Kodak and Heraeus co-developed a cost-effective ITO alternative

Kodak and Heraeus have developed a new easily-patterend transparent conductive film that can be used as a cost-effective alternative to ITO in touch displays. The two companies unveiled a 14" touch LCD prototype that was was fabricated using Kodak HCF-225 Film/ESTAR base and the Clevios PEDOT:PSS coating with a surface resistivity of 225 ohms/sq. It was fabricated using conventional printing processes, including UV-cured and heat processed inks.

According to the companies, the polymer-based touch screen system provides superior touch performance, flexibility, stability, a high level of transparency, neutral color and low haze all at an economic price
