SouthWest NanoTechnologies Introduces New Inks for Display Technologies
(Nanowerk News) SouthWest NanoTechnologies, Inc. (SWeNT®), a leader in high quality, single-wall and specialty multi-wall carbon nanotubes (CNT) and printable CNT inks, will debut new display materials at Display Week 2012 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (Booth 452) June 3 to June 8.
SWeNT CEO Dave Arthur, joined by Bob Praino of Chasm Technologies, Inc. (Chasm), will also present at a workshop entitled "Carbon Nanotube Technology and Selected Applications" on Monday, June 4th from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. in room 105. SWeNT and Chasm are alliance partners. Mr. Praino has 35 years of experience developing and manufacturing products utilizing film coating processes.
The 50th SID International Symposium, Seminar and Exhibition "Display Week," is the premier international gathering of scientists, engineers, manufactures and users in the electronic information displays field.
At booth 452, SWeNT will highlight applications for its line of conductive and semi-conductive CNT inks for flexible printed electronics and displays. SWeNT inks are based on V2V™ Ink technology developed by Chasm. Using Single-Wall CNTs, these inks can be printed using commercial, high-volume printing methods and equipment, including flexographic, gravure and screen printing.
The breakthrough process eliminates the need for subtractive patterning, which results in a lower cost solution where patterning of the conductive or semiconducting ink is required. Additionally, V2V technology eliminates post-production processes needed to remove viscosity modifiers and surfactants that are present with other printable CNT inks and that degrade optoelectronic performance. Combined with SWeNT's unique ability to tailor the synthesis of CNT materials for applications using its patented CoMoCAT® process, customers are able to print large area, low-cost devices for a wide range of applications including affordable displays, photovoltaics and printed electronics.
