Piezoelectric and Electroactive Films

P(VDF-TrFE) piezoelectric films can be processed from the melt or from solution casting. PVDF is only soluble in a few highly toxic solvents such as DMF, NMP or DMAc. On the contrary, Piezotech® FC, P(VDF-TrFE) copolymers are soluble in a wider range of non-toxic solvents, enabling solvent casting process with decreased environmental impact. Thus, they can be coated on a wide variaty of substrates from few µm to tens of µm

PVDF piezoelectric properties degrade above 80 °C, whereas Piezotech® FC20 properties are stable up to 130 °C, offering many new opportunities as sensors or actuators in different markets.

Rolls of electroactive polymers films are produced in collaboration with partners. We also commercialize small film samples (12*12 cm) for laboratory scale evaluation and prototyping.
