This conductive material (also known as "Velostat" or "Linqstat") is a nice addition for your wearable/sensor hacking toolkit. It's pressure-sensitive: squeezing it will reduce the resistance, so it's handy for making flexible sensors. And it's a lot less expensive than off-the-shelf pressure or bend sensors too! Each order comes with a 11"x11" (28cm x 28cm) 4mil (0.1mm) thick piece. We may fold the sheet into quarters to ship it to you.

Please Note: To remove any hard creases, simply lay flat on a table and put a heavy book on top to flatten it out.

  • Dimensions: 11" x 11" (280mm x 280mm)
  • Thickness: 4mil (0.1mm)
  • Weight: 18.66g
  • Temperature Limits: -45°C to 65°C (-50°F to 150°F)
  • Heat Sealable: Yes
  • Volume Resistivity: <500 ohm-cm
  • Surface Resistivity: < 31,000 ohms/sq.cm

When using Velostat with an external controller additional components will be required. We would suggest using the Velostat as part of a potential divider.
