Transparent touch sensors with PolyTC® open up wide fields of application

Fuerth, Germany: PolyTC®, the new, transparent conductive films from PolyIC, enable a multitude of new applications for touch sensor solutions to be developed. The shift away from mechanical keys and switches and towards capacitive touch sensors can be seen throughout the electronics and automotive sector. PolyTC® films can be used to manufacture very thin, flexible, transparent touch sensors which can be easily integrated into many applications and can be controlled using conventional electronic components. Just some examples are on and off buttons, slide controls and dials. PolyTC® consists of high-resolution conductor structures which can be customized and manufactured in high volumes and at low cost using roll-to-roll processes. Consequently, PolyTC® provides an ideal replacement for flexible conductor plates in touch sensor applications or for indium tin oxide (ITO) layers in touch screens.

PolyIC will be exhibiting at the imid 2011 in Seoul, Korea

The International Meeting on Information Display, the imid 2011, celebrates its 11th anniversary this year. The entire event will last from the 11th to the 15th October whilst the actual exhibition takes place from the 12th to the 14th October. Once again, imid is being organized by the organization KIDS (Korean Information Display Society), SID (Society for Information Display),
DS (DisplaySearch) and KDIA (Korea Display Industry Association).

PolyIC will be participating in the joint booth in the German pavilion (booth number 4049 in hall 1).

Visitors to the PolyIC booth can look forward to a wealth of innovations in the field of printed electronics. The transparent and capacitive keys and controls described above are just one of the new developments from the PolyTC® product range.
