CREATIVE MATERIALS INC.: Electrode Ink and Coating
This company has introduced a new electrically conductive medical silver/silver-chloride (Ag/AgCl) electrode ink and coating, 126-49. This silicone-based product is designed to bond to silicone, polyolefin fabrics, fluoropolymer substrates and other hard-to-bond substrates. Additional benefits reportedly include flexibility and stretchability, with sustained electrical properties when the final product is bent, creased or stretched. The coating exhibits resistance to high salt content hydrogels and can be useful over a wide temperature range, exhibiting high-temperature resistance up to 325°C. It also can be cured at room temperature. This product is formulated for screen-printing but can also be syringe-dispensed, dipped, and sprayed. Typical applications include medical sensors, ECG, EEG, TENS and defibrillator electrodes.
