Visitors will be introduced to Sun Chemical’s range of innovative technologies, including its EMD5800 series of inks for aerosol jet and inkjet systems, functional and graphic inks for in-mold electronics, soldermasks for printed electronics, and SunTronic ECLIPSE technologies ranging from conductive inks and resists to dielectrics and insulators for membrane touch switches (MTS) and other electronics.
With the recent acquisition of Gwent Electronic Materials Ltd., Sun Chemical will also showcase its latest printed electronics offerings of tailor-made conductive inks and pastes for biomedical sensors, electroluminescent materials, cermet pastes for oxygen sensors, piezo and hybrid microcircuits as well as novel materials for printed circuits.
“Our printed electronics customers are looking for a partner that can develop tailor-made materials to support transparent conductors, interconnects, sensors, and more,” said Roy Bjorlin, commercial and strategic initiatives director, Sun Chemical. “Visitors to our booth at LOPEC 2017 can learn how Sun Chemical’s custom solutions for printed antennas, sensors, switches, solar, lighting, PCBs and electronics assembly can help meet their needs.”
Sun Chemical recently introduced EMD5805 nanosilver inks can be used with industry-leading digital and direct write systems. EMD5800 nanosilver inks deliver the industry’s best performing low-temperature sintering properties and its unique chemistry offers long open life as well as superior jetting performance. Optimized for industry-leading aerosol jet and inkjet systems, it is now possible to work with one nanosilver from prototype to production with the EMD5800 series of inks.
During the show, Sun Chemical will display its conductive inks, resists, dielectrics and insulators for membrane touch switches (MTS), sensors, displays, touch panels, printed antenna, and solid state lighting. To support a broad variety of applications, SunTronic ECLIPSE technologies can be tailor-made for specific printing processes, including screen, inkjet, roll-to-roll coating and other print technologies.
Booth visitors will learn that Sun Chemical is the world’s only provider of both functional and graphic inks for in-mold electronics (IME). Offering an “IME Full Stack” where both traditional inks and electronic inks can be sold together from a single source, Sun Chemical is positioned to provide both form and function for the burgeoning IME process. By integrating printed electronics and conventional components into molded structures, IME delivers electronic functionality to the molded part as well as lighter weight, less expensive manufacturing and greater durability.
Sun Chemical also offers the most-used soldermask in Europe, which can be applied via direct imaging (DI) and laser direct imaging (LDI). Soldermask options from Sun Chemical also feature a convenient peelable mask and notation inks for efficient PCB assembly and repair. For electronics manufacturing and decoration, Sun Chemical delivers adhesive tapes, liquid adhesives, coatings, and graphic inks for highly durable electronics.
