Using inks to print sensors has been a proven method of electronics printing for some time. Force sensing resistors are used in devices that exhibit a decrease in resistance with an increase in force applied to the surface of the sensor.
Henkel Electronics offers a two component force sensing ink system that when blended to a desired ratio, offers different initial resistance and sensitivity profiles which remain stable during the use phase. Tekra, A Division of EIS, Inc. is your system solutions provider for FSR inks and related material components.
Conductive LOCTITE® ECI 7004HR and LOCTITE® ECI 7004LR, are blendable with non-conductive LOCTITE® NCI 7002 E&C to adjust resistance levels in the range of 50 till 500,000 ohms/sq/25µm. Targeted force sensing applications are wide reaching from: medical, consumer electronics, musical, commercial, and industrial end uses.
