Paper Abstract

A new inoic polymer composite grafted fluoropolymer hybrid with fluoro- or carbonhydrogen- elestomer which can be cured by diamine system has been proposed as an electroactive polymer (EAP). Composites of this material and platinum or Pd electrodes bend in response to low-voltage electric stimuli and may function as soft actuators like muscles; the composites offer high strain under an applied low electric field. The combination of these electrostrictive properties with its excellent processability and tailorable molecular composition makes it attractive for a diversity of actuation works.
