Liquid X™ is a technology company headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that manufactures functional metallic inks. Our well-known technology transforms various metals into ink form which is then deposited onto a wide variety of substrates. When heated at low temperatures, the ink converts to the base metal and exhibits comparable features.
Liquid X™ Technology
Liquid X™ allows customers to print metal traces and films that deliver the results comparable to the bulk metal. We have taken the market's highly demanded attributes and wrapped them into one product offering, providing better functionality through a more cost effective approach.
Liquid X™ inks are unique because, unlike other metallic conductive inks, our products contain actual metal atoms, not nanoparticles or metal flakes. The processing parameters of Liquid X™ metallic inks are attractive due to the low conversion temperatures and short processing times. The resulting films or traces exhibit desirable characteristics such as high conductivity, thin and precise features, and excellent adhesion. An advantage of the low temperature processing is the ability to use of a wide range of substrates from fibrous materials such as paper and gauze to flexible, organic material such as plastics. In addition, low viscosity provides the opportunity for the use of a variety of deposition methods such as inkjet, slot die, flexography, offset, and gravure.
