A screen-printable functionalized graphene ink supplied by Goodfellow performs better than normal carbon-based ink, opening the door to innovative applications that require exceptional electrical conductivity, excellent ink coverage, and high print resolution. Such applications are found in light flexible displays, plastic electronics, printed circuit boards, thin film photovoltaics, sensors, electrodes, and OLEDs.
The ink is made with HDPlas (R) functionalized graphene nanoplatelets and is optimized for the viscosity and solid contents required of semi-automatic and manual screen-printing equipment. Substrates that can be printed include but are not limited to polymers, ceramics, and papers.
In addition to the distinguishing characteristics stated above, functionalized graphene ink is:
- Flexible on appropriate substrates
- Metal-free, 100% organic (non-tarnishing)
- Curable at low temperatures
- Environmentally friendly
The ink is fully customizable and can be modified for specific applications. Scientists and printers running trials with the small quantities available from Goodfellow (100g to 1000g) can, if desired, consult with Goodfellow to further tailor performance in order to meet individual needs.
