Using ink to print conductive resistors has been a proven method of printed electronics for decades. Inks with set activation permit the printing of sensors and resistors with varying resistance values used in a wide variety of applications including heated floors, walls and variable potentiometers.
Tekra is unique in that we are a natural distribution extension of Henkel Electronics and their diverse offerings of ressistive inks and heat conducting ink for resistors, potentiometers and heating elements.
