Multi-material 3D printing is a game-changer, enabling designers to 3D print polymers and metals in a single print to build functional electronic parts for devices requiring sophisticated features. This revolutionary approach to electronics manufacturing enables more compact, denser and non-planar designs. Our portfolio of materials provides reliable printability and outstanding electrical properties, with major time and cost benefits over traditional development processes.
Our breakthrough inks have uniquely compatible sintering and curing properties, enabled by precisely engineered nano-particle production and world-class ink formulation. This combination of a dielectric material — for mechanical structure, high-temperature resistance and electrical insulation — and a conductive metal material, solves many of the major challenges that have, until now, prevented adoption of 3D printed electronics. Our inks make it possible to quickly 3D print three-dimensional, high performance, low-cost conductive parts.

Our state-of-the-art AgCite™ family of nanoparticle silver inks boasts unparalleled conductivity for inkjet deposition. Our ink scientists have honed years of research and development to accurately control the size, morphology and dispersion of nanoparticles critical to formulating the best conductive inks available — by reliably extracting 10 -100+ nanometer-sized particles of pure silver. Exceptionally high ink performance optimizes conductivity, adhesion and mechanical properties, all of which are important for a wide range of applications, including RFID and OLED. The AgCite™ family of inks sinters at low temperatures and is suited to a broad range of substrates including paper, polymers, glass and ITO. With unparalleled conductivity, less ink is needed for the same application requirement, resulting in cost-savings. Check out our AgCite™ ink brochure to learn more.
Our suite of dielectric inks are engineered to meet the challenges faced by the electronics community. The advanced insulating properties of these inks are as important as the conductive properties of the silver inks. For optimal performance of electronic circuits, properties related to interference, adhesion, thermal dissipation and flammability are engineered into the inks.
