About InTouch Sensors
Based on advanced metal-mesh technology, InTouch Sensors offer unique functional advantages over traditional ITO-based sensors, including greater touch sensitivity, speed and distinction, better durability, flexibility and noise immunity, and extensibility to a greater variety of sizes and form factors. InTouch Sensors use copper rather than indium tin oxide (ITO), a rare-earth element used by other touchscreens which is brittle, scarce and expensive. UniPixel produces InTouch Sensors using its proprietary Copperhead™ additive, roll-to-roll manufacturing process for printing patterns and fine-line conductive elements on thin film.

As an additive process for touch sensor production, Copperhead promises numerous advantages over subtractive ITO-based manufacturing, including lower cost due to less process waste, fewer mastering costs by design and a more simplified supply chain. The Copperhead process can produce electronic conductive films for a variety of other applications, including gesture sensors, EMI/RFI Shielding, antennas and capacitive switches, or any application that requires high-fidelity replication of advanced micro-optic structures and surface characteristics over small or large areas.
