Creative Materials has introduced 129-06 temperature-sensing conductive adhesive, coating, and ink in either one-component (C) or two-component (A/B) versions. The resistance of 129-06 has a linear response to temperature that is reported to be between -40ºC and 80ºC. The product has high reliability due to low hysteresis, high flexibility, and strong adhesion to a wide variety of substrates including most metals and plastics as well as silicones. Creative Materials reports that this technology can replace the use of surface-mount technology such as RTDs.
Applications for 129-06 include—but are not limited to—self-regulating heating elements, printed thermistors, sensitive component protection, and the creation of smart surfaces.
