Water-Based Conductive Printing Ink Introduced for RFID Antennas

August 2, 2006

The new technology enables broader processing capability, a critical requirement for RFID and other emerging applications in the printed electronics market.

PORT HURON, MI -- Acheson Electronic Materials has introduced novel, water-based conductive printing ink technology that provides manufacturers of RFID antennas and other printed electronic circuitry with many production and performance advantages.

The new technology enables Acheson to provide products with a wider scope of processing capability, a critical requirement for RFID and other emerging applications in the printed electronics market space, according to Greg Gaitens, sales manager, Acheson Electronic Materials.

"These are environmentally friendly inks that do not require expensive solvent recovery equipment during processing," said Gaitens. "These novel, water-based conductive inks are fast drying and highly stable at room temperature, enabling high-speed assembly with minimum product waste, therefore minimizing assembly cost. In addition, their low-temperature cure allows for the use of low-cost temperature-sensitive substrates, such as PET and paper."
