SouthWest NanoTechnologies, Inc. (SWeNT) will demonstrate new carbon nanotube (CNT) applications for printed electronics and touch screens at IDTechEX Printed Electronics & Photovoltaics USA (Booth F107) at the Santa Clara, CAConvention Center.
SWeNT will feature applications using its innovative new ink products and other printed electronics applications for its specialty multi-wall (SMW) CNTs. SWeNT’s CNT Inks, based on V2V Ink technology developed by alliance partner Chasm Technologies, Inc. can be printed using commercial, high-volume printing methods and equipment, including flexographic, gravure and screen printing.
This breakthrough ink technology, combined with SWeNTs unique ability to tailor the synthesis of CNT materials for applications (using its patented CoMoCAT process) will enable customers to print large area, low-cost devices for a wide range of applications including energy-efficient lighting, affordable photovoltaics, improved energy storage and printed electronics.
Robert Praino Jr., co-founder of Chasm Technologies, SWeNTs partner, will discuss advances and innovations for CNT inks in touch panels, on Monday, Dec. 1. His presentation will focus on the ability to formulate inks suitable for conventional gravure, flexo, and screen printing techniques without destroying the opto-electronic properties as well as new research breakthroughs on its V2V Ink technology working with Center for the Advancement of Printed Electronics, Western Michigan University, and Kalamazoo, MI.
