Stretchable

Dycotec Wearable Stretchable Conductive/Encapsulant Products

Dycotec Materials offer a range of stretchable silver conductive and encapsulation layers for applications such as wearable electronics eg clothing, RFID, heaters, electrodes and sensors.  The pastes can also be used in applications that require thermoforming.

Our stretchable conductive silver paste system, DM-SIP-2001, can be stretched up to 140% and exhibits small resistance changes (<10%) after stress cycling at 20% elongation.

We provide our stretchable pastes to a global customer base, offering a flexible delivery service from low volume samples to high volume to meet our customers’ production needs. We can rapidly tailor formulations for specific customer requirements.

Benefits of our stretchable pastes include:
