CHASM Advanced Materials' Co-Founder and COO to Speak on ITO Alternatives at FlexTech 2019

Company will also exhibit its printed carbon nanotube hybrid transparent conduct films, AGeNT, which enables transparency, conductivity, AND flexibility for printed electronics

CANTON, Mass., Feb. 14, 2019 — (PRNewswire) —

CANTON, Mass., Feb. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- CHASM, a leader in next generation advanced materials, today announced that its co-founder and COO, Bob Praino, will present next week at FlexTech 2019. His talk on February 21st at 8 am will explore how the use of materials for transparent conductive films (TCFs) has evolved over the years and how various hybrid structures of conductive metals and carbon nanotubes can overcome certain limitations of Indium Tin Oxide (ITO).

"ITO has been dominant for many decades, but as a shift to flexible film substrates has grown, the evaluation of alternative materials to overcome certain performance and physical limitations of ITO has been significant," said Praino. "One of the key limitations of ITO is that it's a brittle ceramic, so it can be easily crack when flexed. This is a major limitation, as many product designs are moving towards thinner, flexible and 3D-shaped form factors. Materials such as PEDOT, carbon nanotubes (CNT), silver nanowires (AgNW), copper nanowires (CuNW), metal mesh (MM), and various hybrid structures have seen development and inclusion into a range of new products. This talk will review the alternative materials and will discuss selected attributes of each, as independent technology platforms, with a focused discussion of the benefit of considering hybrid structures of conductive metals and carbon nanotubes to overcome certain limitations."

The company will also display its AGeNT Hybrid Transparent Conductive Films, which enables printed electronics to be transparent and conductive, flexible, formable and more cost-effective to design and manufacture. AgeNT Hybrid TCFs combine Silver nanowires (AgNWs) and Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in a novel way to enable patterned TCFs with superior performance and lower cost than AgNW or CNT alone. The development of CHASM's V2V (Viscous-2-Vapor) ink technology provides the platform to transform the usage of CNTs. CNTs, remaining dispersed in V2V, can be easily screen printed using existing technology to facilitate the development and manufacturing of a broad range of transparent conductive film solutions. For applications where transparency, conductivity, AND flexibility are all required this platform is creating a new material category—Flexible Hybrid Transparent Conductive Films.
