Carbon Nanotubes

While ITO (Indium Tin Oxide ) has long satisfied the needs of the PCAP and transparent electrodes markets, the next generation of devices is more demanding. End users continue to demand improvements in device form factor, physical adaptability, performance, and price. To satisfy these requirements, a new material is required that is not only transparent and conductive, but also flexible, formable and more cost-effective to design and manufacture. CHASM's AgeNT TCF platform is leading this charge.

  • AgeNT - 1

    Featuring our lowest available sheet resistance, AgeNT-1 is the optimal formulation when current carrying capacity is the critical design factor.  AgeNT-1 is the only formulation based on a metal mesh (MM) substrate within CHASM's carbon nanotube (CNT) hybrid based printed electronics platform covering a range of formulations that balance transparency and conductivity for a wide range of applications. Only AgeNT-1 enables engineers or product designers to innovate transparent DAS, IoT, or NFC antennas that unobtrusively disappear into architectural elements like overhead lights, windows, or glazed artwork, putting more antennas closer to points of use to increase signal strength and data speeds.  

    Specifications:

    Sheet Resistance: <1 Ω/□

    VLT: 94%  |  Total VLT: 87% 

    Haze: 2.1%  |  Total Haze: 3.7%

    Substrate: 4 mil PET

    Applications:

    Printable, Flexible, Transparent Antennas: DAS, IoT, NFC

    Antennas without the design boundaries! Place transparent antennas on windows, walls, IoT devices and more. 

  • AgeNT - 10

    The most conductive model utilizing a silver nanowire (AgNW) substrate, the AgeNT 10 formulation rounds out CHASM's carbon nanotube (CNT) hybrid based printed electronics platform covering a range of formulations that balance transparency and conductivity for a wide range of applications. AgeNT-10 is the only commercially available transparent conductor capable of producing a heat source sufficient to control ice, snow, and condensation without wires.  Transparently heat windshields and headlights for not only defrosting or defogging but also to clear ice or frost build-up in inclement weather to ensure collision avoidance and safety systems using optical cameras remain operational. AgeNT-10 has demonstrated up to 3,000 watts/M2 and up to 120 degrees Celsius continuous operation in commercial automotive applications. 

    Specifications:

    Sheet Resistance: 10 Ω/□

    VLT: 90.9%  |  Total VLT: 83% 

    Haze: 3.3%  |  Total Haze: 3.7%

    Substrate: 7 mil PC

    Compatible with LIDAR and optical cameras

    Applications:

    Printable, Flexible, Transparent Heaters for Automotive Applications: heated windshield, headlights, rear windshields

    Security camera for trains, buses

    Transparent heaters for avionics

    Any application requiring a transparent, flexible heater

  • AgeNT - 30

    Suitable for a variety of applications, AgeNT-30 is a versatile formulation within CHASM's carbon nanotube (CNT) Hybrid printed electronics platform covering a range of formulations that balance transparency and conductivity for a wide range of applications.   Consistent resistivity even at dimensions suitable for large format displays, AgeNT-30 still delivers the transparency required to not detract from advertising, point of sale, or gaming applications. 

    Specifications:

    Sheet Resistance: 30 Ω/□

    VLT: 95.8%  |  Total VLT: 87.8% 

    Haze: 1% |  Total Haze: 2%

    Substrate: 5 mil PET (also available on 7 mil PC. Note specifications on TDS)

    Applications:

    Large Format Touch Screens & Smart Surfaces: kiosks, whiteboards, outdoor advertising | Heaters for Automotive Applications requiring high VLT

  • AgeNT - 75

    Virtually invisible, AgeNT-75 offers industry-leading transparency for your most demanding touch sensor, touch screen, or display applications.  AgeNT-75 is the highest transparency formulation of CHASM's carbon nanotube (CNT) Hybrid printed electronics platform covering a range of formulations that balance transparency and conductivity for a wide range of applications.  Using AgeNT-75, engineers and product designers are free to implement interactive touch user interfaces on any surface including sculpted smart surfaces or on flexible/foldable displays. 

    Specifications:

    Sheet Resistance: 75 Ω/□

    VLT: 98%  |  Total VLT: 89.9% 

    Haze: 0.2%  |  Total Haze: 1.4%

    Substrate: 5 mil PET
