Experimantal techniques for measuring piezoelectric coefficient d33 of screen printed thick-film lead zirconate totanate (PZT) pastes are described, together with a comparison of these values for different paste formulations. In particular, the effect of type and concentration of the binder has been observed. Concentrations of between 0 and 30% binder by weight have been analysed for two different binders, lead (II) oxide and lead borosilicate. The results show that sensors utilising the piezoelectric effect of pzt have a greater sensitivity if formulated with a lead(II) oxide binder.
