A new material, called synthetic rubber in this paper, is proposed as a material for artificial muscle actuator based on dielectric elastomer. The presented material displays enhanced electrical as well as mechanical characteristics in terms of higher dielectric constant, elastic strength and lower stress relaxation. Several experiments are performed to evaluate actuation performance of the material. Also, its advantages are proved by conducting comparative studies with the other existing materials.
