Screen Printable Functionalised Graphene Ink

03 November 2015

Haydale’s proprietary HDPlas technology has been used to create functionalised Graphene Nanoplatelets (GNPs) that have been incorporated into a functional graphene ink, which has been developed for screen printing; the ink has been created with area printing applications in mind.

A recent report in Solid State Technology details how a screen-printable functional graphene based ink, supplied by Goodfellow, performs better than many normal carbon-based ink, opening the door to innovative applications that require enhanced electrical conductivity, excellent adhesion on a range of substrates and high print resolution. Such applications are found in sensors, displays, printed electronics and electrodes.

Made with its HDPlas functionalised Graphene Nanoplatelets, Haydale explains that the ink supplied to Goodfellow offers many advantageous distinguishing characteristics including good adhesion and flexibility (on appropriate substrates), is 100% organic-based (is non-tarnishing) and curable at low temperatures. Environmentally friendly, the ink can be modified for specific substrates applications or for a given application.
