These formable, conductive silver inks provide unparalleled performance benefits, including low resistance before and after thermoforming, high degree of formability, consistent print performance, resistance to ink wash off and strong adhesion to polymer substrates like Polycarbonate (PC) and PET (polyethylene terephthalate).
In-mold electronics silver inks can be applied using screen-printing technology with either polyester or stainless-steel mesh. A wide range of mesh sizes can be used. Furthermore, many compatible substrates can be used including PET, polycarbonate (PC), as well as other substrates and films suitable for in-mold electronics.
- Outstanding fine-line printing
- Excellent conductivity
- Suitable for high throughput, high speed printing
- Produce robust, reliable, and high-performance IME products using high throughput processes
These inks have outstanding fine-line printing, excellent conductivity, and are suitable for high throughput, high speed printing. They are compatible with MacDermid Alpha’s range of formable Dielectric Inks and formable Adhesives, as well as commercially available graphic inks. This inter-compatible suite of formable ink products ensures that customers can produce robust, reliable, and high-performance IME products using high throughput processes.
The suite of conductive silver inks are offered in several forms, including micron-silver flakes and nano-silver particles. These IME compatible silver inks are tailored to meet the varying formability needs of diverse capacitive touch applications such as smart automotive interior surfaces, white goods control panels, smart packaging sensor surfaces and similar smart HMI (human machine interface) surfaces.
