Services

We work with our customers to develop equipment solutions tailored to printing their inks or advanced materials on specific substrates to streamline their development cycle and create exciting new products

Ink Formulation Expertise

Sensor Films offers the ability to have unique functionality built into your ink. Our Ink Formulation team is staffed by scientists who have extensive experience in formulating functional materials for the piezo inkjet deposition process. We work with your team to understand your objectives and build an ink that meets your needs for a high volume production environment.

Sensor Films will assist the customer during all stages of ink formulation development, from initial feasibility to final commercialization for an industrial, high speed, piezo ink jet printer. Current focus is on printing and patterning conductive materials for the printed electronics industry.

We provide the following formulation capabilities:

  • water-based, solvent-based, UV-curable and solid wax inks
  • incorporation of functional materials in the ink
  • technology to stabilize functional materials in the ink
  • formulate for optimal performance in the printing system
  • provide ink and substrate recommendations for future development and commercialization
  • assist in ink scale-up and commercialization, utilizing Phase and Gate methodology to establish goals and assess results
