Presentation Summary

A prerequisite for the manufacturing of Printed Electronics components and systems is the availability of
conductors and electrodes made from materials that are abundantly available, are highly efficient in terms
of material usage, and reduce waste by supporting additive processing. Such materials should be
compatible with flexible, low-cost substrates like PET and paper, and with installed large-scale
manufacturing. The presentation will show advances in Orgacon™ printable conductors based on 2 different
technologies: PEDOT:PSS and nanosilver. For the former the increasing usage as transparent electrodes in
touch sensors will be discussed. For the latter the patterning, performance and cost advantages vs.
traditional silver flake inks will be discussed.
