Colored electrically conductive inks and coatings

Creative Materials, Inc. has introduced a family of electrically conductive inks and coatings (product series 126-29) in several primary colors. These new products are finding applications such as touch screens and displays, EMI-RFI shielding, medical devices and wearable electronics, where the functionality of an electrical conductor is required and the appearance of graphics arts is desired. Colored conductive inks feature good color stability and minimal opportunity for surface transfer of conductive particles when compared to conventional conductive inks.
The 126-29 series of products are designed for application by screen-printing, dipping and syringe dispensing. The product line features excellent adhesion to Kapton, Mylar, glass and a variety of other substrates. Unlike conventional conductive materials, these products are very resistant to abrasion, scratching, flexing and creasing. 126-29 is available in red, blue or yellow, and offer maximum sheet resistivity of 5 Ω/sq./mil. These primary colors can be blended to achieve a variety of secondary or tertiary colors. Options include customized blends or versions designed for unique applications. Another product, 112-48N is a black version of 126-29, with sheet resistivity of a maximum of 100 Ω/sq./mil.
Creative Materials, Inc., is a leading manufacturer of custom formulated electrically conductive inks, coatings, and adhesives. Products from Creative Materials are used in a variety of applications that provide cost-effective design solutions for demanding production requirements. Many of these products are used in the manufacturing processes of electronic components for computers, keyboards, cell phones, solar collectors, automobiles and aircraft, medical electrodes, medical devices, and heating equipment.
