AGFA printed electronics PEDOT:PSS conductive polymer and nano silver ink, interview with IDTechEx

Posted by – January 12, 2015

In Printed Electronics Agfa offer a PEDOT:PSS conductive polymer and, recently, a nano silver ink. The PEDOT:PSS material is used for antistatic optical films and device packaging. In this application AGFA coat the substrate themselves. AGFA also has developed a range of screen printed PEDOT:PSS conductive inks. The material is widely used in polymer capacitors. The emerging application is transparent electrodes. AGFA has also developed a nanosilver ink to support high conductivity over a long range with short range conductivity and transparency provided by PEDOT:PSS.

This interview with AGFA and IDTechEx was conducted at Printed Electronics USA - the largest event in the world on the topic. For more information see http://www.idtechex.com
