Emerging Technologies Conductive Inks

Henkel Electronics is dedicated to developing new and emerging technologies for conductive ink compositions. This market sector covers the gamut of innovative ink compositions ranging from Force Sensing Resistors (FSR) and EMI Shielding, to Transparent Conductors, Photovoltaics (PV) and beyond.

Photovoltaic cells are used to convert solar energy to direct current electricity. With the increased demand for sustainable and renewable energy, the PV cell market stores potential, Conductive inks can be used on flexible and rigid substrates for grid line applications in thin film and photovoltaics.

Our recommended product offering for solar cell printed busbars:

 Silver Inks:

  • ED-461SS
  • ECI 1006 (fine line printing; low contact resistance)

Carbon Inks:

  • ED-440B
  • ED-965 (Halogen free)

Dielectric Inks:

  • PD-038
  • PF-021

In addition to those new technologies for conductive inks mentioned above, there are numerous other applications being developed, and improved, for conductive polymer thick film. Tekra, A Division of EIS, Inc., can assist with those developments through interactive VOC feedback. Our goal is to listen, learn, and lead.
