PriElex® Electronic Inks

Heraeus Electronics proudly offers our new line of PriElex® Electronic Inks, your gateway to a wide range of innovative applications in the field of printed electronics. Polymer Thick Film (PTF) pastes, also known as electronic inks or low-temperature pastes, have revolutionized the way we think about designing and manufacturing electronic devices. With their unique properties and versatility, they offer countless opportunities for engineers and product developers to create cutting-edge solutions.

So, what are the benefits of using PTF pastes in your projects? Let's dive in!

  • Flexibility and adaptability: PTF pastes are designed to be applied onto flexible substrates, enabling the production of lightweight, bendable, and even stretchable electronic components. This opens up a world of possibilities for applications in wearable devices, smart textiles, flexible displays, and more.
  • Low-temperature curing: Unlike traditional thick film pastes, PTF pastes can be cured at relatively low temperatures, eliminating the need for high-temperature processing. This makes them compatible with heat-sensitive substrates like polymers, paper, and even fabrics, expanding the range of materials that can be used in printed electronics.
  • Cost-effectiveness: PTF pastes offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional manufacturing methods such as etching or sputtering. Their compatibility with large-scale printing processes, such as screen printing and inkjet printing, allows for high-volume production at a lower cost, making them ideal for mass-market applications.
  • Versatile material properties: PTF pastes can be formulated with a wide range of conductive, resistive, and dielectric materials, giving engineers the freedom to tailor their properties for specific application requirements. Whether you need high conductivity, low resistance, or insulation capabilities, PTF pastes can be customized to meet your exact needs.
  • Integration with conventional manufacturing processes: PTF pastes can seamlessly integrate with existing manufacturing processes, enabling the creation of hybrid circuits that combine the benefits of printed electronics with the reliability of conventional electronic components. This allows for a smooth transition from traditional PCB-based designs to advanced hybrid systems.
  • Environmental friendliness: PTF pastes are typically solvent-based, reducing the need for hazardous chemicals compared to other manufacturing techniques. Additionally, the compatibility with low-temperature processing reduces energy consumption, making PTF pastes a more environmentally friendly choice for electronic manufacturing.

The applications of PTF pastes are virtually endless. From smart packaging, medical devices, and novel heating technology to automotive electronics and IoT sensors, PTF pastes can be utilized in a wide range of industries. They offer engineers and product developers the freedom to explore new design concepts and bring innovative solutions to life.
