Southwest Nanotechnologies Introducing Carbon Nanotube Inks And Prototyping Kits At 2011 Flexible Electronics And Displays Conference

Norman, OK | Posted on January 17th, 2011

SouthWest NanoTechnologies, Inc. (SWeNT), the world leader in high quality, Single-Wall and Specialty Multi-Wall (SMW™) carbon nanotubes (CNT), is introducing its family of conductive and semi-conductive CNT inks for flexible printed electronics and displays at the FlexTech Alliance 2011 Flexible Electronics and Displays Conference and Exhibition.

SWeNT will be exhibiting in booth 214 at the Flexible Electronics and Displays Conference and Exhibition (FlexTech), February 7 - 10 at the Arizona Grand Resort in Phoenix, AZ.

SWeNT® CNT Inks are based on V2V™ Ink technology developed by alliance partner, Chasm Technologies, Inc. Using Single-Wall CNTs (SWCNTs), these inks can be printed using commercial, high-volume printing methods and equipment, including flexographic, gravure and screen printing.

The breakthrough process eliminates the need for subtractive patterning as well as post-production processes needed to remove ink dispersants and surfactants that are present with other printable CNT inks that degrade optoelectronic performance. Combined with SWeNT's unique ability to tailor the synthesis of CNT materials for applications (using its patented CoMoCAT® process), customers are able to print large area, low-cost devices for a wide range of applications including affordable photovoltaics, printed electronics and displays.

SWeNT will also be offering prototyping kits in several varieties of inks, for customers and potential partners to run trials to test the ink for existing applications.

"The customer feedback for this innovative, cost-efficient ink has been extremely positive and now we have pre-existing prototyping kits to validate the quality of our products to use with their existing printing processes," explains SWeNT CEO Dave Arthur. "Carbon nanotubes can finally be printed with a high quality, lower cost result that will drive commercial demand in many applications."

The 10th annual Flextech conference brings together a collection of experts from industry, academia and R&D to share the latest advances in flexible, printed electronics and displays. Conference sessions will focus on the emerging fields of flexible, printed and organic electronics manufacturing, including solar and photovoltaic, solid-state, RFID, sensors, touch, energy storage, medical devices and flexible display applications and markets.
