Chementator: A less expensive way to make conductive coatings

By Edited by Gerald Ondrey |

Cambrios Technologies Corp. (Sunnyvale, Calif.; www.cambrios.com) has formed a strategic partnership with Chisso Corp. (www.chisso.co.jp) and Sumitomo Corp. (both Tokyo; www.sumitomocorp.co.jp) for commercialization of Cambrios’ first product, ClearOhm coating material. Targeted for the liquid crystal display (LCD) market, ClearOhm is seen as a solution to some of the problems with the currently available transparent conductive coatings that are made from Indium tin oxide (ITO) and other conductive oxides. Transparent conductive materials are widely used for displays, touch panels, solar cells and other applications. Coatings of these materials, such as ITO, are deposited using expensive, energy-consuming vacuum-sputtering processes. The market has been interested in finding a replacement for ITO to eliminate the high cost of processing involved. Cambrios’ technology consists of a dispersion of metallic nanowires in a solvent, which is typically water, that has a viscosity and surface tension suitable for most wet-processing coating equipment and substrates. The coating can be formed at room temperature using standard coating process equipment, such as slot die, gravure and spin coaters, instead of sputtering. The coated…
