Shieldex® woven fabrics act as technical textiles in the field of textile conductive paths, sensors and the shielding of electromagnetic radiation. Due to their low weight, the woven fabrics are worked into various technical products as EMC shielding materials – including in our shielded tents and shielding pouches.
Shieldex® nonwovens finished with silver, copper, nickel or tin are used, among other things, in military and medical applications. Other possible applications can be found in the technical field and in the shielding of electromagnetic waves. Compared to woven and knitted fabrics, nonwovens are relatively thin.
Thanks to the antimicrobial effect of silver, the knitted fabrics from Shieldex® are particularly well-suited to medical applications. They are used as wound dressings, in veterinary medicine, for skin conditions and in prosthetics and sensor technology.
