Our Technology

Our silver inks are particle-free ink formulations for inkjet, aerosol, screen, and other printing techniques. Conductivities can reach up to 90% of bulk silver with annealing temperatures in the range of 40-140ºC. In addition to our silver ink, we are also developing other particle free metallic and alloy inks including copper.

We also custom formulate and develop chemistries and formulations for a number of markets and challenging applications.

High-performance

Pure metallic films with no binders result in plated-metal properties.

Particle-free

Excellent ink stability, printing yield, and film reliability.

Ideal for wearables

Particle free nature allows for “infiltration” into fabric, resulting in metallization of individual fibers. This allows stretchability on a range of fabrics, and more importantly allowing us to develop true e-textiles.

Printing Compatibility

Our unique chemistry can be tuned for a wide spectrum of printing techniques from inkjet to screen-printing.
