Key features of transparent electrode grade
It might be inconspicuous,
but it properly conducts electricity.
As the conductive polymer named PEDOT:PSS has low absorption characteristics in the visible light region and is usable in the form of a thin film, it provides a highly transparent conductive film.
The coating's surface resistivity can be 102 to 103Ω/sq, leading to high conductivity.
Simple and Low Temperature Process
Entering the age of printable electronics
Conductive coatings can be formed using general-purpose printing devices and coating devices without the need to introduce a special sputtering device. Screen printing, which is drawing attention in the field of printable electronics, allows low-cost, easy patterning.
Coating is carried out using general-purpose coating equipment such as gravure coaters, die coaters, and slit coaters. As the coating is processed at low temperatures between 80°C and 130°C, resins with low heat resistance can be used in this process.

Processability and Flexibility
Remove restriction in designing sensors
The base of Denatron is a conductive polymer.
Thanks to its excellent processability, Denatron can be used even on curved surfaces, which can easily cause cracks if inorganic substances such as ITO are used.
In addition, with its flexibility to stretch, Denatron can be shaped after film formation, to create 3D switches. When applied on fibers, it can also be used in the form of conductive fibers by leveraging the conductive polymer’s flexibility. Through our formulation techniques, wash resistance and other properties can be added.
A bridge gently connecting your body with terminal devices
PEDOT:PSS is a safe substance with its hydrophilicity and biocompatibility. As it causes no metal allergies, it is suitable for use in biosensors that have contact directly with the human body.
Preventing Patterning from Being Visible
Even the slightest irregularity must not remain,
to create beautiful displays.
Patterning is essential for touch panel sensors. Although the electrodes are transparent, they become visible due to the difference in refractive indices between the electrodes and substrate or subtle coloring. Conventional etching systems shave off films. However, Denatron Etch deactivates only conductivity, which allows the prevention of the visibility of patterning in order to beautifully finish displays.
