P(VDF-TrFE) copolymers powder
PIEZOTECH® FC COPOLYMERS are an excellent choice for sensors, energy harvesting, actuators, speakers and memories. They are very stable (resistance to moisture, and to temperatures up to 120 °C) and exhibit high sensitivity over a wide range of pressure (mPa to GPa) and frequency (mHz to GHz). They exhibit excellent mechanical properties (high elastic modulus and flexibility) and transparency.
Sensors fabricated from PIEZOTECH® FC copolymers enable the development of unique applications with detection through touch, deformation, ultrasounds, heat, impact, acoustic waves. Thanks to the piezoelectric effect, sensors do not require an external power source, strain is rapidly induced on these materials when exposed to an electric field. Actuator performance is enabled by their high energy density response, even at low electric fields (< 50 V.μm-1).
P(VDF-TrFE-CTFE) or P(VDF-TrFE-CFE) Terpolymer Powders
P(VDF-TrFE-CTFE) or P(VDF-TrFE-CFE) are unique relaxor ferroelectric polymers that exhibit high electrostrictive strain and high dielectric constants.
- High deformation (directly proportional to the applied electric field squared, E²)
- High elastic energy
- High stress
