As part of its efforts to forge collaborations with leaders in their respective industries, Liquid X Printed Metals is partnering with Bonbouton to build temperature and pressure sensors directly on textiles using additive manufacturing techniques. Bonbouton, based in New York City, has become a leader in thermal sensing using a smart textile platform.

Through their inkjet-printable graphene technology licensed from the Stevens Institute of Technology, Bonbouton is developing thin and mechanically flexible sensors for wearable physiology monitoring. This gives consumers wearable personal health options that are unobtrusive, comfortable and attractive, while still enabling the collection of accurate, precise and useful data.

"We are excited to be working with Bonbouton, bringing two innovative teams and two innovative technologies together to develop solutions for evolving opportunities in medical applications," said Greg Babe, Liquid X president and chief executive officer. "We're thrilled to partner with Liquid X to complement with our core sensor technology and to initially explore business opportunities in a much-needed wearable medical market," said Linh Le, Bonbouton founder and chief executive officer.

Bill Babe, sales and marketing manager at Liquid X, added, "We believe our strategy of collaboration with other companies taps the collective powers, talents and assets needed to truly drive the printed electronics industry forward. Bonbouton is one of those firms with expert knowledge in sensing technology and a product line very complimentary to our functional inks."

Through this collaboration, Liquid X will use its proprietary particle-free inks to inkjet print interconnects directly on textiles. These interconnects carry signals from a graphene-sensing layer back to device hardware, where the data can be analysed. Liquid X's unique ability to metalise textile fibres reduces steps in the manufacturing process of electronically integrated textiles and employs a low-cost, scalable manufacturing method widely utilised in the textile industry. Linh added, "We have seen many companies trying to claim the durable conductive trace on textiles but the Liquid X technology truly stands out and we share the same passion for the future of printed electronics."

"This collaboration builds on Liquid X's vision of using our functional metallic inks for designing and developing functional components for electronic devices. With the move to our new lab facility in RIDC Park West, we now have a full range of equipment along with the technical expertise necessary to build and test prototypes," said Beth Vasy, vice president of Operations at Liquid X.
