This is a Ripstop Conductive-knit Fabric for use in E-Textiles. It is silver plated nylon that is then coated in a copper and tin alloy to protect it from abrasion. This is highly conductive & has a surface resistivity of < 1 ohm/sq. This is a great add-on to any E-Textiles project.
If you aren't sure what to do with conductive fabrics, check out some of these Instructables.
- It's conductive!
- Easily sew electronic features into your next project
- Great for use with the LilyPad
Dimensions:12 x 13" (304.8 x 330.2 mm)

Hi Shiemaa, The only information regarding this product we have is located I n the datasheet and we aren’t able to get a compatibility certificate. I have contacted the supplier to get if this material is suitable for skin contact and they have stated that the fabric is tin/nickel over silver-plated nylon. This is safe for humans to handle; however, skin oils will eventually cause the fabric to oxidize, changing both its colour and conductivity.
Hi Anne, The conductive fabric is designed to enable you to add e-textiles to a project. There is no indication of this product being able to be used for RFID protection.
Hello Dzung, Firstly I would like to apologise for the confusion as this product doesn’t stretch. The product you need to look at if you require it to be stretchy is product 2717. The conductivity the fabric may alter slightly when stretched. We measured around a 10% decrease in conductivity when full stretched.
In theory this might work if set up correctly but we can’t be responsible if the system fails, as such we are unable to provide any details regarding this. Homemade equipment could fail at any time and as such this should be kept in mind.
Yes it could be used as a switch although it may be better to use Conductive Hook & Loop (Velcro) Strip - 2.5 cm x 10 cm as this will give a better connection. Also the material won’t be affected being in touch with skin.
Yes it can be washed, however it would be advisable to hand wash the fabric, and then ensure it is completely dry before placing any power through it again
