Conductive Textiles

I’m not “Just Spinning you a Yarn”, Shieldex®Yarns and Threads are the Best!

Shieldex Yarns are the most versatile yarns not only due to the anti-static, anti-odor properties, but for their high electrical and thermal conductivity as well.  These silver plated polyamide yarns can be used in the same fashion as non-coated yarns for twisting, warp-knitting, weft-knitting, embroidery, weaving and spinning.  Due to the conductivity of silver, these yarns can be used as a conductor in sensors, for the manufacture of clothing, home textiles, as well as "smart textiles".  The yarns are...

What can Metalized Textiles do for You? Your Imagination is the only Limit!

Since the founding of V Technical Textiles, Inc., it has been the world's single largest distributor of electrically conductive fabrics and notions.  Many people have no idea what metalized textiles are used for.  When they first came out, metalized textiles were used largely in electrical manufacturing in the aerospace, automotive, electronics industries as ESD carpeting, EMI shielded gaskets and quickly evolved into shielding materials in electronic devices to stop RF Interference from affecting the proper function of these sensitive...

RF Protective Suit, Protection for 5G Workers, Microwave Workers and Maintenance Personnel!

Most of us know that we are surrounded by RF radiation all of the time.  This radiation is of the non-ionizing variety, meaning that it lacks the energy to damage the DNA of a cell and cause mutations.  RF is routinely absorbed by the body and the effects of this absorption are called "thermal effects", basically much as a microwave oven can heat water, RF radiation can rapidly warm the body.  The eyes and the testes are most vulnerable...

RF Shielded Faraday Bags and Pouches, use Military Grade Technology to Protect Sensitive Digital Information Stored on your Electronic Devices!!

For years, the Military, the Police, and the Government agencies have been aware of the need to secure sensitive information and communication equipment such as phones and computers, that can be accessed by WiFi or other wireless means.  Whether it was done by use of a specialized room called a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF, pronounced "skiff"), or by placing the devices in Faraday Bags and Pouches.  In the legal system, it is commonplace for computers, phones, and other...

CubeSats, the Smallest Members of the Satellite Family

NASA has announced a Cube Satellite Launch Initiative (CSLI) recently, making it possible for a private company to propose a Cube Satellite (CubeSat) mission that will be deployed in space by a NASA booster that has space available on it for more cargo than it is scheduled to take into space.  In very simple terms, a CSLI means that NASA will "cover the cost" of putting your CubeSat mission into orbit in exchange for a report on the results...

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...
