Nissha and C3Nano Succeed in Joint Development of Next Generation Silver Nanowire Transparent Inks, Powered by C3Nano’s Activegrid™ for Smarter, Flexible Touch-Sensor Displays
Hayward, Calif., — May 8, 2015 — C3Nano Inc., the performance leader in transparent conductive films (TCFs) and inks for the touch sensor and display industry, announced today that Nissha Printing Co., Ltd. and C3Nano have succeeded in the joint development of next generation silver nanowire (AgNW) transparent inks powered by C3Nano’s Activegrid technology. The deal will meet fast-evolving consumer demand for smarter, flexible phones, tablets and large panel displays.
Nissha cited Activegrid’s outstanding overall performance including low haze, superior transparency and high conductivity in its selection criteria. Under the terms of the agreement, the two companies are developing and testing technologies to ensure environmental durability of silver nanowire based transparent inks. The joint development agreement represents an important industry milestone as consumer electronics manufacturers look for new solutions suitable for large panel, curved and flexible displays.
C3Nano will showcase Activegrid at the upcoming SID Display Week show at the San Jose Convention Center, taking place June 2rd through 4th in booth 1420.
“Activegrid enables the development of thinner, lighter, fully flexible, devices with advanced sensing functions,” said Mr. Daisuke Inoue, executive vice president of Nissha. “Activegrid provides the design freedom to deliver flexible displays for smart phones, tablets and touch screens that will ultimately create a superior consumer experience.”
“Nissha is widely considered the preeminent supplier of touch sensors for the industry,” said Cliff Morris, CEO for C3Nano.” Being selected as a development partner by the industry front runner validates C3Nano’s position as a performance leader in TCFs.”
This announcement follows C3Nano’s acquisition of Asia’s largest synthesizer and producer of AgNWs, Aiden Co. LTD. Korea. The partnership with Nissha further establishes C3Nano’s position as a leading solution provider of premium, TCFs for the flexible display, touch sensor, photovoltaic and organic light-emitting diode (OLED) industries.
