Transparent Conductive Coatings for Plastic and Temperature Sensitive Substrates

ECI supplies ITO and ITO AR Transparent Conductive coatings deposited at process temperatures below 50ºC. ECI's low-temperature coating process is recommended for assemblies and components that require strict control of temperature influences. These coatings are extremely durable and resistant to humidity.

  • Resistivity ranging from 15 to 1,000 ohms/sq.
  • Typical Transmission > 80% @ visible for ITO Transparent Conductive Coatings
  • Typical Reflection is < 0.5% across the visible spectrum for ITOAR Conductive Coatings
  • ITO and ITOAR Coatings meet or exceed the durability requirements of MIL-C- 48497
  • Custom busbars are available

Typical Substrate Materials include:

  • Molded Polymer Optics
  • Polycarbonates
  • Acrylics
  • Styrene
  • CR-39
  • Polyesters
  • Ultem®
  • Zeonex®
  •  
  • Display Windows
  • Fresnel Lenses
  •  
  • Laminated Display Packages
  • Cemented Glass Optics
  • Touch Panels
  •  
  • Temperature Sensitive Substrates
  • Glass/Metal assemblies
  •  

 

ECI's Transparent Gold Coating (#969) has excellent shielding properties. ECI also offers a permanent anti-static film (#1258) with ohms per square values from 10,000 to 100,000. These films exhibit optical clarity and environmental stability with permanent conductive properties. We recommend these coatings to customers whose application can tolerate lower transmission values at a reduced cost.

ECI will supply your display window complete to specification including the substrate material, silver grounding busbars, anti-reflection and transparent conductive coatings.
