Dielectric electroactive polymers (dEAP) based on thermoplastic elastomers (TPE)

Dielectric electroactive polymers (dEAP) based on thermoplastic elastomers (TPE)

Dielectric electroactive polymers (dEAP) can change their form when a high voltage (kV) is applied. Potential fields of application are artificial muscles or tactile displays in smartphones. In this paper the manufacturing and function of such a dielectric electroactive polymer with a thermoplastic elastomer will be realized. A thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) serves as a dielectric. The electrodes which discharge the high voltage are made of a conducting polymer (PEDOT/PSS). Due to this combination of materials it will be possible to manufacture dEAP products with conventional methods such as injection moulding or extrusion.
