Fluorinated Electroactive Materials
High performance Piezotech® polymers are made from select combinations of vinylidene fluoride (VDF), trifluoroethylene (TrFE), 1,1-chlorofluoroethylene (CFE), and/or chlorotrifluoroethylene (CTFE). Two ranges are available with different electroactive properties.
P(VDF-TrFE-CTFE) & P(VDF-TrFE-CFE) Terpolymers
Piezotech® Electroactive Materials are available as:
P(VDF-TrFE) copolymers, and P(VDF-TrFE-CTFE) or P(VDF-TrFE-CFE) terpolymers are produced via a unique process resulting in high purity and low volatile content. Polymers in powder form can be melt processed directly or formulated into inks for the printed electronic market.
Piezotech® polymers dissolve readily into a wide range of solvents. They can be formulated into inks with various viscosities and dry contents. These inks can be processed via routine printing techniques, including screen-printing, spin coating, solvent casting, slot-die coating, ink-jet printing, and roll-to-roll processes.
