Silver conductive inks
Conductive inks and thick pastes for the most demanding applications of flexible, stretchable, and plastic electronics.
Our silver conductive inks and thick pastes make use of the latest advances in materials science and technology to provide aqueous formulations which match the performance of conventional solvent inks.
Silver is the most electrically and thermally conductive metal. Despite its cost, it remains the material of choice in applications where high conductivity is critical for the device operation.
Main features and benefits
- low-temperature cure at any temperature between 25 °C and 190 °C, suitable for printing on polymers, paper, textile, biological materials, and other heat sensitive substrates
- excellent environmental stability once cured, including in humid and warm conditions
- thermally stable up to 220 °C once cured
- stored at room temperature with shelf life exceeding 12 months
- drastically reduced transport and storage costs, due to lack of flammable solvents and no need for low-temperature fridge storage
- reduced compliance costs.
Our products are particularly advantageous in applications where solvent inks cannot be used because the organic solvent reacts and causes damage to other components in the assembly.
In medical devices and wearable technology, our silver inks offer aqueous formulations free from organic solvents, meeting the demanding non-toxicity requirements in these applications.
Additionally, our silver conductive inks are suitable for general purpose use offering ultimate safety and convenience, without the need for specialist solvent extraction.
Silver conductive inks are one of the most widely used materials in printed, plastic and hybrid electronics simply because all electronic devices require multiple interconnects. However, novel applications often require bespoke and innovative materials to enable new functionalities and properties which cannot be met by existing products on the market.
Many of our silver conductive inks are custom made for specific applications. For example, ink formulations can be uniquely designed to meet specific requirements for processing and cure, specialist substrates, mechanical properties, and environmental stability.
