Conductive Textiles

What is TPU Wire? What is TPU Wire used for?

What is TPU Wire? The answer is simple.  TPU "wire" is really a silver metalized yarn coated with Thermoplastic PolyUrethane (TPU) as an insulator.  We usually think of "wire" as a solid metal cylinder that carries current.  In this case, the silver metalized yarn has all of the conductive properties of a wire due to silver's excellent conductivity, except that it isn't solid and due to the textile properties of a yarn, it can flex easily.  This flexibility makes the...

“Hardening Structures”-Protecting our Country’s Vital Electronics-Based Systems!

ElectroMagnetic Pulses (EMPs), transient electromagnetic disturbances, evoke the Orwellian thoughts of nuclear explosions that are capable of short-circuiting a wide range of electronic equipment, including computers, satellites, radios, radar receivers, and even traffic lights, plunging the world into the "electronic dark ages".  Though a nuclear weapon is the most commonly thought of cause of an EMP, they can also be caused by solar flares, a close lightning strike, or a massive powerline short circuit.  The damage to electrical equipment...

Silverized Fabrics, Comfortable to Wear and Beneficial to Your Health as Well!!

V Technical Textiles, Inc. provides a line of clothing made with Silverized knits and fabrics.  These conductive metalized textiles make the clothing more comfortable, as the silver is a great conductor of heat.  This conductivity spreads the natural body heat that it absorbs throughout the surface of the garment, creating an even and balanced body temperature, lessening the presence of "hot spots and cold spots", and making the wearer feel more comfortable.  This "balancing" of the body temperature increases...

5G-What’s the Latest Information on how it will Affect our Health?

The coming of 5G has had many people worried about "how will all of that RF radiation affect my health?" since its rollout in 2018.  The concern about cell phones in general and their radiation emission has increased over the years, as people spend more time on them and near them than ever before.  The FCC developed the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) in 1996, at a time when the cell phone was just a phone.  The SAR reflected the...
