Creative Materials offers a wide variety of elastomeric functional inks and adhesives to address the demand for new form factors by the printed electronics and wearable markets. Our elastomeric inks and adhesives adhere well to a range of substrates including various grades of silicones, urethanes, TPEs, various textiles, and other low modulus or stress-sensitive substrates.
Creative Materials standard and custom formulations of elastomeric inks and adhesives feature elongative properties with high recovery and low hysteresis. Typical applications include manufacturing and assembly of products and components in tactile sensors, compressible medical devices Advanced technologies include sensors and circuits. Other advantages available include heat resistance, chemical resistance, and a variety of moisture permeability properties.
Methods for applying these products include screen-printing, syringe dispensing, and spray apply. These materials exhibit good electrical properties and are often used when a wide-range of operating temperatures and high-temperature resistance is required. Other advantages include low exothermic heat rise during cure and resiliency when bonding substrates with dissimilar coefficients of thermal expansion.
