Metallo-Organic Materials for Technical Use

While a substantial amount of our products is used for decorative purposes, Heraeus Precious Coatings has also developed a range of metallo-organic materials for technical usage. The major criteria requested from such precious metal preparations for technical usage is their conductivity.

Most of the metallo-organic materials for technical use are pastes for direct screen printing used on aluminum oxide substrates. After firing our metallo-organic materials form a precious metal layer of 0,1 to 0,5 µm.

Depending on the technical purpose we also offer metallo-organic materials for spraying, dipping or dotting. Some of the materials are merely used as intermediates for paste production, and thus are not directly applied.

Metallo-organic precious metal materials are for example used in the following industries:

  • Automotive: Conductive layers in sensors used in the automotive industry.
  • Electronic: Conductive layers for printheads for thermo printers.
  • Lighting: Reflective layers used in lamp production.
  • Aero: Heat shielding in jet engines.
  • Energy: Superconductive layers for energy transmission
