Heating or conductive metallic yarns and ribbons

Semi-resistive heating Thermotech wires

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.
  • "N" non insulated and "I" insulated versions exist.

The non-insulated heating Thermotech "N" yarns

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

  • 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".

The Conductib conductive yarns


  • 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.

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.
