Textiles that warm

Textiles processed with silver-plated Shieldex yarns and surfaces can be used in a wide variety of applications for heatable applications.

For example, Shieldex has already been incorporated into heatable undergarments. The heat generated by electrical resistance has a beneficial effect on back and neck pain and tension. Due to the flexible textile, the clothing is heated evenly- aches are alleviated and muscles are relaxed by the heat.

The special advantage over comparable heat treatments with ointments and plasters, which promote blood circulation and relieve pain, is the textile structure of Shieldex materials. The 99.9% pure silver in the processed textiles is friendly on the skin, anti-odor and washable in the final product.

Shieldex Think Tank

We are always working on new developments. Because of the diversity of our yarns and surfaces metallized with silver, nickel, tin and copper, our textiles can be incorporated into many products and applications that need to heat, light, warm and shield. Shieldex is a successful global technology leader in the silver plating of polyamide 6 and 6.6.

Would you like to know what other applications are possible with our products?

Our Shieldex Think Tank focuses on future-oriented topics and ideas that are possible with Shieldex materials. Our focus is on B2B as well as on research and development of new products. You have the idea - we have the solution.

Please note that we are not a manufacturer or supplier of finished sensors or the like.

Textiles that glow

Wearers of luminous textiles have a significant advantage: they are visible at day and night time. Luminous textiles are particularly suitable for cyclists. Smart jackets not only illuminate the front and back, but by raising the arm the jacket acts as a turn signal to inform drivers of a direction change. Shieldex can be incorporated into the jackets as an electronic conductor. Because of their textile structure, the silver-plated yarns have a significant advantage over conventional cables. They are lightweight, flexible and washable.
