Abstract: A polymer soft actuator is under investigation using a poly urethane elastomer film that bends by means of an applied voltage, which is based on the electrostriction. Bending experiments were performed under different metal electrodes deposited the both sides of the film. Even if the thickness of the both electrodes is the same, the metal of the both electrodes is desirable to be the same to bend more. It is suggested that the balance of the physical properties of the both metal is critical for larger bending.

“…Polyurethane (PU) is a thermoplastic polymer with good mechanical properties, such as high flexibility and low density. Some types of PU are dielectric elastomers that exhibit electrostrictive strain, i.e., the ability to produce large fieldinduced strain when exposed to an electric field [1], which makes them suitable materials for soft actuation [2], [3], [4].…”
