Introduction

Highly conductive composite yarns capable of leading away electrostatic charges and conducting transmissions.

Coats Conductive Yarns can be used in a wide range of end uses including, static dissipation, electromagnetic shielding, resistive heating, and electro-conductive transmission. Through the development of unique, innovative manufacturing processes, Coats is able to meet customer needs and find a perfect solution for all future requirements.

Key Technologies Employed

  • Twisted or covered yarns
  • Spun blended yarns and threads
  • Insulated yarns via a braid, coating or covering system

Sparks

Main Uses

  • Clean Rooms, Hospitals, Filters
  • Microwaves, Cellphones, WIFI
  • Car Seat Systems, Heated Clothing
  • Transfer Power, Main Use
  • Sense Stimuli, Actuate Systems
  • Health / Body sensors
  • Smart textile

Features and Benefits

  • Very low levels of resistivity ideal for static dissipation
  • Use of a coating to allow some conductivity and establish a ‘Faraday Cage’
  • Use of copper and steel for higher resistivity and thus heat generation
  • Differing materials and constructions used to generate conductivity of <10k Ω/m allowing electro conductive transmission
