    A: Hello Wassim, The resistance of the fabric doesn’t alter much, we measured around a 10% difference from when the material was stretched to when it was under no strain. The surface resistance on average is <5Ohms/sq. The material should be able to detect low current passing through as normally it would be used is low current circuits. Unfortunately we don’t have a graph with the required information and the only datasheet we have been provided is this one, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/pdf/2717-Conductive-Fabric-Stretch.pdf.

    Hi Fathima, Unfortunately we are unable to get this material in this length, this is the only size our supplier provides. You would however be able to combine multiple pieces together to create a larger piece.

    A:

    We currently are unable to obtain the conductive fabric in a larger size. However you would be able to connect two pieces together, as long as they were tightly held together the fabric would conduct. You could use normal thread, conductive thread or even conductive Velcro to secure the pieces together.

    A:

    The conductive fabric can be used to connect components together, however you would need to connect the components to the conductive fabric using the conductive thread.

    A: Hi, unfortunately at the moment this is the only size we have. We are currently looking into expanding this range with larger pieces though.

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.
