This thermal actuator is made of two identical plastic plates held together by a heat-insulating double-sided adhesive tape. The temperature difference of the two plates is the driving force for the bending. In the near future Giant Thermal Expansion Cellular Materials could significantly increase the temperature sensitivity of this application.
