Creative Materials Offers New Lower Cost Silver Inks and Adhesives

Ayer, MA: Creative Materials, Inc., has continued to develop promising lower cost alternatives to conventionally manufactured silver inks and adhesives. With several new products qualified for production, we are confidently expanding our lower cost product line. In applications where a slight reduction in conductivity may be acceptable, these new "economical" products can provide cost savings while delivering the same high-quality performance of our standard silver inks and adhesives.

Two new successful lower cost products:
125-43A/B119-44, Solvent-Resistant Electrically Conductive Ink-Developed for touch screens and shielding applications, this product has been successfully implemented in the manufacture of RFI-shielded displays. Adapted from CMI's highly regarded 118-09A/B, 125-43A/B offers the same properties and chemical composition, with a slight decrease in overall conductivity.

125-46A/B,C, Economical Electrically Conductive Epoxy Adhesive-With little compromise to overall conductivity, this product was developed for making attachments on electrical and mechanical devices. Available for a wide range of dispensing options, 125-46A/B,C can be used with direct write and jet-dispensing systems. Based on the chemistry of our popular 124-08A/B,C, this product is also available in a two-component easily mixed one-to-one system and a one-component pre-mixed system.

Creative Materials' R&D team has been able to reduce overall silver content through a proprietary process, yielding very little change in performance. These silver complex inks and adhesives feature excellent adhesive properties, flexibility, and solvent resistance. We are expanding this innovative process to other products, responding to the demand for lower cost alternatives in the face of increased silver cost. Products can be customized to your application needs and product specifications. Please contact us with the specifics of your application.
