Personal/Home Shielding reduces EMI Exposure!

Personal/Home Shielding reduces EMI Exposure!

Personal/Home Shielding reduces EMI Exposure!  In today's wireless world, we endure constant exposure to RF waves.  Though there is no absolute proof of health risks due to RF wave exposure, there is certainly concern regarding exposure.  EHS (Electromagnetic HyperSensitivity), the name given to EMI sensitivity, involves nervous system symptoms.   Symptoms include headaches, fatigue, stress, sleep disturbances, and skin irritation among many others.   Many sufferers of EHS claim that their symptoms decline when they shield themselves from RF/EMI exposure.  Personal Shielding...
Cotton and Silver Together make Great Clothing!

Cotton and Silver Together make Great Clothing!

Cotton and Silver Together make Great Clothing!  We all know cotton is a natural fabric, planted in the spring and harvested in the fall.  Cotton is very versatile; it can be woven in a variety of thicknesses to change its feel.  It is incredibly strong, which helps your clothing last longer.  Incredibly, cotton gets stronger when it is wet, allowing washing, losing dirt without losing its shape!  Cotton is non-allergenic, making it terrific for those with sensitive skin.  Additionally, it...
Metallized Textiles

Metalized Textiles-What are their Uses?

Metalized Textiles-What are their Uses?  Metalized textiles were first used in various Shielding Applications.  I can remember when an automobile FM radio mainly played static!  Metalized textiles played a major role in protecting the radio from RFI from the other electronic components in the vehicle.  The antenna brought in shielded clean signals to the RF shielded radio which were sent out to the speakers, allowing the music to be heard as it was meant to be heard.  The RF shielding...

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...
