Printed Electronics from ELANTAS Europe – More than just an ink supplier

Who we are:

We are a young team of chemists, printing and media technology experts and laboratory technicians with various qualifications and further trainings. We combine the knowhow and the perspectives of chemistry, printing technology and electronics. This is why we’re more than just an ink supplier. For more than 10 years we’ve been on the market in the „printed electronics” market segment.

What we do:

We develop and manufacture functional pastes, such as silver or carbon inks, as well as insulators and printable dielectrics for screen printing. These can be solvent-based or UV-curable. We place great emphasis on maximum user friendliness, such as good runability and simple handling. At the same time, we strive to optimize the cost-benefit ratio in the area of the raw materials used and the pigmentation of the ink systems.

How do we do this?

We use the most modern production facilities, e.g., a water-cooled three roller mill and a high-performance dissolver, with which we can also produce large batches, for the manufacture of our printing pastes. Each batch that we produce is controlled internally for runnability on our own screen-printing machinery. The layer thickness and the conductivity are also measured and documented for sure. With our printing machine, we can also investigate the suitability of different substrates. In addition, we can use our extensive database with well-known substrates. This saves time and money for our customers, as it allows a preselection of the proper ink for the respective customer’s substrate in advance and eliminates the need for the customer to determine this in production operation.
