General description

Silver is a good conductor and resistant to oxidation. It is used in printed conductors and printable inks (based on silver nanoparticles). Nanosilver is used as an antibacterial material in filters for air and water purification, in textiles, and for wound treatment. Other large scale applications of nanosilver include metallization of solar cells, thin film electronics, sensors, and catalysts.

Curing Temperature: Above 400 °C

Recommended substrates: ITO, Glass, Etc.

Recommended washing solvent: Polar Solvents: Ethyl Alcohol, IPA etc.
