Intrinsiq Materials has both in-house development and production tools for nanomaterials, material modifications, material treatment, and ink formulations. Our proprietary nanoparticle generation process is capable of producing controlled particle sizes. Particles can be smaller than 10 nm. Our particle coating and methodology produces stable and non-agglomerating nanomaterials. The resulting fine, non-agglomerating powder will readily disperse in ink formulations. It contains a coating that protects it from oxidation which would otherwise negatively affect the electronic performance.
Our inkjet and screen paste formulation expertise provides our customers with the appropriate particle sizing, shape, metal load and solvent composition for their needs.
Our current manufacturing capability is one ton of ink/year operating on a single shift, allowing a list price of less than 65% of comparable silver product. Volumes will more than double with the expansion of production capability in Rochester, NY. Capital expansion is paid for by the state of New York.
The Intrinsiq Difference
Intrinsiq has our own in-house production of stable nano metal powders and inks formulations. Most importantly, we have invented a process that overcomes the inherent instability of Cu nano particles. This ability to produce protected metal particles is essential in the production of stable ink formulations, and also allows the materials to be readily dispersed in solvents, resins, etc.
