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.
