Study of screen-printed electroconductive textile materials

Ilda Kazani UGent (2012)
abstract
During the last decade, a lot of research is done in screen printing with conductive silver-based inks on different woven and nonwoven textile fabrics. This method offers flexible and lightweight conductive textiles with excellent electroconductive properties to be used in smart textiles. Furthermore, those printed textiles can be used in different applications such as textile antennas, feed lines, simple one-layer routing structures, electrodes and circuits. Maintenance of the printed textiles in daily life is one of the main problems that this method was facing. In this dissertation, screen printing technology was applied on different woven, nonwoven and foam substrates with four silver-based inks. Besides this, a solution was found to make printed textiles washable/dry-cleanable up to 60 cycles. Therefore, a thermoplastic polyurethane layer was put on top of the printed area to protect it during the frequent washing/dry-cleaning cycles. During the measurements of the square resistance, it was found that the electroconductive screen-printed woven textiles are anisotropic. The anisotropy was not detected with a previously used measurement method: the four-point probe method did not reveal anisotropy, but the Van Der Pauw method did. In order to be able to interpret the measurements correctly, a mathematical analysis of the measuring method has been established.
