Company Profile (Liquid X Printed Metals)

Liquid X Printed Metals logo
Liquid X Printed Metals, Inc., the company formerly known as Metalonix, Inc., has demonstrated the ability to upset the current market offerings in conductive ink. The cutting edge technology transforms metal, such as silver or gold, into ink form which can be precisely deposited onto a wide variety of substrates. When heated to a low temperature, the ink converts to the base metal and exhibits comparable characteristics. Liquid X Printed Metals has taken the markets highly demanded attributes and wrapped them into one package, providing better functionality through a more cost effective approach.
