OLED device 110 can be promoted.

Step S2: forming simultaneously the supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14 on the outer position of and enclosing the OLED device 110 by screen printing, wherein the hydrophobic wall 14 is on the outer position of the supporter 13.

Referring to FIG. 4 which is a flow chart of the step S2 in accordance with the present invention, the method includes the steps below:

S21: providing a screen printing template having two pattern openings, wherein the shapes of the two openings are corresponding to that of the supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14;

S22: setting the materials of the supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14 in the screen printing template respectively;

S23: scraping the materials of the supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14 on the screen printing template by scraper to coat the materials into the corresponding openings.

The supporter 13 is made of glue material or glass material. The material of the hydrophobic wall 14 is solution which includes two kinds of solutions below:

The first solution is organic silicon solution which is formed by the precursor having stronger hydrophobic side chains. The organic silicon solution includes long chain silane coupling agent and the solution of fluorinated alkyl triethoxysilane.

The second solution is a combination of organic solution and the solution of inorganic compound, wherein the organic solution includes solution of the precursor having alkoxides of silicon, Titanium, tin, aluminum, or zirconium.

S3: bonding the cover plate 12 and the OLED substrate 11.

After this step, the glue material of the supporter 13 is irradiated for curing by ultraviolet (UV) ray. Specifically, the place except the supporter 13 is covered by a mask and the position of the supporter 13 is not covered. The position of the supporter 13 is irradiated by UV ray to cure the supporter 13.

After curing, the cured supporter 13 and the solution of the hydrophobic wall 14 are dried to seal the space between the cover plate 12 and the OLED substrate 11 and form the hermetic space 100, wherein width of the hydrophobic wall 14 is 100-2000 μm.

Because the method of screen printing only has two steps of coating and drying, the art of the present invention setting the supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14 is simple.

Moreover, screen printing only needs the apparatus such as the screen printing template, the scraper, and the dryer so the cost is lower.

Furthermore, the present invention provides that the supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14 are formed simultaneously by screen printing so the manufacturing efficiency is improved.

In addition, in the step S2, exothermic layers 15 are set on the inner positions of the supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14 respectively. The exothermic layer 15 release large heat when countering water. The material of the exothermic layer 15 can be one of the sodium and magnesium. It can be understood that the material of the exothermic layer 15 can be other material. The material of the exothermic layer 15 is chosen according to the melting point of the supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14.

The package of the OLED display panel 10 is performed in vacuum so the exothermic layers 15 do not react with oxygen and are successfully set on the predetermined positions of the supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14. After the OLED display panel 10 is utilized for a period of time or the package of the OLED display panel 10 is not an ideal state, the supporter 13 or the hydrophobic wall 14 could include cracks or bubbles and moisture enters into hermetic space 100 of the OLED display panel 10. The exothermic layers 15 meet moisture and release large heat. The supporter 13 and the hydrophobic wall 14 reach molten state again, and the fluid material of the supporter 13 or the hydrophobic wall 14 can refill and seal the cracks and the regions where moisture can pass. Thus, the OLED display panel 10 has auto-repair function and the life thereof is increased.

Furthermore, the OLED display panel 10 further includes a moisture-proof layer 16 to protect the organic thin film of the OLED device 110 from moisture. Specifically, the moisture-proof layer 16 is sprayed on the OLED device 110 and covers the whole OLED substrate 11. The moisture-proof layer 16 can cover the OLED device 110 only as well. The moisture-proof layer 16 can be desiccant thin film. The desiccant can be chemical desiccant or physical desiccant. The OLED device 110 can further have water-proof protection. Because the moisture-proof layer 16 is formed by spray, the method is easier and faster and the package efficiency of the OLED device is improved, comparing to the conventional CVD.

It will be apparent to those having ordinary skill in the art that various modifications and variations can be made to the devices in accordance with the present disclosure without departing from the scope or spirit of the disclosure. In view of the foregoing, it is intended that the present disclosure covers modifications and variations of this disclosure provided they fall within the scope of the following claims and their equivalents.
