C3Nano Scales Up Display Material Manufacturing with New Facility
US Facility Increases ActiveGrid™ Ink Manufacturing Capacity by Up to 10X
HAYWARD, CA – June 11, 2019 – C3Nano Inc., the world’s performance leader in silver nanowire-based transparent conductive inks and films used in flexible displays, touchscreens and other products, today announced that it has significantly increased its manufacturing capacity with the opening of a new facility in Hayward, California. C3Nano experienced 250 percent year-over-year growth in Q1 of this year and forecasts even greater growth in the near future, and this new facility increases the company’s manufacturing capacity tenfold.
The new 6,500 square-foot facility will house synthesis reactors, purification equipment, ink blending reactors and quality control instruments and will enable C3Nano to ship 140,000 kg of its ActiveGrid™ ink per year – enough to coat 9.8 million square meters of display film. This capacity will be needed to satisfy skyrocketing demand for highly interactive flexible displays in smartphones, tablets, wearables, and other devices.
“The device market is moving rapidly toward flexible and highly interactive displays, and silver nanowire-based inks and film are the preferred materials for these displays,” said Cliff Morris, CEO of C3Nano. “As the performance leader in silver nanowire-based inks and films, we are scaling up manufacturing to meet high demand for our products in Asia and around the world.”
