The Types, Properties, and Applications of Conductive Textiles

Book Description

This book provides basic knowledge about the principles, roles, types and evaluation methods of antistatic and conductive textile materials, which are used for protection against charge dissipation, incendiary discharge, intense electrostatic fields and electromagnetic interference (EMI). It also discusses the basic properties of different types of conductive fibers and filaments and the manufacturing processes of conductive textile products. Although such materials are typically produced as shields against charge dissipation and EMI, they are also used in other special applications, such as sensors, antennas, flexible heaters, and specialized apparel.

The book will be useful for students, pedagogues and other academics. It will also be of interest to the general reader who wants to expand their knowledge of the applications and properties of conductive textiles.

Sandra Varnaitė-Žuravliova is a Senior Researcher at the Center for Physical Sciences and Technology (FTMC), Lithuania. She defended her thesis “Investigation of Electrostatic Properties of Textiles with Conductive Yarns” at Kaunas University of Technology, Lithuania, in 2011. In 2014, she was granted a scholarship from the Erasmus Exchanges Support Foundation for a postdoctoral fellowship at Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia. She is a member of TK21, the Technical Committee of Lithuanian Standards Board, and she is included in the expert database of the Agency for Science, Innovation and Technology (MITA). She is a co-author of several book chapters, and has also published her research in various international journals. Her main research areas are conductive textiles, and electrostatic and electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding.
