Conductive Yarns and Threads

Shieldex and VTT-"Family Businesses"

Shieldex and VTT- “Family Businesses”!

Shieldex and VTT-"Family Businesses"!  I was able to interview Robert Erichsen, the CEO of Shieldex recently during his first visit with us in three years.  Shieldex is VTT's European partner, providing us with conductive metalized textiles, that VTT markets and uses in our fabricated products.  The close relationship between Shieldex and V Technical Textiles, Inc. spans many years and is rooted in family and business ties. Robert Erichsen, CEO of Shieldex Randy:  It's been a few years since you've been able to...
Lubricate Thread Eliminate Breaks and Snarling

Lubricate Thread-Eliminate Breaks and Snarling!

Lubricate Thread-Eliminate Breaks and Snarling!  Sewing thread is subject to heat buildup, snarling, static and snagging.  These problems are caused by coarse thread causing friction with the needle.  This friction can result in temperatures as high as 350°C/662°F, resulting in the thread melting and breaking.  The final insult to the thread is its trip through the needle's eye and the fabric, which can also cause filament damage.  Lubrication is important in the reduction of heat in many situations, automobiles, surface...

Rugged Conditions

Rugged Conditions Require Ruggedized Textiles!

Rugged Conditions Require Ruggedized Textiles!  RF Shielded Enclosures are usually located indoors, protecting them from the elements.  The thin conductive textiles used to manufacture enclosures can't stand up well unprotected in extreme conditions.  Wind, rain, and ocean spray can damage or destroy the enclosures very quickly.  The military and law enforcement often need command centers for their activities to be portable and able to stand up to tough conditions.  Lives are at stake in these harsh environments as well as...

Conductive Textiles-What are their uses?

Conductive Textiles-What are their uses?  Conductive Textiles are often used in "technical applications".   VTT markets conductive textiles, meaning an electrical current can pass through them.  That current can be a "message", "data", or part of a circuit.  Metals are great electrical conductors.  The most conductive metal is Silver, followed by Copper and Gold.  Gold is rarely used in conductive textiles due to its cost.  VTT's conductive textiles are primarily plated or coated with Silver, Copper, Nickel, and Tin.  Other specialty...

Supply Chain Slowdown

Supply Chain Slowdown? VTT can Help!

Supply Chain Slowdown? VTT can Help!  CNN Business reports that China is experiencing supply chain slowdown again.  This after global shipping had recently been recovering from the pandemic slowdown.  Shanghai is the world's largest container shipping port.  New Covid lockdowns in China affected Shanghai, resulting in worldwide supply chain delays.  Though the lockdowns are beginning to ease, the delays caused by them are now expected to last into the summer.  These new delays, combined with Russia's invasion of Ukraine, have...
Personal Shielding

Personal Shielding-RF/EMI Shielding!

Personal Shielding-RF/EMI Shielding!  We tend to think of RF/EMI Shielding in the electronics industry.  RF/EMI can affect the function of electronic devices.  Interference can reduce the operational efficiency of electronic devices.  Human beings are also electronic devices.  Many body systems are electronic in nature, potentially disrupted by RF/EMI.  We live in a world with ever-increasing RF/EMI.  Some of this RF/EMI is from nature.  Natural RF/EMI includes lightning, solar magnetic storms, the auroras, and the Earth's magnetic field.  The natural RF/EMI...
