Why would you need conductive coatings?
In today’s technologically advanced world, the demand for high-performance electronic devices and components continues to grow. Conductive coatings play a crucial role in meeting these demands by providing enhanced electrical conductivity and other desirable properties to a wide range of materials. But why would you need conductive coatings?
One of the primary reasons for using conductive coatings is to impart electrical conductivity to non-conductive materials. Many substrates, such as plastic and glass are inherently non-conductive. By applying a conductive coating, these materials can be transformed into conductive surfaces, enabling the flow of electric current and facilitating the operation of electronic circuits and devices.
Another use for conductive coatings would be for EMI/RFI Shielding. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) can cause disruptions and malfunctions in electronic equipment.
Conductive coatings, particularly those with high shielding effectiveness, provide a protective barrier against EMI/RFI by redirecting electromagnetic waves. This shielding property ensures the proper functioning of sensitive electronic components in various industries, including automotive, aerospace, telecommunications, and medical.
The increasing demand for touchscreens, displays, and other transparent electronic interfaces has led to the development of transparent conductive coatings. These coatings combine conductivity with optical transparency, allowing for the seamless integration of touch functionality in various devices, including smartphones, tablets, and interactive displays.
The majority of these transparent conductive coatings (TCO) use Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) as it is both highly conductive and transparent and can be deposited with relative ease onto glass, plastic and other substrates.
