Sendance – permeable impedance sensors

Welcome to the homepage of sendance, the creators of permeable impedance sensors. Our sensors
– can be emedded in concrete, glue, varnish during drying
– do not disturb the mechanical properties of the surrounding medium
– can measure drying and hardening processes in their immediate surrounding
– stay in the final construction to detect humidity, corrosion or mechanical faults

sendance is a spin-off from the LIT Soft Materials Lab at Johannes Kepler University Linz. We are a team of highly skilled and motivated people with a long time experience in the field. Our goal is to find valuable solutions for our customers to form lasting and profitable partnerships.
