DuPont Microcircuit Materials (MCM) is introducing a new series of screen printed conductive ink materials for the printed electronics market, designed to offset the rising cost of silver.
Utilizing proprietary technology and under typical processing conditions used for many printed electronic applications, DuPont PE8XX series conductive inks can provide low resistivity with 20 percent or more potential cost savings for manufacturers.
DuPont will highlight these and more innovations in its expanding portfolio of functional inks and pastes for the growing printed electronics industry during Printed Electronics USA 2012
"Since 2005, the increased price of silver has created a challenge for printed electronics manufacturers - it's a cost competitive market, yet, no one can afford to compromise performance and quality," said Scott Gordon, business development manager - DuPont Microcircuit Materials.
"The new DuPont PE8XX series conductive inks represent breakthrough technologies with a balance of properties that can significantly reduce the impact of silver market fluctuations, while maintaining the performance characteristics required to help our customers successfully compete in today's market."
DuPont PE8XX conductive ink materials are designed for use with standard thermal curing techniques and for photonic curing equipment such as the NovaCentrix PulseForge and Xenon Sinteron tools that provide manufacturers low temperature processing and fast drying for high speed roll to roll production capability.
Materials in the PE8XX series are suitable for use in printed electronics applications such as membrane switches, RFID, electroluminescent lighting and other emerging applications including flexible displays. They also can be customized for other specialized applications.
