Abstract [en]

Textile actuators are at their infancy within the field of electromechanically active polymers. Crude fabric coatings as well as coated pieces of yarns can certainly perform actuation. However, they do not fully consider the capabilities of textile processes and structures. To allow for such possibilities, it is required to have a sufficient supply of processable functional fibres. The presented pilot line is designed to produce said functional fibres from commercial textile yarns. The three continuous processes composing the pilot line are: the layered dip coating using a PEDOT:PSS based solution, the electrodeposition of polypyrrole (PPy) onto the PEDOT coated fibres, and the ultraviolet cured dip coating of ionogels (i.e. dipping followed by UV curing). The continuous aspect of the processes is a key element for fabric manufacturing. Indeed, even the smallest usable fabric requires a substantial length of yarn. This is one of the reasons why the produced fibres were tested on an industrial knitting machine, the other reason being to test their processability. Additionally, a series of tests have been done on the fibres to obtain their conductive, tensile and, if applicable, actuative properties. Therefore, we present a pilot line producing knittable PEDOT coated fibres, textile muscle fibres and ionofibres.
