General description

Silver flakes (Ag) are micro-sized flakes with a high aspect ratio. They can be used as conductive fillers that result in high conductive devices at low volumetric concentrations. Silver flakes are cost-efficient fillers compared with conventional nanowires and nanoparticles.

Application

Ag flakes can be used in the synthesis of nanoparticles, which can be used for a variety of applications such as electronics, optoelectronics, and flexible electronics.
