Yarns/Threads

Yarns / Threads

Thanks to its anti-static and anti-bacterial properties as well as their high electrical and thermal conductivity SHIELDEX ® yarns are most versatile.

YarnThreadHorizSilver plated polyamide yarns can be used just like non-coated yarns for twisting, warp- and weft-knitting, embroidering, weaving and spinning. They are used among many other things as a conductor in sensors, for the manufacture of clothing and home textiles as well as smart textiles. SHIELDEX ® silver yarns are available as monofilament, multifilament and twisted yarns.

Everywhere where tear-resistant yarns are particularly needed, our silver-coated SHIELDEX® Twisted Yarns are used. They are used by our customers among others in the Smart Textiles sector. Also the automotive industry benefits in a variety of ways from the anti-static and electrically conductive qualities of our twines. Some of our silverized yarns are twisted with a non-conductive yarn such as PET.

Many of our yarns have high conductivity (HC) and an anti-tarnish coating (B). The premium yarns have the best lineal resistance.

Yarns are sold by the weight. To better understand the described yarns, an example would be of our 117/17 dtex 2 ply – the 117 is the weight in dtex. If it is a 2 ply you would multiply the weight of 117 x 2 = 234dtex total weight before the silver plating. The 17 is the number of filaments.

Staple Fiber and Flock

Our SHIELDEX® Fibers can be easily mixed with all other natural and synthetic fibers and are thus particularly versatile in their application possibilities. They are used in clothing and home textiles – for example in fitted carpets to prevent static charging in aircraft or offices. Strengths and cut lengths can be produced as desired by our customers.
