Agfa and Clariant announce agreement on Clariant’s Materials for Printed Electronics


Clariant, a focused, sustainable and innovative specialty chemical company, and Agfa, a leading company in imaging technology and IT solutions, today announced an agreement under which Agfa assumes ownership of Clariant’s Electronic Materials portfolio.

After a thorough strategic review, Clariant decided that its Electronic Materials business, consisting of cutting edge technology such as the PRELECT® TPS Nano Silver Conductive Inks, was not sufficiently aligned with the existing high value specialty portfolio at the heart of the company’s long-term strategy. Therefore, Clariant is confident that transferring ownership of the Electronic Materials portfolio to Agfa presents it with the best opportunity to continue its path of successful development.
