Advanced Conductive Polymers

The advanced conductive polymer technologies offered by Heraeus include two commercial products recently added to our portfolio: AmplicoatTM and TecticoatTM.

These technologies are targeted to provide device developers and manufacturers with an improved materials toolset to enable breakthrough solutions.

Amplicoat is intended for medical applications inside the body such as catheters and leads for cardiac and neural applications. It can be applied to a range of electrode substrate materials and offers device processing flexibility.

Tecticoat, on the other hand, is intended for applications outside the body, e.g. EEG, ECG, EMG and wearables. It has been successfully applied to several substrates, and can take materials — whether conductive or nonconductive, rigid or flexible — and transform it into a conductive material.
