By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology & Science -- 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, eliminating many design constraints and enabling next-generation curved, and rollable touch sensors.
"3M's Silver Nanowire Film leverages best-in-class capabilities of two global leaders in the touch sensor space," says Voyl Divljakovic, vice president and general manager, 3M Electronic Solutions Division. "The combination of 3M's expertise in optical films and Cambrios's technology in silver nanowire inks are combining to create a product that will enable new design possibilities, such as curved or wrapped bezel displays, for our customers."
