Synthesis And Formulation Of Particles Inks For Inkjet And Aerosol-Jet Printing Methods
15:40 - 16:05
IKTS will present the synthesis of material inks based on Ag, Au, Pt, Pd, Rh and Cu. Important ink specifications like particle size, viscosity, surface tension, sedimentation stability as well as electronic conductivities and adhesion of printed films will be discussed. A new millisecond functionalization technique based on a line laser system, to cure printed films on thermal sensitive substrates, will be presented.
