Digital printing-ready conductive ink targets full-scale manufacturing

April 05, 2016 // By Julien Happich
DuPont Advanced Materials has announced a new electronic ink for inkjet printing that offers the high conductivity and strong adhesion required for rapid digital design, prototyping and full-scale manufacturing.

The technology will enable digital printing for electronic components and circuits in applications where extremely fine lines are required, such as OLED panels, solar cells, printed antennae and touch panels.

The PE410 conductive ink allows for rapid prototyping and ensures a smooth transition from “lab to fab” with the versatility to scale up to industrial high-volume inkjet print heads and machines. This allows circuit designers to immediately test a new design, quickly make necessary edits, and, due to reduced silver laydown, save on material costs. The technology is suited to non-planar printing, enabling a series of new and emerging applications.
