Technical Details & Test Data
OTech Platinum as Thin Film
Large Area structure
- Curing time: 15-20 minutes.
- Curing apparatus: Cold plasma instrument with a low pressure chamber.
- Curing temperature: Temperature in the plasma chamber does not exceed 70 ⁰C. No additional heating is needed. That temperature can be lowered to room temperature using a temperature-controlled plasma chamber.

Storage & Handling
Directions for Use and Storage
- Storage: Inks can be stored in closed containers for up to 12 month in dry, dark conditions.
- Clean-up: Materials can be cleaned up using alcohols and ketones, preferably isopropanol.
- Pre-treatment: In some cases, to ensure better wettability and/or adhesion, the substrate material must be pre-treated prior to ink application.
- Handling: Please note that the ink is acidic (pH > 2). Use gloves and protective goggles, avoid direct skin contact. In some cases (fabric substrates) there is a need to rinse the substrate after the metallization process.
