3M Electronic Solutions Division has uncloaked its unpatterned indium tin oxide (ITO) film that claims to offer an alternative source for high-quality, high-volume touch sensor films. The film can be used in touch-enabled electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, notebooks and all-in-one (AIO) computers, noted the company.

Specifically, the 3M Advanced ITO film can help touch panel manufacturers and integrators to achieve production targets and meet growing consumer demand for the touch screen market. The etchable touch sensor films offer excellent optical transparency, high conductivity and product quality at competitive prices. 3M plans to ramp up its total global touch sensor film manufacturing capacity to more than 600,000 square meters per month in 2014, which includes 3M Patterned Silver Nanowire Touch Sensor Film, 3M Patterned Metal Mesh Touch Sensor Film and 3M Advanced ITO Touch Sensor Film.

The advanced ITO film from 3M boasts low electrical resistivity, less than 150? per square, enabling multi-finger, multi-touch applications. With demonstrated sensors at up to 46in diagonal, the film is geared for small and larger format touch modules. The films are made of a flexible material that can be conformed to gently curved surfaces, enabling rounded designs, added the firm.
