I'm looking for a silicone-like (flexible, stretchable) conductive polymer with 1 ohm/cm resistance. Does anyone happen to know where/how can I acquire some?

Thank you very much for your time.

  • $\begingroup$ Did you do a google search? There are lots of companies selling these polymers. Call them, ask them for the material that you need. Many of these shops can make materials to your specifications. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I did. Most of the results regard papers and how to make them in a Lab. I want to order and then test if their suitability to my needs. Do you know any companies selling that kind of materials (1 ohm/cm flexible & stretchable silicone-like polymer)? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ When I do a search for "conductive silicone", I am getting more than half a dozen hits for commercial product on the first page alone. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ This question appears to be off-topic because it is about procuring a particular material and not physics. $\endgroup$

I guess you mean "silicone-like", not "silicon-like". Recently, I was looking for a similar material (Need an intermediate resistivity part/material ), but eventually obtained doped silicon rods.

You have several options, depending on the required geometry and properties of the part. For example, there are so-called "intrinsically conducting polymers" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conductive_polymer ). Or you can use something like microwave absorbers, for example, foams "loaded" with carbon (see, e.g., http://www.eccosorb.com/Collateral/Documents/English-US/Electrical%20Parameters/ls%20parameters.pdf ).
