Abstract

Stretchable sensors are increasingly demanded in the fields of smart textiles for sports, military and medical industry. In this work, we propose novel elongation sensitive elastic fibers made up of Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNT), Polyester and Polyurethane. The entire fiber is encased with natural rubber (NR) for protection against mechanical, electrical and humidity external influences. With this fiber, it is possible to reach elongations above 100%. It can be fabricated in different sizes according to application requirements. The relationship between fiber resistance and its physical modifications was measured at different elongations and temperatures. The experimental results show a high sensitivity and a stable temperature behavior.
