IND- Electronic textiles


Electronic textiles have integrated functionalities such as communication, sensors, displays, or thermal management.

In addition, electronic textiles can change their characteristics in response to external stimuli, for example mechanical, electrical, thermal and chemical changes in the environment.

Sportswear and health monitoring are among the main applications of electronic textiles.

These applications require wearable sensors which can measure pertinent physiological parameters and provide health information in real time, while remaining unobtrusive, comfortable, low cost, and easy to operate and interpret.

Today’s electronic textiles often use a combination of standard technology (rigid silicon chips and LEDs) with flexible, printed electronics.

Component integration is one of the main challenges in this type of hybrid electronics.
Materials available from DZP Technologies make it possible to create electronic circuitry directly on fabrics, without changing the fabric feel, performance and physical properties.

For example, our silver conductive inks and adhesives produce conductive tracks with outstanding mechanical properties and environmental stability. There is no deterioration of the conductive properties, even after extended exposure to 85% relative humidity at 85  ̊C. Many of our inks produce circuitry which can withstand washing in domestic laundry machines.

The examples below illustrate how our materials can be used to create novel and exciting electronics for integration into garments.
