Comments: DuPont has developed leading positions in inkjet printing as well as the rapidly growing field of printed electronics. On the inkjet side, DuPont Digital Printing is the leader in ink manufacturing worldwide for desktop printers, supplying many of the leading home printer OEMs. The company also supplies inkjet inks and systems for textile printing with its DuPont Artistri product portfolio.

DuPont is also active in the growing field of conductive inks and metallization pastes for photovoltaics, organic LEDs (OLEDs) semiconductors and printed electronics. DuPont Microcircuit Materials (MCM) ink technologies are suitable for screen print, flexo, gravure, photo-imaging, pad printing, and other processing techniques. Printed electronic materials include biomedical sensor materials, flexible display materials, LuxPrint electroluminescent materials, membrane touch switch materials, materials for printed batteries, printable materials for printed wiring boards, RFID antennae materials, Solamet photovoltaic metallizations, touch sensor materials and other printed electronic applications. In December, DuPont Microcircuit Materials showcased its portfolio of screen printable silver conductive inks formulated for use in printed electronics, to meet the need for low-cost processing in the high-growth and emerging markets for touch screens and OLEDs.
