DO INK CONDUCT ELECTRICITY ...!
WHAT IS INK?
"whether Ink can conduct electricity?"
Yes there is special ink that can conduct electricity, which are used for various process . They named that as "conductive Ink".
WHAT IS THE CONDUCTIVE INK ?
conductive ink is an ink which results in printed object to conduct electricity.
These inks classed as fired high thick solids or PTF (POLYMER THICK FILMS).These ink usually contains powdered silver and carbon material. Hence polymeric conduction is known.
This allows circuit to draw or printed on variety of substrates materials like polyester and paper.
These ink are more economical now a days ,to lay down "conductive traces" comparing to traditional method of itching copper from copper plated substrates.
- silver ink is used in various field ,it is used in "RDFI" in transit tickets.
- It is used in repairing circuits on printed boards.
- They are used in windshield defroster.
- It is used on newer cars which provides as radio antenna.
Thus the conductive ink.may be in future is may plays a huge role in invention.
