Patterning and Printing

Multek’s high technology roll-to-roll patterning process provides customized solutions for projective capacitive touch sensors, flexible displays, and flexible solar cell applications. Complementing the Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) patterning, Multek can also screen print additional circuitry features such as silver ink traces, carbon connection pads, and insulating overcoats. Standard roll widths for patterned ITO are 330mm (13”) and 435mm (17.125”). 

Sheldahl® brand ITO films can be patterned with ITO features sizes as small as 50 µm. Spaces between ITO features can be as small as 35 µm. 

Multek can also pattern customer supplied ITO, Indium Zinc Oxide (IZO) and Aluminum Zinc Oxide (AZO) coated films. 

Patterned ITO films can be screen printed with one or more layers of conductive or dielectric inks. Silver ink can be printed down to 100 µm pitch.
