Insulectro and DuPont Microcircuit Materials (DuPont) recently signed an agreement that allows Insulectro to distribute key DuPont polymer thick film paste products to U.S. customers in the thin film photovoltaic, printed circuit board, smart card, and membrane touch switch markets. The collaboration allows DuPont to focus on further development and expansion of its printed electronics product portfolio, and leverages the extensive relationships Insulectro has established with key accounts in the printed electronics industry. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
“Insulectro is excited to add DuPont Microcircuit materials to its portfolio,” said Tim Redfern, president and CEO, Insulectro. “We have enjoyed a long-term relationship with DuPont over the past 10 years, and this recent contract allows us to bring new, game changing products to our existing customers as well as new customers in the printed electronics industry. The addition of DuPont’s extensive line of printed electronic materials strategically complements the portfolio of products we distribute. We are proud to represent best-in-class vendors such as DuPont.”
Within the last year, DuPont Microcircuit Materials has expanded its printed electronics offering with a line of low-silver conductive inks designed to enable cost savings for a broad range of applications, including membrane touch switch (MTS), radio-frequency identification (RFID), and wearable electronic applications.
“We view printed electronics as a growing market where we continue to invest in new capabilities and innovative new products,” said Angela Lawrence, Americas sales manager, DuPont Microcircuit Materials. “Working together with Insulectro will strengthen our pursuit of innovation, while they can help us provide world-class service and accelerate sales. It’s a winning combination.”
