Sun Chemical, GGI and NRC Introduce Screen-Printable Molecular Inks

Plastics Decorating

Sun Chemical, Parsippany, New Jersey, has entered into a license agreement to introduce a new family of molecular inks for the printed electronics market with Groupe Graham International (GGI) and the National Research Council of Canada (NRC).

Based on ionic molecules processed through a reduction process, the new IPS family of products will offer a viable alternative to conventional polymer thick film conductive inks and serve as a low-cost alternative to nano materials. The IPS family of products include silver and copper metallization options that can be applied by screen, inkjet or other high-speed printing methods.

The molecular inks feature sub-micron trace thickness that will enable the production of narrow traces in thin dielectric layers on a variety of applications, including in-mold electronics (IME), printed antenna, displays, EMI/RFI and sensors. The molecular ink technology developed by GGI and the NRC will be produced by Sun Chemical and promoted collaboratively by all three organizations.
