Formulation of nanomaterials into printable inks
Within the last years Danish Technological Institute has worked intensely on the formulation of nanomaterial into printable inks. So far DTI has experience with formulation of the follow ink types:
- Ink-jet inks – 5-20 cP with 0.5-40 wt% nanomaterial loading
- Screen printable inks – 50-100 cP with 0.5-70 t% nanomaterial loading
DTI can perform rapid screening of solvents and binder materials to find nanomaterial compatibility. Finding the optimal compatibility is key for producing a stable and well-functioning ink. A list of our characterization is shown below.
DTI performs ink testing with compatible ink formulations using ink jet or screen printing. Print testing will provide information about print stability, interaction and adhesion to specific substrates as well as electrical performance. A list of the print testing equipment is shown below.
