Conductive inks retain conductivity after molding of printing substrate
August 10, 2012 // Julien Happich
A manufacturer of specialty materials for printed electronics and electronic assembly industries, Conductive Compounds has developed a series of specialty conductive inks designed for plastic molding applications.
These conductive inks can be printed onto flat plastic substrate films using conventional screen, gravure or pad printing techniques. After drying the inks, the plastic film can then be formed into shape using heat and pressure, and the printed conductive ink traces will follow the contour of the molded part. Even with sharp bends and deep draw sections in the molded part, the conductive ink traces are said to maintain conductivity. These new conductive inks will allow design engineers to incorporate electronic circuit traces easily into molded parts, such as automotive interior components, without the additional manufacturing step of attaching a circuit to a molded part.
