SouthWest NanoTechnologies to Exhibit Carbon Nanotube Inks that Lower Display Manufacturing Costs

(Nanowerk News) SouthWest NanoTechnologies, Inc. (SWeNT®), a world leader in high quality, Single-Wall and Specialty Multi-Wall (SMW™) carbon nanotubes (CNT), will be exhibiting new formulations of carbon nanotube inks that can lower display manufacturing costs at the 2013 Society of Information Display (SID) Conference.
SouthWest Nanotechnologies will be in booth #410 May 21-23 at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Canada.
SWeNT currently produces solvent-based and aqueous inks that incorporate SWeNT's Single-Wall CNTs (SWCNTs). Combined with SWeNT's unique ability to tailor the synthesis of CNT materials for applications (using its patented CoMoCAT® process), the inks enable customers to print large area, low-cost devices for a wide range of applications including affordable printed electronics, flexible displays, OLED lighting and photovoltaics.
SWeNT will be introducing a new screen printable ink based on V2V™ technology developed by alliance partner, Chasm Technologies, Inc. These inks eliminate the need for subtractive patterning, and contain no non-volatile additives such as dispersants or viscosity modifiers, which require secondary processing to remove. These solvent-based inks are currently available for screen printing and rod coating, while flexographic and gravure versions are being developed.
SWeNT's A-Series aqueous Inks offer optimal optoelectronic performance. Conductive A-series inks are available for spray, rod or slot-die coating. Semiconducting A-series inks are available for sampling as well as commercial quantities.
SID Display Week is the premier annual showcase of the display industry, valued at over US$100B annually, with North America representing the largest market in the world. Companies that participate in Display Week are viewed as technology leaders by the display industry, and by the international press that covers the conference.
