3M announces the launch of a new touch sensor film, 3M™ Patterned Silver Nanowire Film.
The 3M™ Patterned Silver Nanowire consists of conductors made of Cambrios’ silver nanowire ink which is micropatterned by 3M on a polyester (PET) film substrate. The material offers a target transmittance of greater than 89 percent and exhibits good optical clarity and low haze.
The film can support touch screens with diagonal sizes suitable for phones and tablets, as well as large area touch screens over 46” (diagonal) for applications such as signage and gaming. Unlike ITO products, the flexible silver nanowire material can conform to angles and rounded surfaces, enabling curved, and rollable touch sensors.
