I am very new to this site and this is my first ever question. I want to know what is this black material in this sensor film kit. I am creating a weight sensor by using this very sensor kit. Now I am short of this black film. I want to purchase it now locally but do not know the composition of this material. This material behaves as a resistance between two aluminium foil, just to inform. If any one can help me in this.
It's called a force sensing resistor. It's basically a film of small conductive particles mixed into a non-conductive polymer matrix on top of a conductive substrate. The more force on the film, the more conductive particles can touch the layer underneath, reducing the resistance. Sensitronics owns the original patent for the technology and their site shows how they're constructed, though you'll probably have to dig up the patent to find out exactly what's in the force sensing layer.
