- superior printing stability – over 1 month of continuous work with repeatable results, and without clogging of the nozzles, even with the smallest 1 pL cartridges available for Dimatix DMP-2850 Printer
- high electrical conductivity – over 40 % of bulk Ag conductivity
- compatibility with various substrates – performance demonstrated e.g. on PET, PEN, PEI, glass substrates

“We are really excited with the high jetting stability and the non-clogging capabilities of XTPL Ag Nanoink IJ36. Printing with your ink formulation is easy and results in stable and well-defined printed features. We are also satisfied with the excellent wettability on PEN substrates. The performance in terms of electrical conductivity of the printed structures is very good and in line with what we expected.”

“We were impressed with the height of the structures we could achieve with XTPL Ag Nanoink IJ36 after already a single pass printing (even 200 nm high). Importantly, the jetting of the inkjet ink from XTPL is efficient with both 10 pL and 1 pL Dimatix cartridges, so we are now able to obtain high quality patterns of higher resolution with inkjet. With an ink like that, we can concentrate on research, and not on the problems arising around printing itself.”

“Within the EnerScale project, ZOEK gGmbH is collaborating with XTPL S.A. to bring XTPL’s Ag Nanoink IJ36 as an electrode into thin film solar cells, especially Perovskite solar cells. ZOEK gGmbH uses the equipment at COPT Center to print IJ36 by means of inkjet technology on top of organic layers as well as on ultra-thin glass and PEN foil. In general, IJ36 is easy to print and allows for high-resolution features with sharp edges, especially on ultra-thin glass. Finally, laser sintering is used to unfold the high conductivity of the silver layer. This would allow for large area and cost efficient roll-to-roll printed solar cells without the need of expensive vacuum processes.”
