Metalized yarns are flexible metals which are woven or bonded to various other fibers.

metalized_yarnsMetalized yarns are either yarn made from thinly drawn metals (gold, silver, nitinol, stainless steel, nickel, etc.) flexible enough to be woven, or yarns that have been metalized through the bonding of a metal to the yarn. Typical examples of metalized yarns are silver (X-static® fiber) or copper bonded to nylon. Micro-Coax, Inc. manufactures ARACON® metal clad fiber from DuPont™ KEVLAR® bonding metal directly to the aramid fiber in nickel-plated and silver-plated finishes.”

Metalized yarn properties include:
  • Antimicrobal
  • Static dissipation
  • Shielding from electromagnetic force (EMF)
  • Shielding from radiation
  • Shape retention
  • Conductivity

Because of the wide variety of metalized fibers available, technical data is not available.  Please contact our design engineers for specific information on a particular metal.
