New Process Reduces Silver Cost and Maintains Performance

Ayer, MA, March 2012: Creative Materials, Inc., has continued to develop promising lower cost inks and adhesives using a proprietary process that significantly reduces cost while maintaining high conductivity. With several new products qualified for production, we are confidently expanding our lower cost product line. These new economical products can provide cost savings while delivering the same high-quality performance of our standard silver inks and adhesives.

Two new successful lower cost products:
125-43A/B119-44, Solvent-Resistant Electrically Conductive Ink – Developed for touch screens and shielding applications, this product has been successfully implemented in the manufacture of RFI-shielded displays. Adapted from CMI’s highly regarded 118-09A/B, 125-43A/B offers the same properties and chemical composition, with comparable overall conductivity. 125-43A/B Datasheet

125-46A/B,C, Economical Electrically Conductive Epoxy Adhesive – Offering equivalent conductivity to traditional conductive epoxy, this product was developed for making attachments on electrical and mechanical devices. Available for a wide range of dispensing options, 125-46A/B,C can be used with direct write and jet-dispensing systems. Based on the chemistry of our popular 124-08A/B,C, it is also available in a two-component easily mixed one-to-one system and a one-component pre-mixed system. 125-46A/B,C Datasheet

Using a proprietary process, Creative Materials’ R&D team has been able to reduce product cost while maintaining a high level of conductivity, yielding no appreciable change in performance. These silver complex inks and adhesives feature excellent adhesive properties, flexibility, and solvent resistance. We are expanding this innovative process to other products, responding to the demand for lower cost alternatives in the face of increased silver cost. Products can be customized to your application needs and product specifications. Please contact us with the specifics of your application.
