Canatu launches new transparent conductive film for touch sensors at PE Europe
Canatu Oy, Finnish-based manufacturer of next generation transparent conductive films and touch sensors, has announced a new generation of high optical transmittance CNB (Carbon Nano Bud) transparent conductive films at the recently concluded Printed Electronics Europe trade show in Berlin.
Canatu’s Generation 6 CNB film is reported to boast significantly improved light transmittance. With zero haze, zero reflectance and high transmittance, CNB films are expected to have unrivalled optical performance and provide for high contrast displays with great outdoor readability. “High grade optics is an innate property of CNB Films. Gen 6 brings the optics to perfection, expanding the scope where our films can be applied,” affirms Dr Erkki Soininen, vice president marketing and sales at Canatu. “We see ourselves bridging technology and design as our films enable almost complete design freedom.”
Canatu’s Generation 6 CNB films have 95% optical transmittance at a sheet resistivity of 100Ω/square and 97% at 150Ω/square. With improved light transmittance vs resistivity characteristics, CNB films can now be used in a wide range of touch applications, including larger displays and single-layer touch devices with totally invisible patterns. Combining the optics with extreme flexibility and thinness, the company’s films are especially suited for wearable and flexible devices such as next-generation foldable smart phones and tablets.
