Conductive Copper inks are finally available. Just print and sinter for 2 sec to achieve up to 50% bulk conductivity. The new inks allow low-temperature sintering under air and do not require any special equipment like photonic or laser sintering. Made out of Copper nanoparticles - it is much cheaper than silver inks and environmentally friendly and compatible with standard printing equipment.
講演者の経歴 (Ofer Shochet)

View Copprint Timeline
Copprint breakthrough in conductive inks - a cheap nano copper ink which is self-sintered at low temperatures.
For many years people have been using expensive silver inks for conductive patterns and failed to develop copper ink, as oxidation prevented conductivity. Copprint's patented Nano-based copper ink solves this issue using a self-sintering mechanism. It is substantially cheaper than silver ink.
Our ink achieves 30% bulk conductivity after just 2 seconds at 150º C (air environment, no capital investment - e.g. no need for photonic sintering or expensive lasers, environmental friendly). 50%+ bulk conductivity is achieved at higher temperatures.
Copprint disrupts the $2.2B market of silver inks and will open new applications for affordable conductive ink: RFIDs printed on paper, touch panel bezel contacts, printed antennas, printed electronics, heaters & defoggers.
Copprint was founded in 2016 by Dr. Michael Grouchko, a world expert in conductive nano inks and Dr. Ofer Shochet.
