APC

Optical Characteristic

Furuya Metal's "APC" Ag-alloy is a material which utilizes the excellent low resistivity and high reflectivity material properties of Ag while improving on the environmental and heat resistance weaknesses.
APC materials are used in many applications including touch panel wiring, the reflecting electrodes of OLED and reflective LCDs, LED and crystal resonators, and power semiconductors.
In addition, as a pioneer of Ag-alloys, we are constantly developing new alloys which will surpass APC in order to satisfy various technical demands.

Reflectivity Reflectivity Wavelength
Silver has the highest reflectivity among all pure metals.
Silver has the lowest electro and heat resistivity.
