PolyIC’s (www.polyic.com) transparent conductive film (brand name PolyTC®) is based on PolyIC’s roll-to-roll printed electronics technology. The films are electrical components with a high potential for exciting applications.
A PolyTC® film consists of thin metal layers on a plastic film (usually polyester – PET). It is produced in a roll-to-roll process with a minimum structure size in the micrometer range. They are ideal in applications where high transparency and high electrical surface conductivity are needed. In many applications, PolyTC® films replace the widely used indium tin oxide (ITO).
Applications of printed PolyTC®
■ Touch Screens
■ Touch Controls
■ EMI Shielding
■Transparent heating films
■ Electrodes, e.g. for displays or photovoltaics
■ Further applications such as ESD security or high-resolution flexible circuits
Advantages and Features of transparent conductive PolyTC® films
