Functional inks and solutions for the printed electronics
Nanopaint emerged as a Spinoff from the University of Minho in 2016, having acquired a strong know-how on electroactive polymers, composites and nanoparticle synthesis, for more than 10 years. Our purpose is to supply innovative functional inks for the printed electronics market, which is why our materials are subjected to rigorous testing standards to ensure the best quality and performance. Nanopaint’s team is composed of highly trained and experienced people with expertise in physics, chemistry, electronics and materials engineering, dedicated to the achievement of the best products to our clients.
Nanopaint produces distinctive functional inks which can be optimized for different printing techniques: screen printing, spray, inkjet, doctor blade, among others. We also produce standard film sheets with specific proprieties and we are able to offer customized printed sensors according to customer needs.
Nanopaint support every client’s project from the early to the final stage of development, i.e., from concept to design, and prototyping to mass production, using always the best technology and solutions. We give consulting as well in order to create high value products or improving the industrial processes of our clients.
We are privileged to be working with many companies, R&D centers and Institutes around the world. Our clients always come first and we make ensure that they are fully satisfied with our products and services.
We supply clients from a wide range of industries: Automotive, Biomedical, Consumer electronics, Textile and Sports.
Our technology can be applied in most of the industries, so if you have in mind a specific application or product that you want to develop, you can contact us and we will be glad to help you.
Nanopaint piezoresistive ink shows a strong variation of the electrical resistance upon mechanical deformation, allowing the implementation of force and stress sensors on different types of substrates. Some applications are:
A piezoelectric material can generate a voltage when a mechanical force is applied and can be deformed under an electrical excitation. Our piezoelectric ink can be used to produce sensors and actuators for different applications:
Our range of magnetic inks are composed by: Ferromagnetic, Magnetoelectric and Superparamagnetic inks. Several types of sensor and actuators can be fabricated with these inks, such as magnetic field and electrical current sensors. Some applications are used in:
With a continuous R&D base, Nanopaint develop and optimizes functional materials that suit different printing methods to lead the printed electronics industry. We work with our customers to tailor materials specifically to meet their requirements, to help their projects advance from prototype through to product release.
We believe that strong values are crucial to a better relationship with our clients, which is why we are fully dedicated to offer you the best materials, the best technology and the best solutions.
