Conductive inks and pastes provide critical performance characteristics for printed and flexible electronic systems. The choice of materials is varied - metallics such as silver and copper, nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes and graphene are among the more common selections – and each material offers its own advantages to the final conductive system.
For example, Roy Bjorlin, global commercial director, Electronic Materials, Sun Chemical, said that the primary materials used for manufacturing conductive inks are silver particles, resins and solvents.
“At Sun Chemical, we are focused primarily on materials that support our technology road map for advanced metallization processes, including a range of materials to support additive and subtractive processes,” Bjorlin said. “For additive processes, we offer a full range of conductive and nonconductive materials for screen, flexo, gravure, inkjet and offset printing. Subtractive materials we offer include m
