Printed Electronics simplified through InkTech
Ink & production technology for sustainable electronics
Saralon GmbH has developed a series of electronics inks for paper electronic productions. Together with electronic inks, Saralon is simplifying electronic printing processes for sustainable electronic manufacturing.
Apart from improving paper, there is a huge need for electronic inks which are suitable for paper. Most of the commercially available inks for Printed Electronics are designed for plastic substrate, especially PET. PET has very low surface roughness, good dimensional stability and good water barrier property. For paper electronics, inks are needed that can dry or cure faster (<60 seconds) and at lower temperature (<100°C). This way only the dimensional stability of the paper can be maintained for multiple layer printing with accurate registration.
