This company’s Electronics Group has developed a line of clear conductive inks that reportedly provide superior flexibility, printability and conductivity for multiple applications, including industrial touch screens, electroluminescent (EL) lighting, solar cell manufacturing, and micro-scale LED lighting. Indium tin oxide (ITO) is currently the leading clear conductor technology for today’s touch screens, but the process can be time- and cost-intensive.

To address the challenges with ITO, Henkel reportedly developed Loctite ECI 5000 series clear conductive inks for use with certain industrial touch screens, multiple lighting technologies and solar cells. The transparent inks can be printed using standard printing processes, delivering an additive process that allows for precise control of material deposition pattern and thickness. The ability to print the Henkel inks also reportedly enables extremely high throughput and a reduction in overall process cost as compared to ITO.
