Stretch conductive fabric

Stretch conductive fabric is coated with a medical silver coating and it's possible to stretch the fabric in both sides.

This conductive fabric is coated with a medical silver coating and has a broad range of applications, since it's possible to stretch the fabric in both sides, and in length even up to 100% it's size. The fabric can be used as an antibacterial wound or burn dressing (note: our material is not sterile) but it also makes a great material for electrode contacts, clothing or other shielded garments. Highly conductive, and conductivity increases up to 25% as it stretches, which is handy for smart textile applications. The silver coating is 99,9% pure.


Benefits

  • The width of the fabric influences the percentage of conductivity
  • The material is very consistent in quality
  • When you stretch the material in length the conductivity increases, when you stretch it in the width it decreases
  • You get around 60% elongation in the width, and almost 100% in the length

Applications

  • "Intelligent" or shielding garments
  • Cable shielding wrap
  • Hobbies or Technology where changing conductivity with stretch is important
