HOW IT WORKS?

Our Products

Our conductive inks and plating solutions are available with silver, gold, and platinum. Other metals (iridium, palladium) are currently in a developmental stage. You can apply our products using inkjet printing, aerosol spray, slot die, or dip dye deposition methods.

Our Technology

ORELTECH technology enables simple, direct, and fast deposition of metal coatings. OTech conductive inks and plating solutions are cured with safe, low-temperature plasma technology, leaving no chemical waste behind. Our technology consists of two simple steps:

  1. Deposition of OTech products
  2. Metal layer formation by cold plasma
