How CondAlign’s technology can fit your application
CondAlign’s patented technology for producing conductive films with anisotropic properties has several advantages that are beneficial for novel products and applications.
The CondAlign technology is a material independent technology. This means several matrix materials like epoxy, silicone, polyurethane, acrylics and combinations of these can be used. For many conventional technologies used in anisotropic film materials, there are constraints regarding which materials to use as well as how to process it.
As an example; traditional ACFs are made of epoxy and need heat and pressure during the bonding process. Our anisotropic conductive and adhesive films do neither require heat nor extensive pressure to be applied. This simplifies the entire process, and time and money is saved.
The freedom to choose from a broad range of compatible materials allow you to design films with specific, targeted properties. You can realize anisotropic conductive films with the characteristics you like, e.g. soft or hard, transparent or not, adhesive or not, stretchable.
Efficient Particle Utilization
Due to the extremely efficient usage of conductive particles in our technology, there can be considerable cost savings. Another important result from reduced particle loading is the retention of the materials’ initial properties, since the potential negative influence of high particle loading on the material properties is omitted.
We can achieve electric conductivity with particle loadings far below the percolation threshold, and in this way accomplish conductive films with superior mechanical and optical properties like adhesiveness, softness and transparency.
The technology is well suited for roll-to-roll production. This opens for cost effective and flexible manufacturing.
Together, the factors above make this an enabling technology, allowing you to develop novel products and designs not possible with traditional materials.
