The aim of the research project is to develop innovative piezo-electric multi-component yarns with a movable core-sheath structure and thus increased flexibility, resistance and reliability for sensory textile materials. In contrast to previous research endeavours to produce piezo yarns with a concentric structure, these should have a particularly high textile (flexible and pliable) character and be able to be further processed into textile surfaces. To this end, the yarns based on the piezoelectric polymer polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) are to be produced for the first time using a combination of different braiding processes instead of the bicomponent melt spinning process. The piezo yarns are to be evaluated in functional samples with regard to their applicability.
