The company reports that C3Nano’s ActiveGrid Gen7 provides excellent optical clarity with outstanding conductivity from 30-100 ohm/sq. and the flexibility to withstand more than a million bend cycles. ActiveGrid Gen7 ink is now available for volume shipments to customers.
To obtain less dense films without junction resistance, C3Nano uses its patented NanoGlue technology to fuse the junctions of silver nanowires, creating a more transparent grid that yields superior clarity and conductivity while supporting the flexibility needed for today’s and tomorrow’s consumer display products.
Based on its optical performance and strong IP position, C3Nano’s ActiveGrid is already in mass production for two of the world’s initial flexible display devices. The company currently holds more than 20 core patents with an additional 45 pending, covering its breakthrough NanoGlue technology, nanomaterial synthesis, ink formulations, conductive films, and the use of conductive and patterned conductive films in a variety of devices and applications. Evidence suggests that competitors are currently using C3Nano’s proprietary fusing technology in an attempt to achieve performance closer to C3Nano proprietary products.
“ActiveGrid Gen 7 ink is the result of our drive to lead the industry in flexible touchscreen and display materials,” said Dr. Ajay Virkar, CTO and co-founder of C3Nano. “Rather than pre-announcing our products by months or years, or asserting baseless patent claims, we continue to improve our technology, and the proof is in our unrivaled performance.”
