Performance of Electrically Conductive Fabrics Based on Polyester/Metal Wire Wrapped Yarns
Electrically conductive fabrics were prepared with interlacing polyester yarns and wrapped yarn of polyester/NiCr filament. The wrapped yarns are lined in different distance along filling direction, and the effect of distance on electrically conductivity of fabrics with plain weave is analyzed. In addition, wearing properties including fabric thickness and air permeability of such fabrics are also tested. The results show that surface charge density decrease with number increase of wrapped yarns in filling direction. When wrapped yarns are arranged at 3 yarns/ 6 cm for twill weave, the fabric density and air permeability increase with fabric density.
