Nissha cited Activegrid’s outstanding overall performance including low haze, superior transparency and high conductivity in its selection criteria. Under the terms of the agreement, the two companies are developing and testing technologies to ensure environmental durability of silver nanowire based transparent inks.
This announcement follows C3nano’s acquisition of Aiden Co. Ltd. Korea, Asia’s largest synthesizer and producer of AgNWs. C3nano will showcase Activegrid at the SID Display Week show at the San Jose Convention Center, taking place June 2-4 in booth 1420.
