Methode Development Company, a business unit of Methode Electronics, Inc., announces a new conductive ink formulated for thermal inkjet systems. Methode's new water-based ink is called product #9101 and is highly conductive when printed with a resolution of 600 dots per inch (DPI).
The printability and conductivity of the ink will be on display at the NIP24/Digital Fabrication 2008 Conference in Pittsburgh, PA from Monday, September 8 until Thursday, September 11, 2008 in the Conference Gallery. Specific applications will also be discussed during the session titled Evaluation of Conductive Inks for Anti-Counterfeiting.
The conductive properties are well-suited for the growing printed electronics market. Security printing, RFID, signage, displays, backplane, photovoltaics and security markets require the efficient and cost effective manufacturing alternative of thermal inkjet printing.
The thermal inkjet formulation contains conductive silver nano-particles, and does not require secondary curing or additional processing. Near full conductivity is achieved within a few minutes of printing. The ink is RoHS-compliant and negligible volatile organic compounds (VOC's) are created during printing, alleviating the need for specialized ventilation during application.
When printed on glossy photo-grade paper, it has a uniform, metallic-gold appearance that is demanded by converters for decorative applications.
