  • About metallised conductive fabric materials

    Conductive fabric materials consist of highly conductive metals combined with lightweight fabric. They have the flexibility, conformability and breathability of a fabric with the electrical properties of a metal, providing low surface and through reisistivity and excellent shielding effectiveness.

    Whether used as an architectural shielding product to shield complete rooms, or as a shielding material in EMI gaskets, tapes and shield laminates, conductive fabric materials provide a highly effective shielding system that is cost effective and easily applied.

    Conductive fabric characteristics:

    • Excellent surface conductivity, shielding effectiveness and corrosion resistance
    • Available in a range of thicknesses
    • High temperature resistance
    • Available in various woven and non-woven polyester or nylon substrate configurations

  • Customising your conductive fabric

    Utilising the latest converting technologies, we can customise conductive fabric materials to create non-standard roll widths and lengths, or convenient and easy to handle components. Customisation offers a number of benefits, including cost savings and enhanced product design. Whatever your needs, we have the experience and capabilities to provide a complete solution, from design and prototyping to full production and automated assembly.
