Insulectro Leverages One Source Distribution for Printed Electronic Materials at IDTechEx Show


Reading time ( words)

Insulectro will exhibit in booth H25 at IDTechEx’s Printed Electronics World 2018 conference held this week, November 14-15, in Santa Clara, California at the Convention Center.

Insulectro Printed Electronics offers advanced materials from such leading suppliers such as DuPont, Chromaline, Coveme, and Kodak to sell conductive inks, substrates, and consumables.

Insulectro distributes key DuPont polymer thick film paste products to U.S. customers in the thin film photovoltaic, wearables, capacitive switch, touch screen, RFID smart card, heating and membrane touch switch markets. In addition, Insulectro Printed Electronics distributes carbon conductors and UV dielectrics on behalf of DuPont.

“We are excited to showcase our products at Printed Electronics World. We are a one-source supplier for PE manufacturers with our complete offerings of essential and cutting edge materials. With 11 stocking locations throughout North America, we are where our customers are.

“We developed a strong sales and service model on Insulectro’s PCB-side of our business over a long period of years. That wealth of knowledge transfers readily to printed electronics. Now, Insulectro’s Printed Electronics Division is making a difference in that industry,” said Kevin Miller, vice president of sales for Insulectro Printed Electronics, commented.

Recently, Insulectro was named distributor for DuPont’s Tedlar protective film and its in-mold inks.

“In-mold conductive inks are a perfect union of form and function. The technology combines an innovative, more stretchable material with dramatic advancements in electronic ink to give interface designers new creative freedom, without any compromise in meeting functional switching needs,” Miller continued. “And because these new electronic inks work with existing in-mold decorative processes, there’s no need for costly re-tooling. Fabricators can create products with greater eye appeal, simplicity, and performance—all at the same time.”

In addition to the inks, Insulectro will be displaying some exceptional substrates from such manufacturers as Coveme. Their film insert moulding (FIM) is a cost-effective process to produce a plastic part using a 3 steps process. Coveme’s technology introduces in the market a new solution based on a high deep thermoforming bi-oriented polyester film with special coating on both sides that enhances printability, scratch resistance and formability.

Plus, Coveme’s Kemafoil KTF HC and HCH is clear Bi-oriented thermoformable polyester film, treated one or two sides. KTF HC is treated outside with a dual cure coating with abrasion and scratch resistance (after UV curing).

“DuPont is the predominant manufacturer of silver, copper, carbon, and dielectric inks. Insulectro’s got them all. Whether your application is membrane touch switches or printable heaters, there is an advanced material for your needs. And, in the wearables market, stretchable inks are rewriting the electronics gamebook. In our booth, you’ll see real examples of cutting-edge technologies just about to hit the commercial market. We have a very robust line card for both inks and substrates,” Miller stated.

“There’s lots of excitement this year for Insulectro Printed Electronics. Stop by our booth, H25, at IDTechEX’s Printed Electronics World 2018 and let’s get acquainted. Wherever you are manufacturing printed electronics – Minneapolis, Chicago, Dallas, Silicon Valley, Southern California, Denver, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Northwest, Northeast or Mid-Atlantic – we are there to service you,” he concluded.
