Clariant Acquires Nano-Silver Ink Technology from Bayer
Swiss specialty chemicals group Clariant International acquired the nano-silver ink technology platform developed under the trademark Bayink from Bayer (Germany). The transaction comprises all patents, know-how and materials related to Bayer's nano-silver ink technology. Clariant will continue to work closely with existing customers and cooperation partners to further develop nano-silver inks and its applications.
Nano silver inks are printable on various substrates like polymers, glas, or silicon. They are applicable in a wide variety of emerging applications for printed electronics, e.g., printed circuit boards, radio frequency identification devices (RFID) or photovoltaic panels. Nano-silver inks provide excellent conductivity by spending fewer amounts of precious metal using advanced printing technologies such as ink-jet or aerosol printing.
