Smart fabrics developed at NPL

NPL has developed a new method to produce conductive textiles. The technique could make integrating electronics into clothing simple and practical, by enabling lightweight circuits to be printed directly onto complete garments.

The nano silver material is chemically bonded to the fabric, encapsulating the fibres and providing full coverage.

The resulting textile is said to demonstrate good adhesion, flexibility and excellent resistivity of 0.2O/sq.
