March 15, 2012 — Creative Materials Inc. uncrated an electrically conductive ink for displays manufacturing that boasts a lower cost than conventionally manufactured silver inks. 125-43A/B119-44 is a solvent-resistant electrically conductive ink for touch screen and shielding applications.
The ink is in use for by a customer manufacturing radio-frequency interference (RFI)-shielded displays. It was adapted from CMI’s 118-09A/B, offering the same properties and chemical composition, with a slight decrease in overall conductivity.
The silver content in the touchscreen ink is reduced via a proprietary process at Creative Materials, with very little change in performance. Products can be customized to application needs and specifications.
Creative Materials Inc. manufactures electrically conductive inks, coatings, and adhesives for electronic components used in computing, cell phone, solar, automotive, aerospace, medical instruments, and other applications. Website: www.creativematerials.com.
