From printed electronics and conductive inks to anti-microbial additives, our nanoscale metal particles manufactured directly into a dispersion can be formulated more readily into inks or coatings than other solid-form nanopowders. The oxidation and aggregation of metal nanoparticles can be minimised in liquid dispersion because the solvent carrier provides some protection.
Printed electronics applications benefit from a smaller particle size, resulting in lowering sintering temperatures, and therefore the ability to be used on temperature-sensitive, flexible substrates. In healthcare applications, the very high surface area increases the effectiveness of copper as an anti-microbial active.
