PPG has been working with other companies to develop silver nano-wire coatings – and, in some cases, developed complimentary coatings technologies to further enhance the AgNW coatings.
The Pittsburgh, PA-based company recently developed a silver nano-wire based patterning paste, which was shown at the South China Touch Panel and Display show in November 2017 and SID’s Display Week in May. It will be featured again at PPG’s booth at IDTechEx.
“This is a screen printable ink, that when printed in a selective pattern on AgNW coatings or film, it effectively disables the AgNW conductivity just in the areas where printed,” said John M. Yundt, PPG’s global business manager, EM-Conductive Materials. “This is an exceptional advantage in that is drastically reduces the time and cost involved in patterning the AgNW when used as a transparent conductive electrode for various touch panel applications.
“Normally, companies would use
