The PRISTINE business innovation project focussed on the enhancement of the production process to enable larger scale manufacture of silver nanowires to supply large scale application areas including IoT, smart packaging, printed lighting, touch panels, photovoltaics and heating.

The PRISTINE innovation action project objectives were to:

  1. Prepare robust business case for commercialisation of PRISTINE technology.
  2. Develop Sales & Marketing strategy in order to reach untapped markets and new customers outside the touch panel markets.
  3. Obtain further investment (Phase II funding or private investment) to develop product performance to levels required by industry (i.e. lower sheet resistance, higher light transmission, lower haze and lower costs).
  4. Grow the application areas & customer base increasing revenues.
  5. Investigate options to optimise synthesis reaction and yield using real-time monitoring and post synthesis purification methods.
  6. Develop future in-line quality control procedures specifically for production of the 20-40nm product.
