*All the inks are screen printable. They are either UV curable or low temperature (<150°C) unless specified. Please contact us if you would like if you are interested in following inks.
Interface: UV curable inks to create a smooth surface on various fabrics, including cotton, polyester/cotton, Lycra etc. Cured film shows good adhesion to textile, good flexibility and surface smoothness.
UV-IF-1004: standard interface
UV-IF-1039: waterproof interface
Encapsulation: The interface inks above can also be used as encapsulation to produce good protection for the printed electronics.
Conductor: Thermally curable silver inks. It can be applied on various textiles. Cured film shows good adhesion to various textiles and good flexibility. High conductivity can be achieved by printing the interface layer on textile before printing the conductive inks.
Fabinks TC-C4001: ~30mΩ/sq on polyester cotton when using with interface inks.
Fabinks TC-C4007: lower conductivity but higher flexibility compared to Fabink TC-4001.
Dielectric: Thermally curable dielectric ink. It can be applied on various textiles, including cotton, polyester/cotton, Lycra® etc as well as materials such as alumina and Kapton®. Cured film shows good adhesion to various textiles and good flexibility.
Piezoelectric: flexible PZT inks for sensors and actuators.
TC-PPE8002 – Low temperature Flexible PZT ink for sensors and actuators on fabric and plastic
TC-CPE8001 – High temperature Ceramic PZT ink for sensors and actuators on alumina and steel
Thermochromic: This ink is UV curable and available in a range of colours and activation temperatures to suit your applications.
Electrode: Thermally curable conductive carbon silicone rubber pastes for applications such as biopotential monitoring and electrical stimulation. The cured paste has good flexibility and is biocompatible.
TC-E0001 – Electrode for biopotential measurement (e.g., ECG, EEG, EMG)
TC-E0002 – Electrode for electrical stimulation (e.g., muscle stimulation for muscle exercise, rahabilitation)
Sacrificial: The ink can be applied to textiles in conjunction with the interface inks or on to alumina, Kapton® or Mylar®. Once dried, the sacrificial layer can be completely removed by application of 160°C.
