The insulated heating yarns Thermotech "I" (with high temperature resistant insulation)

Properties:
  • Very fine and flexible due to its micro fibers composition.
  • Its relatively small thickness allows the optimization of the thickness of intermediate resin layers, and therefore the weight
  • Maximum electric tension of 380 volts.
  • Maximum temperature is 230°C, which can be withstood thanks to high performance coating (PTFE, MFA, PFA or equivalent).
  • Other properties are similar to the ones of the Thermotech "N".

Thermotech et Conductib isolé

The Conductib conductive yarns

Properties:

  • High conductivity.
  • Great flexibility.
  • These yarns are designed to transfer electric power or data within the flexible structure.
  • High temperature resistant (230°C) insulated version Conductib "I" available.

The resistive heating Thermotech "N" yarns family (non insulated)

The Thermotech yarns are heating metallic yarns with various conductivities: Manufactured from special stainless steel alloys micro-filaments. High fatigue and washing resistance and great flexibility.


  • Semi-resistivity ranges from to 3,6 Ohms/m to 60 Ohms/m.
  • Constant conductivity with or without mechanical stress.
  • Very good flexibility which makes small bending radius possible within textiles or composite parts.
  • High fatigue resistance.
  • High mechanical strength.
  • High temperature resistant: up to 600°C, or even more when they are protected from oxidation (neutral environment).
  • Outstanding performances for RFID applications, with a very good resistance to industrial washings.
  • Suitable for cutting Polystyrene or other thermoplastic materials.
  • Great resistance to sweat, oxidation, salty water and industrial washing.

The non-insulated heating Thermotech "NW" yarns (protected by a binder)

Thermotech NW are Thermotech N wires protected by an outside protecting synthetic thread layer that allow easier subsequent textiles of RFID processes:
They remain conductive on surface and allow cross conductivity in cas of yarns crossing in weaving, knitting or embroidery.

Condustretch and Thermostretch: elastic narrow ribbons with integrated conductive or heating wires

Narrow elastic ribbon Condustretch are perfectly adapted to sensor connexions, data or energy transfers within washable or composite parts:
  • Can help to pre-position the connections within thermoplastic flat parts which will later undergo thermoforming or press-forming.
  • A version exists with several conductive yarns in parallel which makes a data bus elastic in all directions (contrary to "flex" electronics circuits).
  • They are well adapted to sport or medical clothes or for robotics.
  • Specific versions with controlled elongation are adapted to strain monitoring.
  • Connection within washable clothes is one of the main applications of the Condustretch.

Thermostretch heating elastic ribbons are similar to Condustretch but adapted to heating applications:
  • "N" non insulated or "I" insulated versions exist.
  • Designed for low voltage (3 to 24 volts).
  • Can easily be integrated within clothes or other flexible heating structures.

Silverpam: silver grafted conductive yarns

Silverpam is a family of antistatic threads based on 99% pure silver alloy grafted on a polyamide base material:
  • A good elongation at break associated to high electrical conductivity leads to an easy use in most of textiles transformation processes.
  • Can also be easily used in knitting, weaving or braiding, to knit or weave conductive , antistatic or EMS shielding fabrics.
  • Note: for demanding E.M. Shielding applications, multi-layers or 3D technologies can dissipate further the energy of the input signal.
  • Avoid whitening and oxidizing washing agents.

Different versions:

  • Silverpam 95 dtex: resistivity +-600 Ohms/m
  • Silverpam 95X3 dtex: resistivity +-200 Ohms/m
  • Silverpam 250 dtex: resistivity +- 260 Ohms/m
  • Silverpam superstretch :New silverpam version associating high stretch and very good conductivity: up to sixty percent of elongation and only 120 ohms per meter in stretched form!
    Please question us!

Remark: SILVERPAM conductive threads family can often be used with embroidery machines as ZSK or TAJIMA by example for SMART textiles applications.
