Metal rubber

  1. 1. Metal RubberMetal Rubber
  2. 2. Metal Rubber is a unique self-assembledMetal Rubber is a unique self-assemblednancomposite material that combines the highnancomposite material that combines the highelectrical conductivity of metals with the lowelectrical conductivity of metals with the lowmechanical modulus of elastomers. The self-mechanical modulus of elastomers. The self-assembly process allows the simultaneousassembly process allows the simultaneousmodification of both conductivity and modulusmodification of both conductivity and modulusduring manufacturing. Maximum electricalduring manufacturing. Maximum electricalconductivity is 5x10-6 W cm. Maximumconductivity is 5x10-6 W cm. Maximumelongation is approximately 200%. The electricalelongation is approximately 200%. The electricalconductivity varies slightly with elongation.conductivity varies slightly with elongation.Introduction
