Conductive Ink Demonstrator



DuPont scientists developed a truly game-changing material: a conductive ink that can be stretched.  Showing the world what this means requires a dramatic demonstration; it is an “enabling technology” that makes it possible to integrate electronics into physical shapes in a way that is really unprecedented.

Dupont asked Porticos to design, perfect, and build a dozen “demonstrator” units that would show off the potential of this technology.

Conductive Ink

DuPont Electronics & Imaging, a technology company that brings technology-driven solutions around the world have created conductive ink that can be thermoformed, and they partnered with Porticos, a product design, and product development engineering consulting firm in Morrisville, NC to create a demo to showcase how it works. Porticos’ hardware engineers worked with DuPont to define how the demo would look and how it should work, then we designed, engineered, and built it. This revolutionary ink unlocks a new set of possibilities for electronic products. Instead of traditional buttons and switches—which take up a lot of space on electronics—this conductive ink can create switches that are printed into electronics, making devices lighter and more beautiful. It also cuts down on production costs and time with its precision and modernization.

Thanks to the demo built by Porticos’ hardware engineers, DuPont can share more about the benefits and positive change using conductive ink provides with the global solutions they provide to other businesses and technologically-adept people around the world, and can also consider themselves leaders on the forefront of how this new technology will revolutionize the future of electronics. Porticos is proud to have partnered with a company as committed to addressing customers’ immediate needs as it pertains to technology as we are.
