Printacarb adds electronic functions to paper

Printacarb is a type of an electrically conductive printing ink which was developed for offset printing facilitating the efforts to add electronic functions to paper. Using the everlasting carbon as a basic material an “easy to use” ink was invented. Printacarb is now both for waterless-offset printing (Printacarb alpha) such as for traditional offset (Printacarb 20) reachable. The process of adding printed electronic functions to paper is analogue to conventional colour printing and means no additional costs. Depending on the application the electronic functional structures can be overprinted by this the hidden structures can act as safety or authenticity sign of the printed product.
