SouthWest NanoTechnologies, Inc. (SWeNT®), the world leader in high quality, Single-Wall and Specialty Multi-Wall (SMW™) carbon nanotubes (CNT), will display its family of conductive and semi-conducting CNT inks for flexible printed electronics at the FlexTech Alliance 2013 Flexible Electronics and Displays Conference and Exhibition. SWeNT will be exhibiting in booth 48, Jan. 30th to Feb. 1st at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, AZ.
SWeNT currently produces solvent-based and aqueous inks that incorporate SWeNT's Single-Wall CNTs (SWCNTs). Combined with SWeNT's unique ability to tailor the synthesis of CNT materials for applications (using its patented CoMoCAT® process), the inks enable customers to print large area, low-cost devices for a wide range of applications including affordable printed electronics, flexible displays and photovoltaics.
SWeNT's V-series inks eliminate the need for subtractive patterning, and contain no non-volatile additives such as dispersants or viscosity modifiers which require secondary processing to remove. These solvent based inks are currently available for screen printing and rod coating, while flexographic and gravure versions are being developed. 'V-Series' inks are based on V2V™ technology developed by alliance partner, Chasm Technologies, Inc.
SWeNT's A-Series aqueous Inks offer optimal optoelectronic performance. Conductive A-series inks are available for spray, rod or slot-die coating. Semiconducting A-series inks are in the final stages of development and are available for sampling.
The Flextech conference brings together a collection of experts from industry, academia and R&D to share the latest advances in flexible, printed electronics and displays. Conference sessions will focus on the emerging fields of flexible, printed and organic electronics manufacturing, including solar and photovoltaic, solid-state, RFID, sensors, touch, energy storage, medical devices and flexible display applications and markets.
