Nottingham Trent University Undergraduates Bring Some Sparkle to Their Textiles Projects
We had the pleasure of seeing and supporting a number of NTU undergraduate E-Textiles projects from the initial designs right through to the final stages. We loved working with the students and are really impressed with the level of detail that went into each design.

    Hi Shiemaa, The only information regarding this product we have is located I n the datasheet and we aren’t able to get a compatibility certificate. I have contacted the supplier to get if this material is suitable for skin contact and they have stated that the fabric is tin/nickel over silver-plated nylon. This is safe for humans to handle; however, skin oils will eventually cause the fabric to oxidize, changing both its colour and conductivity.

    Hi Anne, The conductive fabric is designed to enable you to add e-textiles to a project. There is no indication of this product being able to be used for RFID protection.

    A:

    Hello Dzung, Firstly I would like to apologise for the confusion as this product doesn’t stretch. The product you need to look at if you require it to be stretchy is product 2717. The conductivity the fabric may alter slightly when stretched. We measured around a 10% decrease in conductivity when full stretched.

    A:

    In theory this might work if set up correctly but we can’t be responsible if the system fails, as such we are unable to provide any details regarding this. Homemade equipment could fail at any time and as such this should be kept in mind.

    A:

    Yes it could be used as a switch although it may be better to use Conductive Hook & Loop (Velcro) Strip - 2.5 cm x 10 cm as this will give a better connection. Also the material won’t be affected being in touch with skin.

    Yes it can be washed, however it would be advisable to hand wash the fabric, and then ensure it is completely dry before placing any power through it again

    A: Hi Penny, I'm not sure what you'd want it to do so i can't say if it would be suitable. We only get the fabric in the size listed unfortunately.

    A: Do you mean for grounding yourself electrically? It would do the job if you wired it to a radiator or similar. If you plan on lying on it though the stretch fabric is a lot softer.

    A: The material is conductive and when sewn into the fingers of gloves it lets them work with touch screens. I am not really sure what an iPad drumstick is so i can't comment on the suitability. You'd have to try it to be sure.
