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.

can v get a meter of this fabric ???


  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Wednesday, 31 August 2016

    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.

We are interested in your product, but would you mind tell me more about the resistance of this knit (Product Code: 2717)? for example, how about the original resistance and the change of resistance when it is stretched (ohm/cm)?


  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Tuesday, 23 August 2016

    Hi Nickie, 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, and the sheet resistance is < 1 ohm/sq. Unfortunately we don’t have any further information on the resistance of the material.

also need bigger pieces. please advise when you can supply 800 x 600 mm. most urgent, or; any advice on stitching two pieces together with conductive thread? thanks, Barry


  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Wednesday, 4 May 2016

    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.

hi if i sew with the conductive fabric will i have to use conductive thread or normail thead thanks ed


  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Thursday, 24 September 2015

    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.

Is this fabric available in lager pieces - something like 2ft x 4ft


  • Posted by Aaron Sturman on Friday, 5 September 2014
    Hi, unfortunately at the moment this is the only size we have. We are currently looking into expanding this range with larger pieces though.
