Toray develops new transparent conductive material


TOKYO, JAPAN: Toray Advanced Film Co Ltd announced it has succeeded in developing a silver nano-wire based transparent conductive film with the world’s best transparency and conductivity - light transmittance of 90 per cent or above and surface resistivity, which is a measure of conductivity, between 150 and 250 Ω/sq- using wet coating method. The material also boasts superior flexibility, natural coloration, durability and workability and the company expects to begin its mass production in the near future.


The company recently entered into a strategic partnership with Cambrios Technologies Corporation, a US-based electronic materials manufacturer, to develop a new product that addresses the above issues by bringing together high transparency, high conductivity nanowire ink technology of Cambrios with the company’s superior film processing technology.


Going forward, Toray hopes the film would eventually be used in 3-D touch panels, solar cells and organic EL electrodes. The company intends to further grow its touch panel-related business centered on business expansion of transparent conductive materials widely used in smart phones and tablet PCs.
