November 22, 2011 — DuPont Microcircuit Materials (MCM), a business unit of DuPont Electronics & Communications, introduced a screen-printable silver conductor material for the printed electronics market, DuPont 5064H. The silver conductor ink provides resistivity ≤6milliΩ per square per mil.
DuPont 5064H can be printed onto substrates including Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), Polyethylene-Naphthalate (PEN), DuPont Kapton polyimide films, paper, and more. The composition is solvent-based and was designed to be screen printed in semi-automatic or high-volume reel-to-reel (R2R) applications.
The new product aims to allow printed electronics manufacturing with less material but high performance, said Scott Gordon, market segment manager — DuPont Microcircuit Materials. “DuPont 5064H can reduce silver cost by providing higher conductivity with thinner prints of conductor traces.” Gordon adds that high-current application that previously required double print steps can go down to one print step with the 5064H material.
See the new material at the Printed Electronics USA trade show, November 30-December 1, 2011, in Santa Clara, CA.
