Company Profile

Spraylat Introduces Improved Ink Technology for RFID Applications
Spraylat has developed a new line of improved performance polymer thick film inks.
Spraylat is now introducing a superior performance conductive ink for RFID antennas. This new product, XCMSR-013, is a rotary screen printable silver ink based on thermoplastic polyester chemistry. XCMSR-013 is specifically formulated for high-speed printing and fast cure. It has exceptionally low resistance and can be used for printing circuits at lower film builds. XCMSR-013 is ideal for printing RFID antennas, smart labels, and printed keyboards.
XCMSR-013 Features
  • Superior print accuracy at very high print speeds
  • Superior conductivity
  • Achievable line and space capability of >250 microns
  • Improved trace edge definition
  • Very good adhesion to treated and untreated polyester
  • Excellent screen residence time
  • Faster drying times; Increased throughput
  • Very good flexibility and abrasion resistance
  • Long shelf life
Spraylat's family of polymer thick film inks includes a full range conductors, resistors and UV dielectric inks. In addition to RFID antennas, applications for Spraylat ink products include internal antennas for portable products, membrane switches, keypads, electroluminescent displays, medical applications, flex circuits and rigid circuits.
