Study on Conductivity of Plain Woven Fabric of Embedded Silver-Plated Fibers of Different Twists


Article Preview

This paper studies the conductivity of plain woven fabric of embedded silver-plated fibers of different twists. Five samples of different numbers of twists are tested under weft tensile. The results are the following: during the process of elongation, the resistance of fabric is bigger than the initial resistance, the rate of resistance change shows positive relationship with strain and presents a rising tendency generally; when the number of twists is 300 T/m, the rate of resistance change is bigger than other four fabrics under the same strain, the stability of changes of relative resistance of fabric is better than others; the rate of resistance change of fabric changes stably in the range of 0%~15% elongation.
