Capacitive Touch Panels utilize Carbon Nanotube technology.
Press Release Summary:
December 18, 2012 - Capacitive touch panels with Carbon Nanotube (CNT) technology are designed for use with LCDs for user input applications. CNT offers replacement for ITO in select resistive and capacitive touch panels and improves capacitive touch panel design regarding durability, accuracy, sensitivity, flexibility, transmissivity, and resolution. Manufacturing process also lends to optimized environmentally friendliness and production expenditure efficiency.

We are also one of very few suppliers in the industry offering the latest Carbon Nanotube (CNT) technology. While CNT technology has been around in various forms for some time, recent developments have found it to be a very useful for improving capacitive touch panel design. We are currently using CNT technology as a replacement for ITO in some of our resistive and capacitive touch panels, which offers many benefits. CNT has higher durability, increased accuracy, higher sensitivity, flexible, better transmissivity, capable of higher resolutions, and even has a more environmentally friendly manufacturing process. There is also a cost savings associated with CNT due to cheaper raw materials and no requirement for glass etching, which equates to a more price competitive final product. Further cost reducing options are available, such as offering glass-film (GF), glass-film-film (GFF) and hybrid GFF designs. We also have PCAP touch panel options where the cover glass is integrated into the PCAP glass, removing the need for an extra layer in cases where mechanical thickness is a concern.
