Inkjet printing is widely being researched as enabling technology for printed electronics; however, there are scarce publications concerning the reliability of inkjet-printed structures on different substrates. The reliability of such structures under high humidity and high temperature conditions is treated in this work. To do so, the adhesion and resistivity of printed structures on PET, Rogers, PI and FR-4 materials are studied before and after a moisture resistance test. The samples present average resistivity values in the range of 12-106 μΩ·cm and only one specimen of the Rogers sample fails the reliability test. The Rogers sample presents perfect adhesion characteristics, the adhesion can be improved for the rest of the samples, especially for the PI sample. The general performance of inkjet-printed structures on different substrate materials is good.
