June 15, 2007 — Conductive Compounds Inc. (CCI), a worldwide provider of conductive and resistive inks, coatings and adhesives, today announced two silver chloride (AgCl) inks for medical diagnostic sensor applications.
The conductive inks are specifically designed for use on defibrillator pads, as well as disposable EEG and EKG sensors. The two products, AGCL-510 and AGCL-675C, are optimized for gravure/flexographic and screen printing and can also be used in pad printing.
The inks have excellent adhesion to polyester, polyimide, polycarbonate, vinyl, urethane and other plastic substrates, as well as silver filled printed ink traces and have excellent crease resistance and surface hardness.
The AGCL-675C product is designed to optimize the electrode surface contact area for applications such as defibrillator pads by providing a rough, textured surface after drying.
Both inks can be custom blended in order to adjust resistance values to achieve the required level of electrical conductivity and to adjust the level of chloride to silver.
