Prototype force sensitive resistors were made using powder-filled inks by offset lithography, a high speed printing process. A carbon-based lithographic ink that dries to form a film with a carbon content close to the percolation threshold for electrical conduction was formulated. Silver-filled, electrically conducting ink was prepared for the electrodes and connecting leads. The substrate was white gloss-art A4 paper. The carbon film resistance was 23 kΩ while the combined resistance of electrodes and leads was less than 2Ω. The force sensor was tested by repeated loading and unloading.
