Sintering Paste

Ag paste for low temperature firing onto glass substrate


This silver paste forms dense membrane, shows low resistivity and obtains good adhesion to glass substrate by firing from 430℃ to 600℃.


~Difference from the Ag pastes for ceramics~

Silver paste for ceramic normally starts sintering around 500℃ and even LTCC needs its top temperature between 800℃ to 900℃ for sintering. But the silver paste for low temperature firing is designed to start sintering nearly 350℃ and culminate around 400℃. Besides the paste shows good adhesiveness to glass substrates by sintering around 430℃.





It contains glass frit which is lead free.
It can be fired at low temperature, 480 degree Celsius.
It has low resistance value, 3.0μ Ω・cm.
It has good bonding strength to glass substrate.



Metal content 83~87wt%
Viscosity 200~300Pa・s
Temperature 430℃~480℃

Paste for LTCC (Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramics)


We have developed and manufactured conductive paste for car and communication devices. Nowadays all devices have become smaller and smaller so the electrodes have become finer or thinner.
Very little difference in electrode materials often produce variable results from very little difference. We handle them with flexibility and knowledge and technique.




What is LTCC ?

LTCC is the abbreviation for Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramics. It is made by mixing alumina and glass compound to form a green sheet. LTCC enables sintering at temperature as low as or less than 1000℃ so that Ag or Cu can be adopted as the conductor, making co-fire possible after laminating the conductor and green sheets, it also miniatures devices by low resistance and high density of substrates so that LTCC beckons to be used for high frequency devices.



1.Fine lines by screen-printing


It makes no open circuit or short circuit when screen-printing in L/S=20/20, 30/30, 40/40.


2.Shrinkage behavior control


Shrinkage behavior becomes under control by adding additives and our paste shows good match with a variety of green sheets.


3.High Hear-Resistance(with Fine-Line printability)

TMA (Thermal Mechanical Analysis) result of silver paste (No additives). It starts shrinking at higher temperature and still keeps fine-line printability.



Paste for MLCC (Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitor)


Nickel paste for MLCC inner electrode

A requirement for thinner MLCC`s inner electrode has been increasing as MLCC has recently been more and more miniaturized and obtained higher capacity. DAIKEN has manufactured nickel paste for MLCC for years. We have now commercial production of a new nickel paste which is developed for the thinner electrodes, using newly developed dielectric ceramic fine particles as a common material. We offer it with customization in order to suit your conditions(printing, laminating, sintering), as only one and number one product to our respective customer.


What is MLCC?

Multilayer ceramic capacitor is made of the structure in which a number of dielectric layers and electrode layers connected in parallel are stacked.
MLCC is small, obtains a large capacity and is excellent in the high-frequency characteristics. Therefore, it has become an important passive component that is essential for electronic equipments.
The electronic equipments in which it is used are mainly mobile phones, personal computers, digital cameras, flat-screen TVs and automotive parts.
