Advanced thick film paste formulations designed to improve thermoformability, conductivity and fine line performance

WILMINGTON, Del. November 8. 2021 - DuPont (NYSE:DD) will demonstrate an advanced suite of silver bearing thick film paste conductors to enable In-Mold Electronic devices at Automotive Interiors Expo 2021, November 9 -11 in Stuttgart, Germany.

The new conductors ME102, ME604 and ME614, have key advancements to improve thermoformability, conductivity and fine line performance. These offerings enable high productivity, improved mechanical and electrical properties allowing extended freedom in the electronic design of In-Mold Electronics devices. These devices include next generation LiDAR systems for autonomous driving or touch steering wheels with transparent 3D shaped surfaces for enhanced user experience.

Key advancements of the new ME range include: ME102 as a highly conductive thick film conductive paste for antennae, heater and RFID functions ME604 as a general-purpose thick film conductive paste with improved thermoformability and conductivity ME614 thick film conductive paste with added laser ablation property for very fine line applications

This innovative new offering demonstrates a range of superior technical properties to meet different customer requirements. We are excited to introduce the ME product range to the market globally and expect a positive impact in accelerating the wider adoption of the emerging In-Mold Electronics technology, said Peter Weigand, Global Automotive Segment Manager, DuPont Microcircuit Materials.

Laird® Tex Sense™ Teams with DuPont® Intexar™

Also at the show, Laird Performance Materials, a DuPont business, will work with DuPont to showcase Laird's new Tex Sense hands on/off detection sensor. Tex Sense is designed specifically for application on steering wheels. The extremely flexible, lightweight, and durable fabric offers reliability to manufacturers who also benefit from Tex Sense's easier wrapping and stretching over the steering wheel during the mounting process. Used with Tex Sense, DuPont Intexar electronic ink film delivers even heating distribution. Intexar is laminated directly onto the Tex Sense multilayer stack up of conductive fabric and dielectric foam, creating a ready-to-use capacitance sensor with a heating option.
