Sun Chemical Joins the CPEIA
Sun Chemical is now a member of the Canadian Printable Electronics Industry Association.
“Sun Chemical has become a leading provider of advanced materials for printable and flexible electronics applications and is uniquely positioned to work with other CPEIA members to tailor individualized solutions, and bring new ideas and the latest technology to market. This is a huge validation for both Canadian industry and the CPEIA as significant global players,” says Peter Kallai, president and CEO of the CPEIA.
The company is a renowned manufacturer of nanosilver inks designed for use with inkjet and aerosol jet systems in the development of printed antenna and sensors. As a provider of functional and graphic inks for in-mold electronics (IME), Sun Chemical delivers the full IME stack from conductors to colors. By integrating printed electronics and conventional components into molded structures, IME delivers electronic functionality to the molded part as well as lighter weight, less expensive manufacturing and greater durability.
In addition, Sun Chemical manufactures conductive inks, resists, dielectrics and insulators for membrane touch switches, sensors, displays, touch panels, printed antenna and solid state lighting. Sun Chemical also offers a portfolio of conductive inks specially designed for flexo printing to support growing printed electronics applications for the smart packaging and label sectors. With its acquisition of Gwent Electronic Materials Ltd. in 2016, Sun Chemical further strengthens its printable electronics offering with tailor-made conductive inks and pastes for biomedical sensors, electroluminescent materials, Cermet pastes for oxygen sensors, piezo and hybrid microcircuits as well as novel materials for printed circuits.
“Canada’s support of new technologies, such as printed electronics, makes it an attractive place for Sun Chemical to invest in R&D,” says Rudi Lenz, president and CEO of Sun Chemical. “Given the potential of printed electronics and the current business Sun enjoys in Canada, support of the Canadian Printable Electronics Industry Association made good sense.”
