Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) is used to make transparent conductive coatings.


Typical applications of ITO-coated substrates include:

  • Electrodes for LCD and electrochromic displays.
  • Touch panel contacts.
  • Energy conserving architectural windows.
  • Defogging aircraft and automobile windows.
  • Heat-reflecting coatings to increase light bulb efficiency.
  • Gas sensors.
  • Antistatic window coatings.
  • Wear resistant layers on glass.
