Visitors will learn about Sun Chemical’s wide range of innovative technologies, including its EMD5800 series of inks for aerosol jet and inkjet systems, functional and graphic inks for in-mold electronics, soldermasks for printed circuits, conductive pastes for smart sensors, tapes, adhesives, and polymers, and SunTronic ECLIPSE technologies ranging from conductive inks and resists to dielectrics and insulators for membrane touch switches (MTS) and other electronics.
“Printed electronics manufacturers are looking for a partner that can develop tailor-made solutions for transparent conductors, interconnects, sensors, and more,” said Roy Bjorlin, commercial & strategic initiatives director, Sun Chemical. “Visitors of our IDTechEx booth can learn how Sun Chemical’s custom materials for printed antennas, sensors, switches, solar, lighting, PCBs, and electronics assembly can help meet their needs.”
Sun Chemical recently introduced EMD5805, the latest addition to its EMD5800 series of nanosilver inks for inkjet systems, which can be used with industry-leading digital and direct write systems. EMD5800 nanosilver inks deliver superior low-temperature sintering properties while offering long open life as well as superior jetting performance. Optimized for industry leading aerosol jet and inkjet systems, it is now possible to work with one nanosilver from prototype to production with the EMD5800 series of inks.
During the show, Sun Chemical will display its conductive inks, resists, dielectrics and insulators for membrane touch switches (MTS), sensors, displays, touch panels, printed antenna, and solid state lighting. To support a broad variety of applications, SunTronic ECLIPSE technologies can be tailor-made for specific printing processes, including screen, inkjet, roll-to-roll coating, and other print technologies.
With the recent acquisition of Gwent Electronic Materials Ltd., Sun Chemical will also showcase its latest printed electronics offerings of tailor-made conductive inks and pastes for biomedical sensors, electroluminescent materials, cermet pastes for oxygen sensors, piezo, and hybrid microcircuits as well as novel materials for printed circuits.
Booth visitors will learn that Sun Chemical is the world’s only provider of both functional and graphic inks for in-mold electronics (IME). Offering an “IME Full Stack” where both traditional inks and electronic inks can be sold together from a single source, Sun Chemical is positioned to provide both form and function for the burgeoning IME process.
Sun Chemical offers the most-used soldermask in Europe, which can be applied via direct imaging (DI) and laser direct imaging (LDI). Soldermask options from Sun Chemical also feature a convenient peelable mask and notation inks for efficient PCB assembly and repair. For electronics manufacturing and decoration, Sun Chemical delivers adhesive tapes, liquid adhesives, coatings, and graphic inks for highly durable and beautiful electronics.
Sun Chemical will also present a range of technologies from its parent company, the DIC Corporation, including DAITAC pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) tapes for manufacturing commercial electronics, liquid adhesives for display applications, and EPICLON epoxy resins for highly durable PCB packaging assemblies.
