PVDF piezo polymers are new, valuable materials for sensing and actuating applications. These materials are strong candidates for new sensors that cannot be realised with piezoceramics or single crystals. The combination of the mechanical properties of a plastic material with those of a piezoelectric material led to new sensors and transducers whose design is not easy. For this reason, the characteristics and properties of piezo polymer are described as well as basic knowledge that engineers need for technical use.
