Anti-Radiation Clothing

Top Five Reasons for Wearing Anti-Radiation Clothing!

You may have heard of Anti-Radiation Clothing... and the exposures that it deals with are certainly getting more prevalent.. This guide will help you understand what it is and why it is becoming increasingly necessary: 1. Protection from the "Natural Environment" Believe it or not, today's "Natural Environment" is more full of naturally generated Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) than ever! EMR is produced naturally by the sun, our atmosphere (the auroras), and the earth itself as low level electromagnetic fields.  Unless we...
Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity-help is hard to find, but it’s Available!

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity-help is hard to find, but it's available!  For years, some individuals have reported a wide range of non-specific health problems that they attribute to low-level exposure to electromagnetic fields, (EMF).  The symptoms include:  headaches, body pain, lethargy, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), nausea, burning sensation, heart arrhythmia, and anxiety.  The World Health Organization (WHO) said that "no adverse health effects have been established as being caused by mobile phone use".  The WHO, along with the International Agency...
Home Shielding

Home Shielding is Smart, Protect your Family from RF Exposure!

Home Shielding is Smart, Protect your Family from RF Exposure!  RF Radiation is more prevalent than ever in today's world.  There are many sources of this, some natural, many human generated.  We live in a world with many electronic devices.  Every device adds to the E-Smog that surrounds us. Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS), is a clinical syndrome characterized by the presence of a wide spectrum of non-specific symptoms.  These symptoms include:  headaches, body pain, lethargy, tinnitus, burning sensation, heart arrhythmia,...

Silver is the Best Thermal Conductive Element, Creating Comfort!

Silver is the best thermal conductive element, creating comfort!  Silver's thermal conductivity accounts for a great benefit provided by fabrics that are made with silver containing yarns and fabrics.  This property is measured in Watts per meter per degree Kelvin, W/M°K.  The high thermal conductivity of Silver is due to its electron configuration!  Silver's electrons are are "loosely held" due to its low nuclear charge.  This allows them to move more easily, resulting in efficient energy transfer.  The energy...

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...

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...

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...

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...
