Product Recommendation

Creative Materials’ extensive line of conductive silver inks, in standard and custom formulations, encompasses a wide range of markets, including consumer electronics, medical devices and alternative energy solutions. The superior conductivity of Creative Materials’ silver inks enables our customers to print narrower and longer circuit trace lines without compromising overall maximum ohm values, which can result in significant cost savings.

Silver ink applications include EMI/RFI shielding of polyimide flexible circuits, polymer thick-film circuitry, membrane switches and coatings for tantalum capacitors. Our silver inks can be applied by screen-printing, pad-printing, flexography and rotogravure and they feature high electrical conductivity and are resistant to abrasion, scratching, flexing and creasing. Our silver conductive inks adhere to a wide variety of substrates including Kapton, Mylar, glass, polycarbonate, polyimide, polyester, ITO-coated surfaces, Teflon and silicone surfaces.
