Technical Fabrics

SHIELDEX® metallized conductive nylon fabrics provide vast flexibility for many different applications. The fabrics are plated throughout with 99% pure silver. Additional coatings such as copper, nickel, and tin can be applied depending on the field of use. The applications for plated fabrics are endless, some examples include RF shielding, medical, electrical, and sensing to name a few. We also offer metallized conductive polyester fabric which are listed below as our LX fabrics.

Woven Fabrics 

These are available in both a basic plain weave (PW) which is strong and durable, and a rip stop weave (RS) that is reinforced to resist tearing.

Non-Woven Fabrics 

Non-woven fabrics are made from long fibers and bonded together. Metals used are Silver (Ag), Copper (Cu), Nickel (Ni) and Tin (Sn) in various combinations. Additional available coatings provide solutions for corrosion protection, enhanced EMI shielding effectiveness, and/or environmental concerns.

Medical Fabrics

Medical fabrics are offered in various weights and textures including both knits, and elastic knits with single (SD) or double direction DS) stretch as well as some woven forms. These fabrics are usually silver plated only, with 99% silver (Ag). Medical fabrics are available with an anti-tarnish coating (+B). Silver is a natural antimicrobial treatment that limits the infections from bacteria for human and veterinarian purposes.

Technical Fabrics

Technical fabrics are our conductive silver knitted fabrics with elastic that come in a single direction (SD) or double direction (DS) stretch. While these fabrics can be used in the same applications as our medical fabrics, Technical fabrics are generally used for applications that require a higher conductivity like smart wear. Applications include; sensors (vital signs, stimulation of nerves and muscles, etc.), EMI shielding, and reflection to name a few.

Mesh Fabrics

Mesh fabrics are knitted mesh which are plated with silver (Ag), additional metals can be added for your custom application. Mesh Fabric applications include but are not limited to, RF shielding for windows, medical garments, composite, antimicrobial purposes, resistance heating, and automotive or aerospace applications where a light weight mesh is needed.
