New metal-based inks enable cost-efficient production of flexible antennas for RFID tags

New metal-based inks enable cost-efficient production of flexible antennas for RFID tags
CypoPrint is the name of a new range of metal-based inks from BASF destined for the production of flexible antennas for RFID tags. RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification and is used to identify and locate goods in a similar way to the barcode system. The non-conductive CypoPrint inks from BASF offer a cost-efficient and more eco-friendly alternative to the current etching technique and represent the first solution for the additive manufacturing of RFID antennas.

BASF specialty foam in solar collectors from the heating technology company Viessmann

BASF specialty foam in solar collectors from the heating technology company Viessmann
The international heating systems manufacturer Viessmann, Germany, now uses Basotect to insulate its solar collectors. The light, flame-retardant melamine resin foam produced by BASF is fitted to the side walls and the rear of flat-plate collectors. Flat-plate collectors capture solar radiation and convert it into heat.

Lightweight Stabilizer from ContiTech made of BASF Polyamide in the new Gran Turismo Porsche Panamera

Lightweight Stabilizer from ContiTech made of BASF Polyamide in the new Gran Turismo Porsche Panamera
Sustainable solutions for lightweight vehicles that also fulfill aesthetic requirements: this is what today’s automakers are looking for. ContiTech Vibration Control, internationally successful manufacturer of engine mounts for the automotive industry and BASF have joined forces to create such solutions. The result is an innovative stabilizer for the new Porsche Panamera. The high-performance integrated component is made of a high-strength polyamide from the Ultramid® CR family and a functionally optimized NR+ natural rubber mixture. It reliably withstands engine torques up to 650 Nm while providing very good sound absorption and secure mounting of the engine in the vehicle. Compared to a metal component with comparable functionality, the sports car manufacturer is able to achieve a weight savings of 35 percent.

Laser transfer printing process from BASF and Schmid

BASF and Schmid have jointly developed a new, contact-free laser transfer printing (LTP) process for metallizing the front and back of solar cells. At present, it is mainly the screen printing process that is used for metallization. The printer and paste system now developed by BASF and Schmid is based on a contact-free laser process and not only offers customers advantages with regard to handling, but also increases the efficiency of cell production. Thus, for example, the breakage rate is reduced and the throughput increased, and it is possible to handle solar cells below 180 µm. Furthermore, because they contain no lead, the BASF pastes are especially environment-friendly. The silver and aluminum pastes are also available as water-based products, i.e. free of solvents, which should lead to significant production improvements, especially in cell manufacturing.
