Advanced Polymer Composites By Electric Field Induced Particle Alignment
14:00 - 14:25
CondAlign develops a technology wherein electric fields are used to structure and align particles in polymer matrices. The particles are fixated when the matrix is cured, enabling the production of advanced composites with a wide variety of end-product features. The aligned structures allow CondAlign to control properties such as conductivity, where the technology opens for production of conductive composites at filling fractions well below the percolation threshold. This has both cost and quality advantages compared to conventional solutions. At Printed Electronics Europe 2016, Condalign will present the latest advances of its technology, its R2R fabrication tool and a few applications currently under development.
