Capacitive screen resistance 200ohm 125um Flexible Antistatic Conductive ITO Film PET Film
ITO is normally deposited by a physical vapor deposition process such as D.C. magnetron sputtering or electron beam deposition. Less frequently, ITO can be incorporated in inks using an appropriate film-forming polymer resin and solvent system, and deposited by screen printing - albeit with lower transparency and conductivity compared to a physical deposition process.
Of the various transparent conductive oxides (TCOs), ITO is considered the premium TCO, having superior conductivity and transparency, stability and ease of patterning to form transparent circuitry. ITO is used in a number of display technologies, such as LCD, OLED, plasma, electroluminescent, and electrochromatic displays, as well as in a number of touch screen technologies.
Further uses of this versatile material include antistatic indium tin oxide coatings, EMI shielding, photovoltaic solar cells, aircraft windshields, and freezer case glass for demisting. Yet further applications for ITO are as an infrared reflecting coating to reflect heat energy such as in low-E glass and in low-pressure sodium lamps.

ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) is often used for coating glass, but due to modern developments, ITO can now also be used to coat plastic substrates such as acrylic, polycarbonate or polyester (PET) film. ITO film has since become an important component of many technologies and applications.
Polyester film is composed of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and is a high performance, transparent thermoplastic. ITO Polyester film has ideal mechanical properties for processing, such as vacuum coating and laminating. The level of conductivity and transparency of ITO films, are favourable for many uses, over other coating options.
It is often more suitable to use ITO polyester film over other thermoplastics for certain applications, due to the properties that ITO films possess:
- High tensile strength
- Great dimensional stability
- Low moisture absorption
- Resilience at a wide temperature range, with a high melting point
- High UV resistance
- Excellent electrical properties
- High optical transparency
- Greater oxygen permeability
- Good gas barrier
- Highly conductive
Applications of ITO Coated PET Films
The properties of ITO film have made it a popular choice for use in a large range of applications and products across many sectors. Examples include:
- Insulation Films
- Antimicrobial Films
- Packaging Films
- Protective Films
- Tamper Evident Films
- Photovoltaic Back-Sheets
- Electroluminescent Lamps
- Medical Sensors
- Electrophoretic displays
- EMI/RFI Shielding
- Resistive Touch Screens
- Touch Screen Components
- Smart Windows
ITO film coatings can endure harsh environments and temperatures, so ITO thin film strain gauges can be used in more extreme environments such as gas turbines and jet and rocket engines.
ITO films can also be used to defrost an aircraft’s windshield. The application of voltage to the surface generates heat, that can be conducted by the ITO coated film.
Resistive touchscreens are the most common type of touchscreen in use and ITO PET film is a component used in these devices.
