Printing Inks for Touch Panels and 3C

On many devices, membrane switches are increasingly being replaced by touch panels (touch screens) made of glass. The combination of electronics with state-of-the-art glass products results in durable surfaces that are easy to keep clean - making them suitable for medical equipment and building-control systems, for example.

High-opacity screen printing inks for 3C applications/devices (3C = computing, communication, and consumer electronics) meet and exceed the standard resistance and density requirements of the touch panel market.
