AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 14, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Applied Nanotech Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:APNT) is pleased to announce that it will showcase its non-contact printable metallic inks for use in the manufacturing of silicon solar cells at SNEC PV Power Expo 2011. The conference will be held from February 22-24, 2011 in Shanghai and is the largest solar show in Asia with 100,000 participants anticipated. Applied Nanotech will be at booth E7-213
China is home to some of the world's leading solar cell manufacturers and one of Applied Nanotech's most important potential customer bases. Coming out on top in 2009, five of the top 10 solar panel makers in the world came from China, according to GTM Research. Chinese companies were also expected to have led the world in solar cell and module manufacturing spending in 2010, accounting for seven of the 10 largest industry gainers, according to market research firm, iSuppli.
"We see China as an important market segment for our metallic ink and paste products," commented Doug Baker, CEO of Applied Nanotech Holdings. "The SNEC show will enable us to exhibit our products to the largest solar cell manufacturers in the world."
Applied Nanotech will be exhibiting aluminum, nickel, and copper formulations that can be printed using inkjet, aerosolized jet, spray coating, and other non-contact methods for patterning high resolution lines with high conductivity. Non-contact printing methods will enable future generations of ultra thin solar cells that will significantly reduce the cost per watt of energy produced. Applied Nanotech will also be exhibiting screen printable pastes for conventional solar cell manufacturing processes as well as other inks and pastes developed for the general printed electronics industry.
