Two Technology Patents Issued to C3Nano, Inc.
Hayward, CA – C3Nano Inc., the performance leader in transparent conductive films and inks for the touch sensor and display industry, today announced the issuance of two patents by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
US Patent 9,150,746 titled “Metal Nanowire Inks for The Formation of Transparent Conductive Films with Fused Nano Networks” was issued on October 6, 2015.
U.S. Patent 9,183,968 also titled “Metal Nanowire Inks for the Formation of Transparent Conductive Films with Fused Nano Networks” was issued on November 10, 2015.
The patents cover the use of the C3Nano’s proprietary NanoGlue™ and its transparent conductive ActiveGrid™ ink and films. The use of ActiveGrid™ inks incorporate C3Nano’s proprietary NanoGlue™ chemistries which form a single nano-structured grid engendering the highest performing solution-based transparent conductive film.
According to Dr. Ajay Virkar, CTO and co-founder of C3Nano, “The issuance of these fundamental patents distinguishes our unique technology and reinforces C3nano’s commercial efforts in the $1.2 billion dollar transparent conductive film market.”
The announcement was made on the eve of the Printed Electronics 2015 Conference, the world’s largest conference and exhibition for printed electronics, taking place November 18-19 in Santa Clara, CA where Dr. Virkar will present ‘An Overview of Activegrid™ High Performance Transparent Conductors.’
Dr. Virkar will also present at the Material Research Society 2015 Fall Meeting: Symposium on Stretchable and Active Polymers and Composites for Electronics and Medicine, taking place November 29 – December 4, 2015 in Boston, MA. Virkar, an invited presenter, will discuss Materials for Flexible Technologies, describing various nanotechnologies and materials C3Nano has developed to enable flexible electronics with attention given to structure property relationships, as well as the adoption of new materials for flexible electronics and its key relationships and partnerships across the consumer electronics supply chain.
About C3Nano, Inc.
Founded in 2010 as a spinout from Professor Zhenan Bao’s chemical engineering laboratory at Stanford University, C3Nano is the developer of the solution-based, transparent conductive inks and films as direct replacements for indium tin oxide (ITO). C3Nano has raised more than $20 million in funding to date, which has enabled the company to quickly achieve ‘best in class’ ink formulations and expanded production capabilities.
