Thick-Film Materials and Ceramic Tapes from ESL ElectroScience
ESL ElectroScience and ESL Europe manufacture screen-printable pastes such as thick-film paste conductors, dielectrics and resistors (also known as thick-film inks, paints or coatings), ceramic tape systems (tape casting), and fired parts such as porous alumina and zirconia cover plates, SOFC substrates, MEAs, and both anode-supported and electrolyte-supported fuel cells. These advanced materials find application in hybrid microcircuits and multilayer microelectronics, electronic components such as inductors, capacitors and transformers, heaters on steel or other substrates, plus low and high temperature co-fired ceramics (LTCC and HTCC). In addition, applications include photovoltaic solar cells, SOFC and other fuel cells, temperature/pressure/gas sensors, sealing glasses and other thick-film interconnect or metallization needs. For 2015, see ESL's new material systems for automotive planar oxygen sensors (switching and wideband), NOx sensors and other multi-layer HTCC components, our new ceramic setter release tape, and our new RoHS compliant alumina tapes 44009 and 44007-G.
ESL meets its customers' challenges with off-the-shelf products, and by the development of proprietary or custom formulations. In absolute confidentiality, ESL delivers on-time, low-cost, high-reliability, stable and reproducible materials in an ISO 9001:2008 environment, scaling up from laboratory and pilot-scale quantities to high-volume production. ESL ships orders of thick-film materials that range from a few grams of paste and sheets of tape to tonnage or millions of square meter lots.
See ESL's environmentally-friendly RoHS and REACH compliant products (lead and cadmium free, etc.), highlighted throughout this web site, with many new 'green' products already added, and with more coming now in 2015.

We invite you to select ESL thick-film paste and ceramic tape products, view the product data sheets, and order trial quantities on-line.
If we do not meet your needs, do contact our Customer Service or Technical Service staff in North America, in Europe, and in Asia. Not all ESL products are listed on-line, and we also welcome the opportunity to develop and manufacture new proprietary compositions just for you.
