Applied Nanotech Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: APNT) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI) and its strategic partner in Japan have won the prestigious IDTechEx Printed Electronics Technical Development Materials Award for the most significant technical development over the last 24 months (February 2007 - February 2009) in the field of material development.
ANI won for its inkjettable conductive copper ink that can be processed in air and printed on a flexible thin film substrate such as a polyimide. This low cost technology can pave the way for a new generation of environmentally friendly products and manufacturing methods. Within the printed electronics industry, it is well known that making products smaller and more efficiently is a major way to reduce energy use, costs, and negative environmental impact.
The creation of this inkjettable ink allows geometries and layers to be placed exactly where they are needed, in a process known as additive manufacturing. The low processing temperature of the ink enables the use of thin film substrates, creating a reduction in energy use and material usage. Copper itself is substantially less expensive than silver, a material commonly used in printed electronics, while its conductivity is only five percent lower.
"It is an honor to be recognized by IDTechEx and a panel of independent experts in printed electronics," said Dr. Zvi Yaniv, CEO of Applied Nanotech, Inc. "We hope that this accomplishment will facilitate the expansion of the printed electronics industry."
"Our investors and strategic partner have dedicated significant financial resources to this effort," said Thomas Bijou, CEO of Applied Nanotech Holdings, Inc. "It is gratifying to receive recognition for the truly innovative nature of these developments."
Applied Nanotech, Inc. is an R&D IP company focused on solving problems at the molecular level. Its team of PhD level scientists and engineers work with companies and other organizations to solve technical impasses and create innovations that will create a competitive advantage.
