Engineered Materials Systems receives IDTechEx award for printed electronics technology

Jan 25, 2016

Nagase America is pleased to announce that Engineered Materials Systems, Inc. (EMS), a Nagase Group company, received the IDTechEx Best Commercialization Award for its achievement in printed electronics technologies at Printed Electronics USA 2015. The award was for the use of EMS’s stretchable conductive ink in Mimo, a wearable smart baby monitor manufactured by Rest Devices. Entries were judged by a panel of three industry experts.

“Mimo is a very innovative product, and we are honored to be recognized for our efforts in helping our customer solve a technical challenge and commercialize a new product,” said Todd Irion, president of EMS. “We are committed to partnering with customers to define and develop customized solutions.”

Rest Devices approached EMS with the need for a soft, stretchable conductive ink that was also very durable. The solution was CI-1036, a silver conductive ink with superior durability and adhesion to fabrics, in combination with a proprietary film and top coat. The combination enabled Mimo to withstand 90 wash/dry cycles, achieving Rest Device’s durability goal.

EMS manufactures a full product line of inks for use in wearable applications. CI-2051 is a stretchable carbon ink that can be used in creating stretchable capacitors. CI-4040 is a stretchable silver/silver chloride ink used in creating various biosensors. Any conductive traces can be protected with a layer of DI-7540 UV-cure dielectric ink.
