Printing Inks for Touch Panels and 3C

On many devices, membrane switches are increasingly being replaced by touch panels (touch screens) made of glass. The combination of electronics with state-of-the-art glass products results in durable surfaces that are easy to keep clean - making them suitable for medical equipment and building-control systems, for example.

High-opacity screen printing inks for 3C applications/devices (3C = computing, communication, and consumer electronics) meet and exceed the standard resistance and density requirements of the touch panel market.

Suitable Ink Systems:

Keyboards and Touchscreens (not 3C):

UltraGlass UVGL 

  • UV-curable 2-component ink, very durable even without oven drying
  • Saves energy, time, and space
  • Perfect for glass packaging and for large panels of flat glass for indoor use      

MaraGlass MGL

  • Solvent-based, high gloss, 2-component ink for indoor decoration
  • High chemical, mechanical, and dish washer resistance
  • Free of aromatic compounds: Complies with IKEA Standard MAT-0066  

3C Applications:

MaraGlass MG3C

  • Outstanding optical density
  • Fulfils highest adhesion and resistance requirements
  • High electrical resistance values of the ink film

MaraGlass MGHT

  • Outstanding temperature resistance
  • Fulfils highest adhesion and resistance requirements
  • Very good opacity
