Conductive fabrics are created by blooming silver onto a nylon rip-stop material and then plating other metals onto the silver to give a durable, flexible, highly conductive material that can be used for shielding and screening. Materials can be supplied in sheet form, as a yarn or as a sewing thread, or as finished product such as a Seizure Vault for protecting the data on a mobile phone or smartphone, or as a large shelter where items such as a phone or a laptop can be interrogatred without exposure to the outside electromagnetic world. Shelters can be large enough to shield large military platforms and are available for protection up to Tempest standards.
Resistive fabrics are available from 10 ohms to infinity allowing their use as components of Radar Absorbing Materials (RAM), as materials to heat with out the associated issues with wires etc, or as sensors able to measure the changes in resistance as loads are applied.
Any fabric can be made conductive using the Eeonyx process, provided it cannot be dissolved in water, and fabrics such as fibreglass, nonwovens, cotton, etc can be treated either to make them antistatic, or conductive.
