- IPMC, thickness, tip force, displacement.
- The IPMCs with various thicknesses were manufactured by a hot-pressed method and their actuations in terms of tip force and displacement when being reused with different treatments were investigated. Three selected treatments are no treatment, treatment in deionized water or 2M NaCl solution. To achieve the great tip force and displacement when the IPMCs were reused, no treatment is a better way for the thin 1-film, and treatment in NaCl solution for the 2- and 4-films. For the thick 6-film, treatment in 2 M NaCl is appropriate to achieve the great tip force and treatment in deionized water to achieve the great displacement.
