SILVER JERSEY KNIT FABRIC
Our Most Human-Friendly Shielding Fabric
Silver Jersey Knit Fabric is an amazing fabric with a little bit of one-way stretch and so many unique characteristics:
Washable, comfortable, and safe for skin contact
One side is almost all silver and has very high conductivity (~2 Ohm per sq)
Other side is almost all cotton and has low conductivity (~109 Ohm per sq). But when you press it, the conductivity increases!
Shields RF 40-50dB over at least 10MHz to 4GHz
Mottled light gray color on the cotton side, silver color on the other side
Knit so there is some one-way stretch.
Cuts and sews like normal fabric.
Perfect for making T-shirts, caps, and undergarments. Silver provides great shielding and eliminates odors. Anti-static. Great for bedding and curtains. Uniquely suitable for smart devices, switches and smart clothing due to variable conductivity with pressure. (Little or no change in conductivity due to stretch).

Because we offer so many different fabrics, of different widths, the easiest way to order is by specifying how long the piece of fabric will be. We describe the length of the fabric purchased in linear feet. So, for example, if you order 22 linear feet of a material, you will get a piece that is 22 feet long x the width of the material. The width of each material is listed near the end of the product description.

Can't decide which fabric is right for your application? Want to see and feel the fabrics before you decide? In this booklet you get swatches of each fabric, along with specifications and application suggestions. Swatches are approximately 2 inches. Ni/Cu/Co tape, Threads, Hook & Loop, and Copper Wire Mesh not included in standard sampler, so if you need these, be sure to specify. If you need larger pieces for your testing, you can order as little as 1 linear foot of any material (see above).
Booklet includes a coupon worth $25 towards any fabric from our line. Good for 1 year.
