Collage Printed Polymer with Functionalities

Printed Polymer

Printed Electronics Using Polymer Pastes

An Alternative to Assembly

Reducing the overall height and size of an assembly requires increased integration of functionalities into the printed circuit board. Based on conductive polymers, flat components such as robust contact areas, intelligent connection systems or complex resistors can be realized on the inner and outer layers.

Printed polymer technology can be used to realize the following components and applications:

  • Keyboards
  • Switches 
  • Resistors

The latter can be placed on the inner and outer layers. The possible applications range from pull-up/pull-down resistors to voltage dividers, potentiometers, pulse resistors and heaters.

This technology is used in the automotive, medical, building, household and security technology sectors as well as in commercial vehicles.
