To shape the future

YOU NEED THE RIGHT TECHNOLOGY

PRELECT® TPS Nano Silver Conductive Inks allow the direct printing of conductive patterns for electronic devices on almost any surface – including 3D substrates – in an easy, fast, and environmentally compatible process.

Challenge

CONVENTIONAL PRINTED ELECTRONICS PROCESSES LACK FLEXIBILITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL COMPATIBILITY

Imagine a life without electronics. Impossible – smartphones, laptops, tablets are already part of our day. In the future, that will increase more and more – and smart will become even smarter. Flexible phones you can wear around your wrist. Intelligent band-aids measuring heart signals. The possibilities are endless – and the technology has to have the power to be as flexible as these ideas.

Current manufacturing processes for electronics require extensive production facilities with high energy consumption, involve chemical metallization processes using large amounts of various toxic and hazardous chemicals and produce large amounts of waste water.

Solution

FUNCTIONAL INKS WITH A
HIGH CONDUCTIVITY

Clariant’s PRELECT® TPS Nano Silver Conductive Inks use nanosized silver particles in a water-based ink to form conductive patterns on a broad variety of surfaces. To prepare the ink, specially developed dispersants and capping agents from Clariant’s own portfolio are used to create tailor-made functional inks with high electrical conductivity.

When printed, the PRELECT® TPS Nano Silver Conductive Inks become electrically conductive after a sintering process at temperatures of just above 100 °C.
