Siloxane polymers

    Inkron is a leading company in siloxane polymer R&D and manufacturing. Inkron has extensive IPR related to siloxane polymer technology and its applications.

    Inkron has strong in-house knowledge of the synthesis of silane precursors, catalysts and polymers covering both the hydrolytic and anhydrous process. With all building blocks of the final polymer at its disposal Inkron can provide customers with novel siloxane-based solutions with precisely tuned properties. Inkron can freely modify many of the critical material properties including:

    • Curing method: UV/thermal
    • Curing temperature in case of thermally curable materials
    • Optical properties such as Refractive Index and transmittance
    • Molecular weight
    • Dielectric properties and more

    Siloxane polymers and their modifications can be used in a range of applications including dielectric and encapsulation layers, AR materials and as a binder with high thermal stability.

    Formulation, coupling-technologies and additives

    Inkron’s end products such as electrically conductive screen printable inks and thermally and electrically conductive Die Attach Pastes are good examples of how the in-house technologies are combined together to create new products with fully compatible components.

    In addition to its expertise in polymer and particle production Inkron has developed coupling technologies to ensure the seamless integration of the product components and particle wetting and alike. As the binder polymer and its properties are thoroughly known, it is possible to functionalize the filler particles in order to achieve the required compatibility; alternatively the required coupling agents may be added to the polymer to obtain the same results.

    The understanding of the polymers and fillers used makes it possible to select the best additives for the formulations according to need.

    As the development of new products is proceeding continuously, Inkron is adding new formulations to the existing library of products.

    Nanoparticles and dispersions

    tech-molecInkron’s technologies for nano- and micron-size metal and metal oxide particle manufacturing comprise several approaches including the electrolytic iPew method, synthesis of monolayer-capped nanoparticles and the production of ionic silver inks.

    In the synthesis of silver nanoparticles a range of different capping agents may be used. Variables include the type of functional group and the chain length. In the final nano-dispersions these differences are reflected in the sintering temperature, particle size, compatible solvents etc.
