NovaCentrix (www.novacentrix.com) announces the availability of Metalon ICI-020, a copper-based screen ink the company says is based on the same functional principles as its Metalon ICI-003 inkjet ink. Copper oxide particles are formulated with a reduction agent. After the ink is printed, a NovaCentrix PulseForge tool is used to modulate a reduction reaction, thereby converting the copper oxide into a thin film of highly conductive copper. According to NovaCentrix, this process is performed in ambient air on low-temperature substrates at speeds exceeding 328 ft/min (100 m/min).
