World-Class Conductive Inks at Accessible Pricing

Metalon conductive inks capitalize on advanced materials and formulation to provide conductivity options for additive manufacturing of printed electronics like photovoltaic devices, RFID, smart cards/labels, displays, and advanced packaging.

Utilizing nanoparticles and flakes, Metalon inks are available in off-the-shelf formulations as well as custom formulations for specific applications and print methods. Variants already developed include silver inks suitable for application by inkjet, flexographic printing, and gravure. Copper-oxide reduction inks are also available for screen, flexographic, or gravure application. Metalon inks can be selected based on desired substrates, performance, and cost.

Performance
Sheet resistances as low as 4 milliohms per square and resistivities as low as 1.5x bulk have been attained with silver ink. Sheet resistances below 60 milliohms per square and resistivities as low as 3X bulk have been attained with copper-oxide inkjet reduction ink. Performance varies depending on print method and substrate, and curing used.
