Optical or functional printing – industrial screen-printing offers an amazing diversity of versions for both of them. The classical graphic screen-printing has already gone through a technological transition and reinvents itself over and over, especial in industrial applications.
In industrial applications, screen-printing can totally unfold its strengths, in terms of the variety of applications, rationalisation possibilities and the individualisation of printing and coating processes, which integrate the screen-printing technique into existing production processes. This offers totally new and unsuspected manufacturing processes and all-in-one solutions.

A dual-cure diazo high-end photoemulsion for printing line widths under 30 microns - specifically for use in the solar industry and for printed electronics
Within the field of printed electronics, there are numerous applications in which the screenprinting process is used. These include, for example, OLEDs, touch panels and displays; in this context, we can also include LTCC (Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramics), MLCC (Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors) as well as fuel cells. At the present time, 20 microns and less can already be screenprinted effectively.
The production of solar cells (both mono and multi-crystalline cells) highlights another field, in which ever thinner, but at the same time, higher fingers of conductive silver are required. In this way, high performance cross-sections and very low light-blocking can be achieved on the silicon wafers. Screenprinting has already proved that 30 µm fine lines can be laid down as standard.
We offer our customers resists & coatings for functional and decorative glass design with application-oriented solutions.
These include heat-curable etching and plating resists for use in acidic and alkaline etching and plating baths for sharp contoured screen printing of glass or mono- and polycrystalline solar wafers; or peel and water-resistant, screenprintable masks with good resistance to aqueous cleaning processes, as they are commonly used in the pre-cleaning stage prior to glass processing. KIWO offers a wide variety of product solutions.
As an innovative product, KIWOMASK W 140 is particularly noteworthy, for this can be easily removed without the use of chemicals after the finishing process.
