Microcircuit Materials Improve Plasma Picture Quality

The seventh generation of Fodel photo-imageable, thick-film pastes for the metallization of front-bus electrodes used in plasma display panels provides improved image quality and is said to enable substantial cost reductions through lower paste consumption and reduced precious metal content. Completely lead free, the latest version of the paste employs patent-pending black pigments to reduce dependence on Ru and achieve improved blackness and conductivity at lower paste usage. This reduces Ru consumption by 80% in a typical plasma television when compared to previous generations of Fodel pastes. Further improvements in photopolymer technology afford the ability to achieve finer line resolutions at reduced fired thicknesses. For more details, call DUPONT USA, Wilmington, DE. (800) 441-7515.
