AddiLat enables manufacturing of touchscreen sensor films with market-leading optical performance at 80% lower cost.
Page 2 - About
AddiLat is a developer of innovative eco-friendly printed-electronics manufacturing process technology and materials for fabrication of transparent conducting sensor electrodes in touch-enabled displays, modules, and devices.
Sensor Materials Manufacturing Problem
Touchscreen sensor electrode fabrication using Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) is costly as it requires up to 9 process steps involving vacuum sputtering, photolithography, high temperature processing, and environmentally harsh chemicals. Indium is a semi rare-earth metal which has experienced significant market-price volatility.
Emerging ITO-replacement technologies, based on silver nanowires and metal mesh, have gained some traction but are limited as they cannot match the optical performance of ITO that the market has come to expect in their smartphones and tablets.
Our unique, Additive Lattice technology is designed to enable production of capacitive-touch sensor electrodes with market-leading optical performance at up to 80% lower cost.
AddiLat technology scales economically for low or high volume manufacturing of most touch-enabled electronic products, such as: smartphones, tablets, e-readers, point-of-sale, medical equipment/devices, military equipment, industrial process controls, test equipment, durable goods, automobile dashboard, etc.

AddiLat designed a 3-step process, as opposed to 9-steps required for ITO, and eliminated use of Indium to enable eco-friendly fabrication of patterned electrode material directly on the glass layers used in displays and touchscreen modules.
Unlike silver nanowires and metal mesh technologies, which use metals that create reflectance and haze that impact optical clarity, AddiLat uses materials that offer the market-leading optical performance that consumers demand.
• 80% lower sensor electrode manufacturing cost
o Eliminates photolithography and reduces process steps from 9 to 3
o Higher speed process steps and throughput
o Smaller manufacturing footprint
o Less chemical handling, maintenance, labor, energy, and overhead expense
• Simpler touchscreen stack > Lower device manufacturing cost
o Eliminate PET plastic film layers and lamination steps
o Higher yields with fewer steps
• Better device-level optical clarity
o No PET plastic film layers that reduce optical clarity
o Uses less energy
o Eliminates harsh chemical processing
o Earth-abundant materials
o Efficient use of materials
Our technology is ideal for electrode fabrication of touch display types: Hybrid in-cell, on-cell, touch-on-cover, and one-glass-solution (OGS).
