RF Shielded Pouches

RF Shielded Pouches, stop the Hacks!

RF Shielded Pouches, stop the Hacks!  RF Shielded pouches have been used to secure data for years.  Police, Diplomatic, and Military agencies use them routinely to securely transport electronic devices.  The pouches prevent RF access to the devices by creating a "Faraday Cage" around the device.  A Faraday Cage is a metal cage that will block an electromagnetic field from entering the boundaries of the cage. These pouches will block entry of WiFi, 5G, and electromagnetic pulses.  Wireless devices utilize...
Conductive Velcro

What is Conductive Velcro? What is Conductive Velcro used for?

What is Conductive Velcro? What is Conductive Velcro and How is it used?  Conductive Hook and Loop is the same product that we all know as Velcro, the only difference being is that it is made electrically conductive by coating the small hooks and loops that make it up with a conductive metal.  The conductive metal used in Shieldex® Conductive Hook and Loop is 99% pure Silver.  Silver is the best metal conductor of electricity. What is Conductive Hook and Loop...
Shielding More Important than Ever

Conductive Textiles, What are they and what are their Uses?

Conductive Textiles, What are they and What are their Uses? A conductive textile is a fabric, thread, or fastener that conducts electricity.  Conductive textiles consist of a less conductive fiber or fabric that is made conductive by being coated with electrically conductive elements.  These elements are often Silver, Copper, Nickel, and titanium.  These elements are plated, embedded, or coated onto the less conductive substrate.  These substrates typically include polyester and Nylon.  These fabrics, threads, and yarns are highly conductive and...

Faraday Bags Protect Information!

Faraday Bags Protect Information, what are they and how do they work? Faraday Bags Protect Information.  Faraday Bags are bags/pouches fabricated of Metalized Conductive Textiles.  When closed, these pouches do not allow electromagnetic fields or waves to cross their boundaries, based on the research of Michael Faraday in 1836.  Our electronic devices transfer information wirelessly using RF radiation.  When the devices are placed in  Faraday Bags/Pouches, RF transmission is blocked by the Faraday Effect.  This includes both incoming information and...

Infrared Detection, the Good and the Bad, and How to Avoid it!

 What is Infrared Detection? Infrared Detection is using heat as a method of finding someone or something.  The the infrared sensor/camera picks up the infrared heat signature of a person or object, which is be stronger or weaker than their surroundings.  This makes the human being or object "distinct" from its surroundings, essentially locating the human being or object. What is Good about IR Detection? One good thing about infrared detection is the use of this technology in finding people lost in...

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...

We Live in “Testing Times”, Make Your Testing Times Accommodate Your Schedule!

Students returning to school this Fall aren't the only ones who will have to prepare for rigorous testing to see if they meet the educational standards required of them to advance to the next level!  Companies that have been shut down during the pandemic are coming back to life, and hopefully, producing lots of new and different electronic devices that will be coming into the marketplace in various areas such as the aerospace, automotive, electronic, medical, along with military...

Want to Keep your Servers Free from Unwanted Intrusion? Put them in an RF Shielded Rack Enclosure!

A business stores a lot of valuable and sensitive information on its servers, hopefully, they also have firewalls and antivirus/antimalware software in place to prevent hacking the system through the internet connection.  An offsite encrypted backup also helps to take away some of the risk of a ransomware attack.  Improving digital security is part of the never ending chess game between today's digital criminal and computer security developers.  One new way of accessing a company's most sensitive information is...

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...

Digital Criminal Evidence-There is Proper Security Protocol for Keeping Digital Evidence Admissible in Court, Let Us Help You Handle Your Evidence Securely!

Despite the amazing amount of great evidentiary material that Forensic Sciences can provide, the care and treatment of evidence seized while in Law Enforcement custody can affect whether this persuasive information gathered through investigation will ever be presented in court or will be tossed out as "inadmissible in court".  We all remember the O. J. Simpson trial, where "gold standard DNA evidence" was not allowed to be used as evidence in the trial due to a break in the...
