A conductive fabric is a technical fabric that possesses electrically or heat-conductive properties.
They are mainly used to connect electronic components that enable the transmission of energy and electricity in devices. They are made from different non-conductive materials that provide strength and flexibility, and others such as graphite, which are conductive. Being tough and flexible, they provide greater freedom of movement and durability compared to other more common materials.
These fabrics can be used to protect against electric shocks during the handling process, so they can be used in applications such as the manufacture of conductive gloves, protective clothing against electric shocks, touch screens and flexible cables, among others. Also, they can be used in the manufacture of non-conventional devices such as smartwatches and wristbands.
