Abstract(s)A new method development for surface treatment of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) substrates.The proposed method increases TPU surface energy (by 45%) and consequently the TPU wettability.Great increase of the TPU surface roughness (by 621%).Inkjet printed conductive ink was applied to the surface treated TPU substrate and significant improvements on the printability were obtained.
