DuPont Advanced Materials (DuPont) launches a new electronic ink for inkjet printing that offers the high conductivity and strong adhesion required for rapid digital design, prototyping and full-scale manufacturing. The technology will enable digital printing for electronic components and circuits in applications where extremely fine lines are required, such as OLED panels, solar cells, printed antennae and touch panels.
DuPont’s newest conductive ink, PE410, enables rapid prototyping and a smooth transition from “lab to fab” with the versatility to scale up to industrial high-volume inkjet print heads and machines. This allows circuit designers to immediately test a new design, quickly make necessary edits, and, due to reduced silver laydown, save on material costs. The technology also can be adapted to non-planar printing, enabling a series of new and emerging applications.
Stretchable inks for wearable electronics that provide a manufacturing-ready alternative to traditional methods of embedding electronics in clothing and are used to create thin, form-fitting circuits that can be seamlessly bonded with many standard fabrics.
A suite of in-mold electronic inks which help create lighter, less expensive and more beautiful electronic devices by reducing the need for rigid circuit boards. These inks enable circuits to be printed directly onto plastic substrates and allow electronic features such as electronic controls, capacitive switches and LED lighting, to be readily integrated in applications such as home appliances and automobiles.
New low-temperature inks that cure quickly at temperatures as low as 60C, opening up the possibility for printed electronics designers to use a wide range of functional and low-cost plastic films.
