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.

  •  

  • Generally available from stock, the insulate Thermotech heating yarns are available for the following resistivity :

    • 3,6 ohm/m

    • 4,6 ohm/m

    • 7,0 ohm/m

    • 9,0 ohm/m

    • 14,0 ohm/m

    • 30,0 ohm/m

    • 60,0 ohm/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 wires are in fact Thermotech N wires, that are protected by an synthetic warping 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. The CONDUCTIB insulated wires are available in the following resistivity range :

  • Thermotech NW14 14,0 ohm/m

  • Thermotech NW30 30,0 ohm/m

  • Thermotech NW60 60,0 ohm/m

Silverpam : silver grafted conductive yarns

Silverpam is a family of antistatic threads based on 99% pure silver alloy grafted on a polyamide base material :
An example of application : Make your gloves tactile easily ! Sew a small conductive dot on your glove index with the Silverpam 290 !

 

  • 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 +-800 Ohms/m

  • Silverpam 290 dtex : 3 ply , Z twist, resistivity +-285 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.
