The Silver Nanowire Coating Ink is a formulated ready-to-use water-based ink for creating high
optical quality transparent conductive layers. The ready-to-use ink contains silver nanowires
(~30nm), adhesives and other additives for providing both high conductivity of the formed film and
strong adhesion to the substrates. It can be used for a variety of substrates including glass, PET,
PMMA, PC, PI, PEI, etc.

Sheet resistance of formed film: 50-100ohm/square
Transparency of formed film: >99%
Haze: <1%
Curing temperature: ~110 C for 5 min
Viscosity: 2~50cps
Coating and printing methods: roll-to-roll coating, spinning coating, slot die coating, screening
printing, inkjet printing, etc.
Suggested coating thickness: 15 to 20 microns
Storage: 15 to 25 degree Celsius

Shake well before use. No sonication.
