FLEXIBLE LAMINATE

ALT TECHNOLOGIES B.V., U...

1. A flexible laminate, comprising:
an electrically non-conductive substrate with a substantially planar configuration,
an electrically conductive element arranged on and along a surface of the electrically non-conductive substrate, and
a layer arranged on and along a surface of the electrically nonconductive substrate,
wherein the electrically conductive element is elongate and has an external cross-sectional contour delimiting a cross-sectional
area of the electrically conductive element,

wherein the electrically non-conductive substrate, the electrically conductive element and the layer are coaxially punctured
along a puncture direction through the surface of the electrically non-conductive substrate, thereby forming a punctured region,

wherein the electrically non-conductive substrate, the electrically conductive element and the layer are connected to each
other through a mechanical connection means which extends substantially along the puncture direction through the electrically
non-conductive substrate, the electrically conductive element and the layer at said punctured region,

and wherein the cross-sectional area of the electrically conductive element at the location of the punctured region is larger
than the cross-sectional area of the electrically conductive element outside the punctured region.

FLEXIBLE ELECTRICAL CONDUCTOR DEVICE

ALT Technologies B.V., U...

1. A flexible conductor device, comprising an electrically insulating flexible carrier substrate and an electrical conductor arranged on said electrically insulating flexible carrier substrate, wherein the electrical conductor is defined by at least one circuit which forms a meandering trajectory extending between opposite circuit terminals, wherein said electrically insulating flexible carrier substrate is provided with at least two cut-outs, said cut-outs extending through a full thickness of said electrically insulating flexible carrier substrate, wherein said cut-outs are located outside an area of said electrically insulating flexible carrier substrate where the electrical conductor is arranged,wherein said cut-outs delineate edges of said electrically insulating flexible carrier substrate, said edges bordering on both opposite lateral edges of said circuit so that said electrically insulating flexible carrier substrate forms strips that follow said circuit along said meandering trajectory.
