Adhesives Research: Conductive Film
Electrically conductive film.
Glen Rock, PA — Adhesives Research has developed a new electrically conductive film called ARcare® 95000 for use in medical devices that require low resistance and highly reliable Z-axis conductivity. The product is a 4.0 mil (0.10mm), non-tacky, self supported, electrically conductive polymer film with low Z-axis resistance, critical for accurate readings in sensitive medical biosensor and device applications.

This product utilizes the company's electrically conductive technology that offers extremely reliable and stable conductive performance. The film's high tensile strength and low elongation characteristics enable efficient manufacturing and conversion processes.

Medical device applications where the film can be used include: biosensors, defibrillators, medical monitoring devices, electrodes and electrical interconnections.

The company offers capabilities for coating the film with a number of pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) technologies, coatings or conductive inks, such as silver/silver chloride, to enhance the film's functionality for specific applications. In addition, the film's formulation may be customized to alter a number of properties including: conductivity, thickness (0.5 mils to 5 mils), flexibility, elasticity, elongation and resistance to meet specific application needs.
