  • Patent number: 8827435
    Abstract: There is provided an ink for printing a conductor pattern on a substrate, including platinum particles, wherein 70% or more of the platinum particles have a particle size of 0.05 to 0.5 ?m. Even when the viscosity of the printing ink is controlled to a relatively low level for use in ink-jet printing process, it is possible by such particle size distribution control to prevent sedimentation of the platinum particles and excessive shrinkage of the conductor pattern due to sintering of the platinum particles during firing so that the conductor pattern can attain improved conduction characteristics.

  • Ink
    Patent number: 8623939
    Abstract: An ink contains at least a first solid particle, and a second solid particle formed of a base material of a different main component from that of the first solid particle. The first solid particle and the second solid particle have zeta potentials of the same polarity, or zeta potentials of 0±5 mV. The first and second solid particles in the ink have the same surface property, specifically the same interface property in the ink. This makes it possible to use a common dispersant suited for adsorption on the first and second solid particles. In this way, more than one kind of solid particle can be stably dispersed using a sole kind of dispersant.
