Specifications and Features Carbon Ink

Carbon ink is one of the most adaptable and common materials in printed and plastic electronics. This is because carbon itself may take on various forms, each of which has unique physical characteristics. Among others, carbon can be found in its most prevalent forms in graphite, diamond, carbon black, activated carbons, graphene, and carbon nanotubes. Different types of carbon used to make ink each have unique and varied qualities that are influenced by the type of carbon used to make the ink.

Because of its lubricious nature, the ink has excellent thermal stability and low friction. Additionally, they have a low reactivity to solvents and other compounds and are chemically inert. Our carbon conductive ink has exceptional adherence to glass, Kapton, Mylar, and many other substrates, and they may be applied by screen printing, dipping, and syringe dispensing. The ink is highly resistant to abrasion, scratching, flexing, and creasing in contrast to traditional conductive materials. Carbon conductive ink must be functionalized to function as gas sensors or biological sensors with good selectivity. Amorphous carbon, the base material for carbon black ink, can be an excellent electrical conductor but has poor thermal conductivity. On the other hand, activated carbons have high surface areas and produce carbon ink suitable for electrodes in electrochemical cells, including batteries, supercapacitors, and electrochemical sensors.

Our product is an aqueous paste of fine carbon particle formulation makes it appropriate for high-resolution printing and deposition, producing consistent, smooth, and high-quality films. The produced films offer outstanding mechanical characteristics, flexibility, and moisture and humidity resistance. Heating between room temperature and 150°C is used to cure.

Applications of Carbon Ink

It is ideal for printing on flexible surfaces like paper, textiles, polymer films, and many more. It is beneficial for manufacturing conductive tracks, capacitive sensors, antennas, electromagnetic shielding coatings, photovoltaic coatings, and wearable electronics components.

The product is helpful for Biomedical sensors, membrane touch switches, aerospace, printed heaters, automotive, electrodes, printed resistors, keyboards, thin-film photovoltaics, and perovskite solar cells. The product explores usage in wearable technology that is stretchy and washable, as well as encapsulants and adhesives.

How to Use Carbon Ink

  • The operator should wear gloves.
  • The apparatus must be clean, and the surface must be free of dust, waste, and other material.
  • It must be prepared uniformly before using it, with a viscometer used to detect viscosity within the specified range, and the ink must be closed promptly after usage.
  • Before printing, all surfaces must be cleaned of plate oil, oxide, and other contaminants. QA must validate all carbon plates before going into full production.
  • It can be applied by screen, stencil, or inkjet printing.
  • It can be used with polyester and stainless-steel mesh, with various mesh sizes.

Safety Measures

When exposed to excessive water, the ink may smudge or spill on certain paper types. For optimal results, use absorbent paper and let it cure for 24 hours before introducing it to water.

This ink includes pigment particles that, if allowed to dry within a pen, can cause blockage. When using the product, we recommend cleaning your equipment/pens every 4 to 6 weeks or if you are not going to use it for a week or more.
