Conductive Silver and Carbon Inks
Tekra has partnered with world class science and engineering pioneer, Henkel Electronic Materials (Henkel), as an authorized distributor for Loctite® brand of conductive inks and conductive coatings. Our association provides customers collaborative technical support encompassing the full range of conductive ink material compositions.
The Tekra/Henkel partnership delivers value to our customers in many ways including: product recommendations, custom inventory programs, product innovations through application development, and unparalleled commercial and technical support. Tekra carries a wide variety of conductive inks that are complementary to the Printed Electronics and related markets, including:
- Printed Electronics including flexible circuits for membrane switches
- Printed resistors and heating elements
- Flexible displays and touch screens
- Biomedical sensors and EKG/ECG electrodes
- RFID Antennas for contactless smart cards / RFID labels
- Emerging Technologies and product innovation
These functional compositions can be used to form conductive traces, capacitor or resistor elements, biosensors and dielectric and encapsulating layers. All polymer thick film ink technologies are compatible with a variety of substrates (e.g. polyester to glass) and; printing techniques including: screen, flexographic, rotogravure, etc.
- Conductive silver ink
- Conductive carbon ink
- Silver-silver chloride ink
- Dielectric ink
- Carbon resistor ink
Only Tekra can provide material solutions for electrically conductive inks and coatings from Henkel, and high performance polyester and PEN films from DuPont Teijin Films™.
Printed Electronics is a technology involving printing conductive circuit patterns, typically in conjunction with thin a polymer protective coating, for use in interconnecting electronic devices. In use since the 1950’s, printed electronics have evolved from introductory flexible circuits, to today’s more advanced flexible electronic products.Learn More
Carbon and silver inks, along with unique blends of these conductive compositions, offer a variety of electronic printing end uses. Applications range from heating elements for residential & commercial use and exterior automotive (lights, mirrors, etc.) to printed resistors and potentiometers.Learn More
