E-Textiles Network Webinar – Stretchable Inks for Wearable Applications

August 10 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Format of the Event: Webinar

Date: Monday 10 August 2020

Time: 13:30 hours

This webinar will be presented by Professor Tim Claypole, Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating, Swansea University.

The inks used to create printed electronics for wearable technology, especially if it is to be attached directly to garments, must be able to bend and stretch to conform to the wearers body and to accommodate the movement of the wearer. The performance of a conductive ink consisting of a thermoplastic polyurethane and a blend of functionalised nano carbons developed for application to high stretch garments has been fully characterised from its viscoelastic properties as an ink through to the impact of stretching and flexing the printed ink film.
