Abstract

A coating having a selectable anisotropic electrical conduction proper is achieved by dispersing conducting particles or cells in a compressable medium. When the coating is compressed, preferably in the direction of its thickness, the conducting particles are brought closer together in a localized area and an increase in conductivity results.
