Designed for hard-to-bond substrates in medical applications.
Creative Materials has introduced an electrically conductive screen printable silver/silver-chloride medical ink designed for difficult-to-print substrates such as silicone, polyolefin fabrics, and fluoropolymers. The silicone-based ink system, named 126-49, offers flexibility and stretchability, and is said to maintain electrical properties when the final printed product is bent, creased, or stretched. The company says it has excellent resistance to hydrogels with high salt content and withstands temperatures up to 325 C. Typical applications include medical sensors as well as ECG, EEG, TENS, and defibrillator electrodes.
