Revolutionary Transparent Conductive Film
NanoWeb® is a transparent conductor made of an invisible metal mesh that can be fabricated onto any glass or plastic surface. It offers a superior alternative to Indium Tin Oxide (ITO), Silver Nanowire (AgNW), graphene and carbon nanotube among other ITO-alternative technologies.
It has a nanostructured thin metal layer that is a two-dimensional mesh of continuous wires. The design of the mesh geometry allows for a highly conductive and transparent layer. Due to its high conductivity, it is able to operate using very little power while remaining clear and transparent. Its grid of highly conductive lines allows more energy to pass through an open area surface versus unpatterned conductive materials.
The metal mesh has been created from silver, aluminum, platinum, copper and nickel, but it can be done with almost any type of metals. The transparency depends only on geometrical design of the mesh and not the type of metal material. Sub-micron lines are designed to ensure there is no visibility to the human eye.
NanoWeb® has been developed using Rolling Mask Lithography (RML®). The RML process enables NanoWeb® to be produced for large products and devices, and films in roll-to-roll production.
INVISIBLE TO HUMAN EYE
NanoWeb® has achieved a higher level of transparency for conductive metal mesh compared to current technologies such as Indium Tin Oxide technologies (ITO).
NanoWeb® maintains high conductivity while maintaining high transparency and invisibility of lines.
FLEXIBLE AND DURABLE
NanoWeb® transparent conductor fabricated on flexible films allows for flexing, bending and folding without affecting performance.
NanoWeb® can be produced on a large scale, allowing the cost per unit to decrease as volume increases.
LARGE SURFACE AREAS
NanoWeb® can be produced to cover large areas of glass or in large rolls of film.
High conductivity allows NanoWeb® to operate with the low voltage power supplies currently available on transportation vehicles and planes, without the need for transformers, including small batteries.
EMI Shielding and Transparent Radio-Frequency Antennas
NanoWeb’s technology allows the fabrication of advanced EMI shields and transparent antennas for displays, windshields, and other products.
Improve the image quality, response time (sensitivity), and energy efficiency of touch screens. It is light-weight, thin, and flexible. It allows for bending and folding without affecting performance.
NanoWeb provides an transparent and invisible
heating layer energy for de-fogging.
Solar and Lighting
NanoWeb® provides a superior solution in OLED lighting and solar cell devices due to its high conductance and low cost of production.
NanoWeb® allows producers to integrate invisible to the eye ID or pattern to displays, windows, money, credit cards, packaging material.
Nanoweb can act as a resistive heater to generate heat on windows to remove ice. It can clear surfaces in all types of weather conditions.This technology works on goggles, glasses, visors, windscreens, windshields and any type of clear surface.
