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)
Copolymers

Piezotech® FC is a range of P(VDF-TrFE) fluorinated copolymers.

These semi-crystralline polymers are piezoelectric, pyroelectric, and ferroelectric.

 

Piezotech® FC copolymers are an excellent choice for sensors, energy harvesting, actuators, speakers, ferroelectric memories.

P(VDF-TrFE-CTFE) & P(VDF-TrFE-CFE) Terpolymers

Piezotech® RT is a range of P(VDF-TrFE-CTFE) and P(VDF-TrFE-CFE) terpolymers.

These terpolymers exhibit remarkable high-k, electrostrictive, and electrocaloric properties.

 

Piezotech® RT terpolymers are particularly adaptated for high-k dielectrics in OTFT, actuators, and electrocaloric devices.

 

Piezotech® Electroactive Materials are available as:

Powders

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.

Inks

Electroactive ink 3

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.

Films

Electroactive films of Piezotech® materials can be produced from the melt or by ink casting.

Small film samples (12*12 cm) are available for prototyping and R&D laboratories.

Large film quantities and rolls of films can produced with a partner by solvent casting on a wide range of substrates.
