New Electrically Conductive Medical Silver/Silver-Chloride Electrode Ink/Coating
Recently Creative Materials, Inc. has introduced a new electrically conductive medical silver/silver-chloride (Ag/AgCl) electrode ink and coating,126-49.
“This silicone-based product is designed to bond to silicone, polyolefin fabrics, fluoropolymer substrates, and other hard-to-bond substrates,” according to the company. “It exhibits superior resistance to high salt content hydrogels and is useful over a wide temperature range, exhibiting high-temperature resistance up to 325°C.”
“Typical applications include, but are not limited to, medical sensors, ECG, EEG, TENS and defibrillator electrodes.”
Creative Materials adds that its additional benefits include “flexibility and stretchability, with sustained electrical properties when the final product is bent, creased or stretched,” excellent aging characteristics, and is “formulated for screen-printing but can also be syringe-dispensed, dipped, and sprayed.”
